Christmas Ornament Contest - December 2018
During this year’s holiday season we decorated our Braces-Themed Christmas tree with all the trimmings. It sparkled with strings of light, shiny retainers and, of course, those colorful balls that make the Christmas tree dazzle. In the spirit of the dazzling tree tradition, we also celebrated the holiday season with our Christmas Ornament Contest. Patients were challenged to guess the correct number of colorful ornaments in the jar, and everyone did a great job.
Congratulations go to Sonya Vera. With an amazing entry of 120, Sonya was just one away from the exact number of ornaments in the jar. As our winner, she received a Regal Cinemas Premier Movie Pack, complete with two tickets and a $10 concessions gift card. Thanks to all who joined in the contest fun!
Acorn Contest - November 2018
Falling acorns are a sure sign that autumn has arrived, so we decided to make them the feature of our Autumn Contest. Patients were challenged to guess the correct number of acorns in the jar, and our winner, Aubrey Shelby did an amazing job. Her guess of 625 was just 12 away from the actual number of acorns. As our winner, Aubrey took home a $35 Dick’s Sporting Goods gift card!
So how much do you know about acorns? Here’s some fun acorn trivia . . .
- Acorns are true nuts, and are the fruit of the oak tree.
- The older the tree gets, the more acorns it will produce because the tree must save up enough energy and resources to develop the fruit.
- Once an acorn falls to the ground, it has less than a 1 in 10,000 chance of growing into an oak tree.
Halloween Contest - October 2018
