One of the wonderful facilities we partner with is Gilda’s Club of South Florida. They provide support for families and children who are affected by cancer. Every year they host a fun night in Noogieland for the families. Our amazing volunteer took the night to deliver candies, refreshments and smiles to all of the kids at Noogiefest!
Kids are so resilient, and sometimes they just need another chance to celebrate! That’s what this little guy told us when we came to celebrate his birthday a day later. He said, “I’m so happy because I really needed a birthday redo, yesterday was no fun.” He was so excited to receive Pokemon collector cards, that he told us completed his birthday celebration continuation!
The nurses and staff were excited for a Halloween treat from Little Smiles, costumes, candy and fresh popped popcorn!
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!
The kids at Real Life Children’s Ranch have been guests of Little Smiles at many of our signature events this year. We decided they deserved an event of their own! Together with the generous volunteer help from Palm Beach Atlantic University’s Girls Basketball Team, we created a fun field day at the ranch. Snow cones, water slides, bounce houses, Nerf Gun fights, and custom tie-dye shirts made for a fantastic field day!
We just launched our treasure box sponsorship program! With the generous donations from the Law Offices of Craig Goldenfarb, we were able to place five new treasure boxes in facilities throughout Palm Beach and Dade counties.
These boxes are filled with small toys for children undergoing procedures or waiting in emergency rooms. They are great prize incentives for our pediatric patients! If your company would like to sponsor a treasure box, please contact Little Smiles Program Manager Kaylin Bassett at email@example.com for more information.
