We were able throw a glorious Alice in Wonderland Tea Party for our friends at Quantum House on August 1. Alice herself stopped by to lead the children down the rabbit hole and into wonderland where they so much fun sipping tea and nibbling special treats.
Thank you Serenity Garden Tea House & Cafe for the curious treats and potions. Thanks to our friends at Capital One for all of your help serving tea and playing games. The young patients staying at the Quantum House for treatment had so much fun sipping tea and nibbling special treats.
For the first time the annual Pirate and Princess Night at Roger Dean Chevrolet Stadium benefited Little Smiles. A portion of the proceeds will go directly to benefit the children we serve.
Kids and adults had a blast at the July 14 pirate and princess-themed event, presented by Gilbane. The evening included character meet and greets, bounce houses, face painting and a fireworks show, which took place after the Jupiter Hammerheads played the Charlotte Stone Crabs.
“Partnering with Little Smiles makes our Pirate and Princess Night a true community event,” says Jamie Toole, General Manager for the Jupiter Hammerheads and Director of Corporate Sales for Roger Dean Chevrolet Stadium. “We get to make kids smile inside and outside of the ballpark.”
We invited some of the children honored as stars from our Stars Ball and some other very special kids to join us in the Little Smiles VIP Suite with delicious food courtesy of C.R. Chicks and Chic-fil-A The Gardens.
“We are so appreciative of this opportunity from Roger Dean Chevrolet Stadium,” says Little Smiles Board President Chip Lubeck. “What an incredible way for more people in our community to get to know Little Smiles and see the impact we have in the lives of local children who are hurting.”

We were thrilled to be a part of the 2018 Express Conference at the Four Seasons Resort Palm Beach. One of our very own Little Smiles stars, Amanda, was the guest judge for the team-building activity where teams from Express built ten-foot-tall marionettes out of cardboard and pvc pipes. Amanda was delighted to see the progress and even helped design of some of the teams puppets. She chose the impressive Michael Jackson puppet for first place, Celeste the Unicorn in second, and Bikini Babe in third. Thank you so much for having us and for your your generous $5,000 donation to Little Smiles.
It was a beautiful day for the 18th Annual Little Smiles Golf Tournament presented by FITTEAM. Chili’s Grill & Bar was there with cold margaritas and Ruth’s Chris served up delicious sliders. North Palm Beach Bahama Bucks handed out cold, delicious snow for our kids from the Paley Institute and Real Life Ranch.
Special guests spoke on our behalf and the Jupiter Christian School Choir was there to serenade guests. We were honored to share the green with our pal Tommy Morrissey, seven-year-old golf prodigy from Palm Beach Gardens. Tommy gave lessons to Little Smiles children from local hospitals, shelters and other facilities.
Golfers had a blast playing the Champion Course at PGA National and then hanging with Little Smiles for the awards dinner. Thank you to all of our sponsors, golfers and amazing volunteers for making the 18th Annual Little Smiles Golf Tournament a tremendous success! Thank you for bringing the smiles!
THANK YOU Stiles and Legacy Place Shops for your incredibly generous donation to Little Smiles! We are so grateful to be included as the beneficiary of this year’s Fork & Cork event. We had a wonderful experience working together on this unique community event.
The St. Clare Catholic School Fishing Tournament benefiting Little Smiles provided a special day out for 17 of our past stars, patients and kids in foster care! Each child had a chance to reel in some big fish off the docks of Sailfish Marina and took home their very own fishing pole. Our past star Aron caught the biggest fish of the tournament and won first prize with his 40-plus-pound wahoo! There were HUGE little smiles all around!
