Orthodontics patients kick off official start to summer at Pittsburg Aquatic Center

Updated:
Quite a crowd turned out to the Pittsburg Aquatic Center this morning to officially kick off summer.

A free pool party was hosted by staff members at Pinamonte Orthodontics, offering free sunglasses and food for all who attended.

Organizers say the annual event, which drew close to 300 orthodontics patients and their families, provides a great way to show patient appreciation, especially to those who drive a long distance to appointments from their hometowns in Fredonia, Girard, Chanute or Pleasanton.

"I love the pool party because I get to hang out with my friends and just relax and enjoy the water and the sun," said Taylor Michael, 7th grader.

"It's a nice way to have fun, to see them in a non-patient setting and to give back," said Gina Pinamonti, Pinamonti Orthodontics.  "It's just a great way for my team to work together and to see the patients."

Each patient was entered in a raffle drawing for a chance to win prizes, some of which were gift cards to area businesses.
