Welcome Nicole Grossmayer!

Welcome Nicole Grossmayer!

We are absolutely thrilled to welcome Nicole Grossmayer to the Little Smiles family as our new executive director.

Nicole has been in the nonprofit field for 10 years and has worked with both national and local organizations, including The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, The National Multiple Sclerosis Society, and the Legal Aid Society of Palm Beach. She is excited to bring her varied background in donor cultivation, event execution, and sponsorship acquisition to the Little Smiles team.

“I have been a fan of Little Smiles for years now, and am thrilled to play a role in providing opportunities for kids to still be kids while going through unimaginable times,” says Nicole. 

When not working, Nicole enjoys spending time with her husband Seth, their dogs Lola and Dahlia, and cat, Lucy.

Please give Nicole a warm welcome when you see her out and about at our Little Smiles events around town. We are so grateful to have her as part of a team!

 

Vanilla Ice Brings the Smiles to Palms West

Vanilla Ice Brings the Smiles to Palms West

Our very generous friend Vanilla Ice stopped by Palms West Hospital today to meet some of children and families Little Smiles helps. What a great way to celebrate his $25,000 donation from Celebrity Family Feud -pizza and toys for the entire pediatric unit!

“Kids are kids and they want to enjoy being a kid no matter what’s going on in their lives,” said Rob Van Winkle (Vanilla Ice). “If you can put a smile on their face for a brief moment, it’s worth its weight in gold.”

Read more about Vanilla Ice’s donation and visit in the Palm Beach Post. 

 

Birthday Fit for a Princess

Birthday Fit for a Princess

Often times children are hospitalized during their favorite days of the year, their BIRTHDAY! At Little Smiles, we make sure they are celebrated with balloons, cupcakes, and of course a birthday surprise! It is so fun to see their little faces light up when they see what their nurse has requested for them. (Especially for this mini Moana fan!) Happy birthday sweet girl!
