Our History

The Florida Chapter of Little Smiles has been operating in Palm Beach County and the greater southeast Florida region since 1999. The charity was launched by a local businessman named Chip Donohue who inspired his family, friends and colleagues to help him bring joy and comfort to children and their caregivers at Palm Beach Children’s Hospital. Now whole families, donors, area businesses and volunteers have helped Little Smiles expand services to over 20 pediatric facilities from St. Lucie to Miami-Dade Counties. The organization also has chapters in North Carolina, Western New York, and Philadelphia doing the same great work.

The Little Smiles of Florida Golf Tournament is not your average golf event. Held on the PGA National Champion Course in Palm Beach Gardens, the four-man scramble kicks off on Friday, May 1, 2020 at 1:00 p.m.  The challenging course keeps the competitive spirit high. Delicious food and drink served throughout the day keeps everyone energized and having fun.

Prize packages are provided to the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place teams at a brief raffle and closing awards dinner held at 6 p.m.
The Little Smiles Golf Tournament attracts up to 150 local golfers, and 50 additional volunteers and other participants from across Palm Beach County. Entry fee for individuals is $250, foursomes are $1,000.

Little Smiles is a volunteer-driven nonprofit organization that helps caring professionals bring joy to children in tough situations. A wide range of caregivers help children of all ages who are facing devastating circumstances including terminal illness, abandonment and other trauma.

These are children who often spend many nights alone in hospitals, shelters and temporary homes, and who can be subject to painful procedures and other emotional strains that they are simply too precious to handle alone.

The professionals working with them understand each child’s unique situation and how to help them heal, but they often lack the resources and financial support to make them smile.
