M&M Madness Contest - February 2014
During our M&M Madness Contest patients were challenged to guess the correct number of M&M's in the jar. With matching entries of 2050, both Brennan Gray and Jacqueline Corcoran came closest to the actual number. As our winners, Brennan and Jacqueline took home movie tickets to Regal Cinemas and a bag of M&M treats!
During our M&M Madness Contest, patient were also asked to put on their thinking caps and try their luck at our M&M Trivia Contest. We had two patients answer six of the seven trivia questions correctly. Congratulations go to Morgan Haller and Neriah Evans (not pictured) who also won movie tickets to Regal Cinemas.
While M&M's are in households across the world, you might be surprised to learn that one of your favorite chocolate candies have a story all their own. To see all the trivia contest results, you can download the results here. Thanks to all who joined in the M&M Madness!

Take Me Out To The Ballgame Contest - May 2014

Team Trivia Contest - June 2014

Fun facts like “I have a pet chameleon” and “I love playing horseshoes” kept many patients guessing, but Harley and Shelby Greb matched 100% of those fun facts correctly! As winners, they took home gift cards to Pizza Hut and Sweet Frog Yogurt!
Salt Water Taffy Summer Contest - July 2014
It just wouldn’t be summer without trips to the beach, strolls on the boardwalk, and memories of caramel corn and salt water taffy. While those gooey, chewy summertime treats are off limits to those in braces, there’s no reason why we couldn’t have some fun with them during this year’s Summer Contest!
Patients were challenged to guess the number of salt water taffy in the jar. While many of you came very close, we had just one patient guess the exact number. Congratulations go to Johnny Galant. As our winner, Johnny received four passes to Churchville Miniature Golf. We even threw in gift certificates to Arctic Circle for some ice cream treats after the golf game! Wondering how many were in the jar? There were 285 taffy!
The Great Eraser Caper Contest - September 2014
The theme of this year’s back-to-school contest was the simple, yet magical tool we just can’t live without . . . The Eraser! What could be more magical, after all, than a little wad of rubber that undoes our mistakes and allows us to change our minds?
