Welcome to our “Spreading Smiles Across the Miles” virtual fundraising event!

Usually, I would be addressing you from behind a podium on a Wednesday evening during our Annual Cocktail

Party. But, like so much else in 2020, this year’s fundraising campaign is much different. Still, I hope you find your

experience engaging, and I hope you are moved to support HealthLink Dental Clinic’s work.

Our work – providing free dental care to disadvantaged, working adults and veterans – continues.

Despite having to close our doors for three months…

Despite having to develop new policies and procedures to keep our patients, volunteers, and staff safe…

Despite a number of unbudgeted expenses to procure PPE and new equipment…

Our work continues because supporters like you have confidence in our organization and an unrelenting

willingness to give a helping hand to your neighbors in need.


Our goal is to raise $30,000 to directly support our free dental clinic. We have been encouraged by the generosity

of our event sponsors and donors already, but we need your help to cross the finish line.

In an already difficult year, we expect the need for our no-cost oral health services to grow. I hope you will

continue your support of our mission and help us end 2020 stronger and more resilient than ever before.

Raquel Braemer, CFRE

Executive Director

I want to thank everyone for supporting tonight’s Spreading Smiles Across the Miles, HealthLink’s virtual version of

our annual Anniversary Cocktail Gala. This year, even more than others in the past, your support is essential. The

two driving factors that allow us to treat our patients, who are veterans and low-income wage earners, are

financial resources and volunteer support. We cannot do without either.

I am proud of how we have been able to adapt the protocols and procedures of our clinic to protect our patients,

staff, and volunteers from the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic while continuing the important work of our


I want to thank our staff and volunteer host committee that took the challenge and created this unique virtual

fundraising event. On behalf of the HealthLink Board of Directors, I pay tribute to our award winners: Daniel &

Eleanora Cheney, Dr. Arnold Pfannenstiel, and the Montgomery Bucks Dental Society.

Enjoy the evening and keep spreading smiles!

Daniel and Eleanora Cheney

The true definition of humanitarians,

Daniel and Elenora Cheney spent much

of their lives together giving back to

their community. Through their private

foundation, The Danellie Foundation,

Mr. and Mrs. Cheney awarded more than

$35 million to deserving organizations.

Dear friends of HealthLink founder,

Eugene Jackson and his wife Mary Lou,

the Cheneys began supporting the

organization from its establishment.

Over nearly 20 years, Daniel and Eleanora have donated more than $610,000

to HealthLink. Sadly, Daniel passed away in 2016, but Elenora and her family

members continue their philanthropic work to this day.

The generosity of the Cheneys has been truly transformational for

HealthLink, and for that we are eternally grateful.

HealthLink Dental Clinic is thrilled to honor

Montgomery Bucks

Dental Society

Since the first visit by HealthLink's former

Executive Director, Sister Lois, to announce the

opening of a free clinic in Southampton, the

Montgomery Bucks Dental Society (MBDS) has

been a treasured partner of the organization.

Not only has MBDS financially supported

HealthLink, but over the years countless members

have volunteered their professional services in the

clinic, the society has helped publicize and create

awareness around various HealthLink initiatives

and projects, and has co-sponsored continuing

education courses with the organization.

Without the multi-faceted support and true partnership of MBDS, HealthLink

would not have been able to provide services to the vast number of community

members that is has over the last 19 years.

HealthLink Dental Clinic is thrilled to honor

the Montgomery Bucks Dental Society

with the

2020 Community Partner Award.

Arnold Pfannenstiel, DDS

Volunteering his time in the clinic since

the doors opened nearly 20 years ago,

Arnold Pfannenstiel, DDS has become a

familiar and friendly face to countless

HealthLink patients, as well as staff

members and other volunteers.

Dr. Pfannenstiel has donated thousands

of hours providing free dental care to

military veterans and low-income

earning adults who live in either Bucks or

Montgomery County, leadership to the

organization as a member of the Board of Directors, and guidance as the

clinic’s volunteer Dental Director.

In addition to his volunteer work at HealthLink, Dr. Pfannenstiel has been

providing quality dentistry in the Bucks County area for the last 30 years and

has volunteered with other dental organizations that ensure that patients

receive the dental treatments they desperately need but cannot afford.
