During its annual Mistletoe & Martinis patient appreciation event on December 6, 2019, Primera Plastic Surgery raised $700 for Kids House of Seminole, a child advocacy center that aids child abuse victims and their families.
For the past five years, Primera has donated the proceeds from its signature holiday event to the child abuse prevention center. Edward J. Gross, M.D., a double board-certified facial plastic surgeon specializing in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery at Primera Plastic Surgery, matched the amount raised at the event. Dr. Gross and the Primera staff will present Ernie Hamilton, Executive Director of Kids House, with a check in January.
“It’s an honor and a privilege to partner with Kids House of Seminole,” says Dr. Gross. “We are delighted to contribute to their efforts to prevent child abuse and help and protect vulnerable children suffering from trauma.”
