Mid Year Dental Fair
Congratulations to our CARE Fair Committee and all other volunteers! Together you cared for 171 patients during the JLSLS's Mid Year Dental CARE Fair on Saturday, February 8, 2014. That is 70 more patients than last year!
By 10 am, the maximum capacity for service was reached, and unfortunately some patients were turned away. We were able to refer them to other free dental clinics and to the League's upcoming CARE Fair, which will be held July 11 and July 12.
The CARE Fair Committee gave out 19 vouchers for follow-up care to be used in three different clinics in the Salt Lake Valley totaling $3250.

Junior League Member Spotlight
Inside The League:
Renee Leta has been a member of the Salt Lake Jr. League for over four years. During this time, she has served on the CRPD committee and on the board as Community VP. Renee was part of the team that reviewed the past three year collaborative projects to determine the best “next-step” for the league. During this time, it was decided that the Salt Lake Jr. League was doing such a great job addressing the most urgent needs in our community and continued focus would be placed on the League’s signature projects.
“It was a nice indication that the League had its pulse on the community and its needs.”
Renee is currently on the Nominating and Placement Committee serving as an advocate. In this role, she has gone above and beyond expectations in order to truly get to know the members for whom she advocates. She is the kind of person who does more listening than talking which is exactly the type of person one would want as an advocate and fellow Jr. League member.
Outside The League:
Renee is a Salt Lake City native and, although she has moved away a couple of times, she always finds her way back to the state. She lives in the hip 9th and 9th neighborhood with her husband and dog Annie. For fun, you can find Renee outside skiing, fly fishing, mountain biking or gardening. This could be why, when asked what she could not live without, Renee replied
“Cheap sunglasses - I misplace too many each year to afford to lose quality sunglasses.”
Renee holds a degree from the University of Pennsylvania Annenberg School for Communications and from the LBJ School of Public Policy at the University of Texas at Austin. She now works as an account supervisor for a digital and direct marketing company.
Renee recently volunteered at the Women Helping Women clothing.
