The members of the American Student Dental Association (ASDA) want to wish you a wonderful fall break and invite you to attend our Benefit Night the Monday after we return, September 28th from 5 p.m.- 9 p.m. at Bellacino’s/TCBY. We are hoping to enlist the help (and appetite) of our ATSU and local community to raise funds for our second annual pre-dental day conference! What better way to catch up with friends after break than over a pizza (or pasta, salad, sandwiches, ice cream)!

The fundraiser includes orders for dine in, take out and delivery! When ordering food, simply present the flyer below or let the cashier know that you are eating on behalf of ASDA, and 15% of the proceeds from the night will be donated. We will also have copies of the flyer available that day outside of Bellacino’s. Come enjoy some delicious food! Thank you in advance for your support!

We look forward to seeing you all there!
