4 Chances to Be a Hero

Puppies. Motorcycles. Housing … and teeth. This may be the weirdest combo of topics to ever appear in one place, but here it is.

More importantly, we promise you that each one offers purpose, and another way you can help better our community.

Dentistry From The Heart 

Saturday, April 22, 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Cary Family Dental, 1149 Kildaire Farm Road

For the sixth straight year, Cary Family Dental will offer free fillings, extractions or cleanings to adults, on a first-come basis. The event is through Dentistry From The Heart, a worldwide nonprofit dedicated to providing free dental care to those in need.

Not a dentist but want to help? It takes at least 50 volunteers to make this day run smoothly, and you can be one of them!

The Carying Place Benefit 

Friday, April 28, 6 to 10 p.m.

Prestonwood Country Club, Cary

The Carying Place teaches homeless, working families with children the life skills they need to attain independent living, while providing these families with short-term housing and support services.

Attend the 16th annual Benefit Auction, Buffet and Dancing, and you’ll be helping The Carying Place to deliver on its mission!

Life Experiences Poker Run 

Saturday, April 29, 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

Starts at Ray Price Harley-Davidson, Raleigh

What’s a poker run, you ask? At this event, each rider draws a playing card at each stop, and the rider with the highest poker hand at the last stop wins! And you don’t even have to know how to play poker.

The real beauty of the run is that it supports the work of Cary-based nonprofit Life Experiences, which offers adults with disabilities the chance to choose their work and the self-esteem of earning a wage. Ride in the poker run, or sponsor it, and you’re helping!

K9-3K Dog Walk and Woofstock 

Saturday, April 29, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Koka Booth Amphitheatre, Cary

Help the SPCA of Wake County celebrate 50 years of lifesaving work by joining in the 18th annual K9-3K Dog Walk and Woofstock!

Walk as a team or individual, or sponsor a team, to help meet this year’s goal of $225,000, money that will be used to rescue animals and provide needed medical care for animals who might not otherwise have a chance at survival.
