Houston, TX (PRWEB) April 7, 2009
One of the area's leading weight loss surgeons, Dr. Duc Vuong of Texas City Surgical, is willing to provide a free Lap-Band® surgery to one worthy contestant who wins his new charitable service contest.
Dr. Vuong, who immigrated to Texas from Vietnam as a child, is a strong believer in community service, and is actively involved in several charities. His Lap-Band Giveaway contest is intended to inspire patients to their own acts of community service by highlighting the material and psychological benefits of charitable work. His panel of specialists is looking for an entrant who has done significant amounts of charity work in the past, but now because of their weight and health conditions are no longer able to dedicate as much time to charity. Dr. Vuong wants to provide this person with a possibly life-changing surgery, in the hopes that this person will get healthier and be able to return back to the charitable works that are such an inspiration to others.
Prospective weight loss surgery candidates can enter the contest online at Dr. Vuong's support group website, http://www.MoreFromMyBand.com. After signing up for Dr. Vuong's free monthly Lap-Band e-newsletter, entrants will receive a contest registration form via email. Entries must be received by May 1, 2009, after which a panel of judges will review all applications and select five finalists on the basis of their charitable or community service. The winner will receive a free adjustable gastric banding surgery, and four runners-up will also receive great prizes.
There is no cost to enter, and no purchase is necessary. All registrants must be legal U.S. residents between the ages of 18 and 65. Winners will be announced on August 8, 2009, at the MFMB Houston Lap-Band Conference that will be held at South Shore Harbour and Resort. The conference will raise money for two nonprofit organizations, the Wounded Warrior Project and The Snowdrop Foundation. For more information, visit http://www.MoreFromMyBand.com.
