Posted on: September 7, 2018 | Media, Press Release

Patients who brought unopened school supplies to their scheduled appointments at any Boston Dental Group location before the start of the 2018-19 school year received free oral cancer screenings, and were entered to win a Lights FC prize pack.

LAS VEGAS – As students in the Las Vegas valley prepared for the 2018-19 school year, Las Vegas Lights FC and Boston Dental Group teamed up to make sure every child was as prepared as possible.

The two entities joined together for a Back To School giveaway promotion, supporting the After School All-Stars school supply drive. After School All-Stars serves 6,000-plus kids between Kindergarten and 8th Grade at 17 Clark County public schools.

Lights FC home match at Cashman Field, vs. Rio Grande Valley FC Toros, doubled as the club’s Back to School Bash. The first 2,000 kids 12 and under who entered the stadium received free Lights FC backpacks, presented by Boston Dental Group. For full details on the Back to School Bash and other upcoming Lights FC events, visit the Lights 2018 USL Schedule.

“We are so grateful to the Las Vegas Lights Football Club and Boston Dental Group for considering the students of After School All-Stars for this school supply drive,” said Jodi Manzella, Executive Director of After School All-Stars Las Vegas. “The cost of school supplies adds up quickly, and for many of the families we serve, they simply are not affordable. Giving the deserving students of After School All-Stars new supplies not only eases the financial burden on the parents, but it gives the students a proud and positive way to begin the new school year. On behalf of the 6,500 students enrolled in the program throughout Clark County, we send our profound thanks and appreciation to both the Boston Dental Group and our hometown Las Vegas Lights Football Club.”
