The Big Birthday Party - recap and thank yous!

On Sunday, we held our annual celebration, and this year it was a Big Birthday Party to celebrate our 10 years as a registered charity.

And wow - what a celebration!

There were craft areas, a raffle, a magic show, musical performances (including a fantastic rendition of Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas is You” by the Sunshine & Smiles karaoke group), a delicious buffet and a fundraiser certificate presentation. We also took a moment to remember all of the Sunshine & Smiles children who are sadly no longer with us. 

We shared a video documenting 10 years of Sunshine & Smiles - you can watch it here: 

We had so much fun and we have quite a few thank yous to share to the people and businesses that make this party so wonderful!

So, we’d like to give a big Sunshine & Smiles THANK YOU to…
