My name is Dr. Mike Lococo and I am the President of Silver Mist Productions Niagara.
( www.silvermist.ca) Over the past four years, we have educated and entertained 50,000 children
bringing them world class theatre featuring the world’s finest professional actors, musicians, and
support staff. Many people related to our profession help send the underprivileged children and
those who are financially compromised to enjoy these wonderful productions. This year we are
preparing to bring Scrooge to the area for the holiday in the first annual Dicken’s Festival in
conjunction with the Niagara Falls Festival of Lights.
There is no one project that showcases our profession and the people in all walks of the dental
community. I thought that if the dentists, dental dealers, technicians and sales people that support
us now were joined by our confreres we could send a resounding message to the world. “We in the
dental industry and profession care.”
Besides the schools that we assist we have donated tens of thousands of tickets to worthy
organizations such as Project Share, Family and Children Services, Big Brothers and Big Sisters,
The Salvation Army, The Red Cross, Boy and Girl Scouts to name a few. Specifically the money is
used for transportation, educational material, and admission plus meet and greets where the
children meet the cast and take photographs.
Victor Machaud of Sinclair Dental gives us $2,000.00 annually and we send 100 children to the
show on his dime. They can only repay him and his company by making little drawings of the
characters in the shoes with kisses and a thank you. I never told Vic I was going to relate this act of
generosity but he never swore me to secrecy.
This is where a great majority of the money would go, to the underprivileged. If the response from
the dental community is generous we will make it an annual Dicken’s Festival event and bring
Christmas greetings from coast to coast compliments and “Happy Holidays” from your friends in the
Dental Community. A project of this size will not happen overnight but it can happen just as many
groups go on tour.
Silver Mist Academy, our teaching facility, will be made affordable to those children
who wish to become skilled in the performing arts in the way of scholarships should the
fund be sufficient. This educational facility would be available to all students and hope-
fully will grow to be international. Formal instruction will be available to gifted children
whose family cannot find funds to pay for sessions and classes.
In a project this size there has to accountability and transparency to ensure the funds
are used responsibly. Our accountants are Durward, Jones, Barkwell & Company and
they will oversee all operations and will be able to report all activity on request. TD
Canada Trust and TD Bank will be our banking institutions.
We are a huge group in the dental industry and we all can afford a small contribution.
It would be a beautiful gift and your generosity would come back ten told as you are
recognized in all our programs, literature and advertising. The amount you wish to give
is personal. Any contribution will be greatly appreciated.
