Kevin Carroll, MS, CP, FAAOP, the world-renowned prosthetist portrayed by Morgan Freeman in the smash box office hit Dolphin Tale, will serve as the guest speaker at The Dolphin Project’s “Dolphin and Desserts” fundraising event. The event is open to the general public and media, and will be held on May 19, 2012 at 6:30pm at Stewart Hall, First Presbyterian Church, 520 Washington Avenue, Savannah.
Carroll is well-known for his work creating the first prosthetic tail for a dolphin named Winter, which was featured in the hit 3D family movie Dolphin Tale. During the research and development necessary to fit a prosthetic tail on Winter, Carroll and his colleague worked with scientists to create Winters Gel, a special silicone gel sleeve that is now making prosthetic limbs more comfortable for human amputees.
Additionally a silent auction will be held featuring wonderful gifts, gift certificates and artwork from local and internationally renown artists including Guy Harvey and Wyland.
A $5.00 donation is appreciated. Those interested in attending should contact Dolores to RSVP at DolphinsandDesserts@Gma il.com. Seating is limited.
