Many families with a severely ill child find themselves in the hospital on important holidays, anniversaries, events and birthdays. It’s hard to take a day off treatment, so there are often not many options to try and make the day special. But that’s where Little Smiles comes in. Because of generous donations we were able to surprise 8 year old Amery with a birthday party at Jeff Gordon Children’s Hospital! She is an inspiration to all those around her, and we’re thrilled we could make her day special. Just look at that smile!
“If you never did you should. These things are fun, and fun is good.” What better way to create a smile than celebrating Dr. Suess’s birthday! Little Smiles volunteers brought books and coloring supplies and lots of fun to Levine and Jeff Gordon’s Children’s hospitals. We aren’t sure who enjoyed themselves more…the kids or Margi, Niall and Laura! But there were smiles all around.
What a beautiful afternoon of sun, delicious local craft beers and helping to create little smiles! Golftoberfest was a hit, raising over $20K for local children thanks to participation by local brewers (Ass Clown Brewing Company, Bayne Brewing Company, D9 Brewing Company, Legion Brewing and Sugar Creek Brewing) and our sponsors! Thanks to all who came out to help bring joy to local children in 2017!
