Discus Dental Help Raise Money for Kids


Culver City, CA, June 15, 2010 – Discus Dental, LLC, a broad based manufacturer of leading dental products and the makers of Zoom!, announced today its participation in the 2010 Marcus Allen Invitational Charity Golf Tournament. The tournament, held on June 14, 2010 at the North Ranch Country Club in Westlake Village, California brought out some of the biggest names in sports and entertainment including Julius "Doctor J" Irving, Barry Bonds, Joe Theismann, Junior Seau, Don Cheadle, Joe Pesci and more. The event, organized by Hall of Fame running back Marcus Allen, was part of a weekend program that also included an exclusive Fashion Show, Poker Tournament and Party at Lucky Strikes Lanes in Hollywood, California. The annual program raises money for children's charities including Fresh Start Surgical Gifts and Success Through The Arts Foundation.

"It was truly an honor for us to help sponsor the Marcus Allen Invitational", said Steve Semmelmayer, CEO of Discus Dental. "Marcus was an extraordinary football player, but his contributions off the field are even more impressive. When given the opportunity to help him raise money for the Fresh Start Surgical Gifts and Success Through The Arts programs, we couldn't help but want to be part of this special event."

Fresh Start Surgical Gifts provides free reconstructive plastic surgery and related medical services to disadvantaged children and young people with physical deformities. Services including surgery, dental, laser, and speech clinics and are provided in Marcus Allen’s hometown of San Diego, California by volunteer teams of surgeons and medical professionals.

Success Through The Arts Foundation is dedicated to using the arts as a catalyst to the education of students who have been traditionally underserved by the public schools, underrepresented in higher education, and deprived of opportunities that could enable them to realize rich and productive lives.
