NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ –On Friday, August 31, 2012, Sampson Davis MD, Rameck Hunt MD, and George Jenkins DMD, fondly known as The Three Doctors will host their annual gala to celebrate twelve years of non-profit outreach through The Three Doctors Foundation. The gala will be held at the Hyatt Regency Hotel beginning at 6:00pm with a one hour reception, followed by dinner and remarks by special guest speakers Lisa Price and Eric LeGrand. Individual reservations are $200 per person and corporate sponsorships are also available. Attendees will include corporate executives, community leaders and individual supporters.

The gala theme is “A Brighter Tomorrow for Today’s Youth” and will highlight current and future outreach coordinated by the doctors throughout and beyond the New Jersey community. Annual foundation programs include a Healthy Mind & Body Walkathon, Mentor Day and Positive Peer Pressure Challenge. This special gala will be emceed by CBS journalist Michelle Miller.

Keynote speaker and former Rutgers defensive tackle Eric LeGrand, was paralyzed from the neck down in October 2010 from a hit suffered in the third quarter of the Scarlet Knights' game against Army at MetLife Stadium. He recently retired from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, a little less than three months after his symbolic signing with the NFL team. His inspirational story will now become a must-read biography scheduled for release this September. Guest speaker Lisa Price is the founder of Carol’s Daughter, Inc. From humble beginnings in her Brooklyn kitchen, Ms. Price transformed her beloved hobby of mixing up fragrances and creams at home into a multi-million dollar beauty empire.

The mission of The Three Doctors Foundation is to inspire and motivate youth through education and to achieve leadership and career success in their community through the formation of positive peer and mentor relationships. The foundation stands on the premise that “Our Children Can Not Aspire To Be What They Can Not See.” In 2009, the BET Awards honored the three doctors as humanitarians of the year.
