"Keep Hope Alive" in Middlebury was a huge success. A total of over $48,000 was raised to fund four Simply Smiles projects. These include eradicating hook worm for 3,000 people in Oaxaca, Mexico, buying the land for a children's home in Oaxaca, growing healthy food on the reservation in South Dakota and preventing youth suicide on the reservation in La Plant South Dakota. I have uploaded some photos taken at the fundraiser.
"Keep Hope Alive" is a fundraiser to benefit the work of Simply Smiles. If you live in the Connecticut area there is sure to be one near you! Join us at any of our three events and help Simply Smiles to provide bright futures for impoverished children in Mexico and on the Cheyenne River Reservation in South Dakota. The evenings feature free admittance, cocktails, hors d'oeuvres, special music by singer/songwriter Kristen Graves, a presentation of Simply Smiles programs by founder Bryan Nurnberger (born and raised in Naugatuck,) and the opportunity to support children in need. Everyone is welcome.
Singer/songwriter, Kristen Graves, channels her passion for Simply Smiles into her music. Inspired by single mothers living in a garbage dump, by children living on an Indian Reservation, and by our supporters, she performs what she feels and experiences.
Kristen’s song, “Keep Hope Alive” inspired our event. And she will be with us at all three fundraisers this year to share with you a live performance. But if you can’t wait, you can listen to and download her song right here!
