On Friday, the Naples Winter Wine Festival, a three day philanthropic event held in Naples, Florida, will be celebrating its 10th anniversary of raising money for local charities. One of the main organizations that the wine festival supports is the Naples Children and Education Foundation (NCEF) Pediatric Dental Center, a state-of-the-art clinic that provides dental care to underprivileged kids.
The center has been open for 13 months and has served over 6,000 needy children whose families can't afford proper dental care, according to ABC7.com. So far, the wine festival has raised over $5 million for the clinic.
"If a place like this can't help [kids in need], I don't know where else they'd go," said Michael Cellitti of the NCEF Pediatric Dental Center, quoted by the news source.
The NCEF Center is the only facility of its kind between the Miami and Gainesville areas. To assist low income families in need, the clinic offers a sliding payment scale based on household income.
Families who are searching for ways to save money on dental care may want to consider discount dental plans, which can save up to 60 percent compared to traditional insurance plans.
