Dr. Yee participated in the charity golf tournament to help raise money and awareness for the Leukemia and Lyphoma Society and their mission to cure blood cancers. Teaming up with his sister, Dr. Yee placed second in the tournament and was part of a big effort raising an estimated $13,000 for the LLS Foundation. He also donated the Oral B iO9 Electric Toothbrush and whitening trays for the silent auction that occurred later in May.
October 2015: Halloween Candy Buy-Back
A big thank you to all who donated candy - over 850 pounds were collected! The candy went to our troops via Operation Gratitude, and to children around the world through Operation Christmas Child.
Thanks to our office team and Nicole's daughter Paige for collecting, separating chocolate from non-chocolate candy, and for boxing and loading the payload!
The Carr's and mascot Daisy delivered the sweets to Van Nuys, where they were added to the 400,000 pounds to be distributed. That's 20 million pieces of candy! We also shared candy in almost 300 Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes, packed by students at Sacred Heart School, Saratoga.
