mda-jailIt’s true. Staff members Toni Hysong and Trixy Buckmaster were arrested on July 31, 2009, guilty of having big hearts when it comes to the Muscular Dystrophy Association.

Both Toni and Trixy (representing the Mandarin, Fleming Island and Palatka offices) successfully completed jail time in order to raise $500 during The MDA Lockup Event – enough to pay for a child’s wheel chair repairs for an entire year. And the MDA isn’t the only one taking notice of their “good behavior.”

The famous Jerry Lewis Telethon, slated for Labor Day weekend, will be mentioning Orthodontic Specialists of Florida for its charitable work thanks to everyone’s generous donation to the cause. Be sure to watch it!

A big thanks goes out to all who contributed to making this event a success for the kids. This was just one more example of how staff members at Orthodontic Specialists of Florida help the community to benefit children. Toni and Trixy say they hope to participate in the event again, citing how rewarding and unforgettable the experience was. Maybe hard time isn’t so hard after all. Way to go team!
