- 2nd Annual Free Dentistry Day
12777 Atlantic Blvd., #26, Jacksonville FL 32216
Dr. Rajaei and Dr. Ahmed of ASAP Dental Care, in partnership with Dentistry from the Heart, continue to help the Jacksonville community!Dentistry from the Heart, a worldwide, nonprofit organization, helps those who lack access to quality dental care.Jacksonville, FL – April 24, 2019Access to dental services is one of the most pressing healthcare needs for those who cannot afford regular trips to the dentist. To assist those in need, Dr. Rajaei and Dr. Ahmed are hosting their 2nd annual free dentistry day on Wednesday, April 24, 2019. Dental services will be offered to those over the age of 12 years at ASAP Dental Care, 7451 103rd St., Suite 18, Jacksonville FL, 32210 and ASAP Atlantic Dental Care, 12777 Atlantic Blvd., #26, Jacksonville FL 32216. Patient registration opens at 6:00am followed by an opening ceremony at 6:45am. The firstpatients will be seen at 7:00am. An estimated 150 patients will receive treatment such as a free cleaning, free filling, or free extraction. Services will be provided on a first come, first servedbasis. Dr. Rajaei and Dr. Ahmed will be supported by more than 200 volunteers including, local dentists, dental hygienists and dental assistants.About Dentistry from the HeartDr. Monticciolo started his nonprofit, Dentistry from the Heart to help adults who lack access to quality dental care. He knew of many charities and organizations that help to provide free dentalcare to children and veterans, but felt adults could benefit from donated dental care as well. Since starting his nonprofit organization, Dentistry from the Heart in 2001, over 500,000 peoplehave been helped and over $25 million dollars in free dentistry has been donated. Studies have shown that dental problems account for hundreds of thousands of emergency room visits eachyear. The number of Americans hospitalized due to preventable dental infections is on the rise. Untreated decay and abscesses can lead to serious, even life threatening complications.Unfortunately for patients, many, if not most emergency departments are unequipped to treat dental conditions. According to the Florida Department of Health, 125,579 people under the ageof 65 were seen in the emergency room for preventable visits from dental conditions in 2017. In Pasco County, that number is 3,311. In 2007, according to Department of Health for the State ofFlorida, 19.2% of adults in Florida were unable to see a dentist because of the cost. The Oral Health Florida coalition released a report in February 2017, stating that 146,612 adults over theage of 21 were seen at an emergency room for a dental related visit, resulting in charges of $241,618,706.For More information please contact:Catherine Chung – DirectorOffice: 727-849-2002 Cell: 941-302-3373Email: email@example.com
- Jacksonville 48 Hour Film Project 2019
Jacksonville 48 Hour Film Project 2019CONTACT: Adam Madrid, (904) 707-0386,firstname.lastname@example.org“Jacksonville 48 Hour Film Project 2019”Jacksonville, FL (April 2, 2019) – It began with young filmmakers, who grew up together. In elementary school they had a vision to one day make movies. The group consisted of Adam Madrid, Joshua Stadt, Jeremiah Stadt and Michael Geselbracht. They would be known as “Argyle Forest Films”.In 2007, one of the friends discussed a new film contest coming to Jacksonville called the 48 Hour Film Project. The film competition consists of making a short film in 48 hours. Filmmakers are not aware of what they are filming until that Friday. They select a genre and are provided elements (prop, line of dialogue, and character) that each film will have to include. They are told they have until Sunday evening to write, shoot, edit and turn in the completed film or it is considered late.The 48 Hour Film Project was brought to Jacksonville by Mac McDonald, who became the first Jacksonville City Producer for the contest. The 48 Hour Film Project originated in Washington, D.C. in 2001 and has spawned into an international film contest with over 130 cities and the winner of each city goes on to the international contest called Filmapalooza, which takes place in a different city every year. Each film represented at Filmapalooza has a chance to secure a spot in the Short Film Corner at the Cannes Film Festival in France.The gentlemen formed a team with their friends and family and entered feeling optimistic. The team did not win their first year; however, they ended up winning Best Film in 2014. Their film “No Laughing Matter” went on to Filmapalooza later that year and screened at the historic Chinese Theatre in Hollywood, CA. In October 2016, Adam Madrid, along with his wife, Monique Madrid decided to co-create LOL JAX Film Festival. The vision for LOL JAX was simple. It created a platform that would allow local community filmmakers, actors/actresses, and comedians to showcase their short films and talent. The genre comedy was chosen as a way to promote positivity to the audience. “Love Our Locals” by “Laughing Out Loud” is the motto for the festival. They mix local comedy shorts, local stand-up comedians, and local musical bands to be a part of this event and feature a hilarious comedian host by the name of Jenn Weeks. The festival sold out in the first two years and the third annual will be held later this year in August. The festival recently won Folio Weekly’s Best Film Festival 2018 in Jacksonville. In 2018, Chris Ackerman, the second City Producer of Jacksonville decided to retire from the position. After receiving several nominations for the vacant position along with their film crew’s blessing, Adam and Monique submitted themselves to become the new City Producers and were selected due to their festival experience and passion for growth in the local arts.The pair hit the ground running creating a campaign called “Are You Next?” which was significant for marking a new era in the Jacksonville 48 Hour Film Project. They are eager to instill excitement to the new round of filmmakers who sign up to compete to be this years winning team to represent our city at Filmapalooza which will be held in Rotterdam, Netherlands.Adam and Monique have not forgotten how much they owe Mac McDonald, Chris Ackerman, as well as, PRI Productions for continuing to keep this event going and giving local filmmakers a platform to challenge themselves to make a movie in a short span of time which in turn will have their work shown in a proper movie theatre setting for all their friends, family, and community to enjoy. The Madrids are elated to announce the Jacksonville 48 Hour Film Project for 2019 will have a kickoff and drop-off event at Hemming Park with food trucks, drinks, music and entertainment that is open to the public. They have the support of the Jacksonville Film and Television Office, Kessler Creative and PRI Productions. Filming weekend is Friday, May 17th through Sunday, May 19th. With their “thinking outside the box” approach, they partnered with MOSH and will have the screenings atthe Bryan-Gooding Planetarium 7pm-9pm, on Tuesday, May 21st (Screening Group A), Wednesday, May 22nd (Screening Group B) and Thursday, May 23 rd (Screening Group C). The Best Of / Awards Show will be held 7pm-10pm on Wednesday, May 29 th with a rooftop-style reception at the same location. They want this event to be an experience for all who attend. Tickets are available at the MOSH box office or online at www.themosh.org/event/jacksonville48filmproject.Team registration is open at www.48hourfilm.com/Jacksonville.
