BIDS FOR KIDS 2005! A Silent Auction for the UNC Craniofacial Center will be held on November 6, 2005 from 2pm – 5pm at Lake Hogan Farms Clubhouse in Chapel Hill, NC. You’re invited!Bring the family! In addition to unique auction items, we are planning loads of entertainment for children: a Bounce House, Climbing Slide, games, entertainment, face painting, hair color, much more AND music all afternoon long! We have a signed basketball from last year’s NCAA basketball champs, a signed football from the ever-improving UNC team, the usual auction offerings, gift certificates and many one-of-a-kind items made by UNC faculty and staff. Adult tickets are $8, Children $5. Please complete an invitation and return it by Nov. 1. The proceeds from this event will go to the payment of treatment for families who are in financial need. Please email Mary Barnard for more information.

The UNC Craniofacial Center is the only comprehensive center in the state. We see all children regardless of ability to pay. Often specialized services are not available in local communities or are too expensive for the family. We jump right in with all the services we can provide at the lowest possible cost to the family. Some of the treatments, like orthodontics, surgery, and teeth replacement are VERY costly and are not always included in the average insurance benefit package. This is where your donation will be spent.

Some individual items for auction are a hand-knitted blanket, scarf, fused glass bowl, pottery, cakes, dinner in a pinch, swimming lessons, jewelry, quilted wall hanging, and a pencil drawing by one of our patients.
