Mr. Robinson spoke about the charity. This Scholarship Fund was established in 2000 by the Dental Association of PEI and transferred to the CFPEI in 2010. The fund was created in honour of Dr. Gerry Barrett, an esteemed long-time Island dentist. The award is granted to an Island student enrolled in a Dentistry program at Dalhousie University. A second component to the fund is a Field of Interest Fund that provides a grant to a charity that offers services and programs to benefit dental patients in financial need. PFA Canada presented a $10,000 check to this most worthy cause.
