A free, two-day dental clinic held in New Haven's Hillhouse High School provided important dental services to approximately 1,000 people from around the state. Patients seeking dental work lined up around the block for services ranging from root canals and fillings to X-rays and more. More than 1,000 volunteers, including approximately 100 dentists and technicians provided care to those who could not otherwise afford it. The tenth annual event was funded with a $30,000 grant from The Foundation's Health Services Fund, established in 1979 by Grace E. Marvin in memory of her parents John and Adella, and The Anne Hope Bennett Fund, established in 1943 by Ms. Bennett as a preference fund for health matters. Both funds
were established by bequest.
