Dear Little Smiles Supporter,

We wanted to inform you that we are postponing the upcoming Little Smiles Stars Ball on April 4th, 2020. With the recent COVID-19 pandemic, we need to take the proper precautions to protect the amazing children we support and our Little Smiles community as a whole.  Our Committee is working to quickly secure a future venue/date for the event.

We will communicate final details as soon as we have them.  All tickets and sponsorships will be fully honored for the rescheduled event.
If you are unable to attend or would like your donation refunded, please send an email to

While the Stars Ball is our annual signature fundraising event, we believe we are taking the appropriate action. Please know, with confidence, that we continue to support the children and their caregivers throughout the year. Our mission will carry on. We deeply appreciate your continued support, apologize for any inconvenience, and hope you all stay safe and healthy.

Please reach out to us with any questions or concerns.

The Little Smiles Board






Helping kids in local hospitals, hospices and shelters smile again.






Thank you for your support!

Our mission is to help heal hearts

Little Smiles is a volunteer driven, non-profit 501(c)3 children’s charity. Our mission is to help heal hearts and create little smiles by providing gifts and fun activities to children impacted by serious illness, homelessness or tragedy. With the guidance of local professionals such as doctors, nurses, child life specialists and social workers, we strive to help kids escape their unfortunate circumstances, even if only for a short period of time.

Here is how we do it:

Nurses and social workers submit requests to Little Smiles on behalf of kids in their care.

Our signature “Junk Food Runs” are designed to deliver snacks and special treats to kids who are spending all of their time in a hospital for pediatrics facility.

We host special events with partners to cultivate a supportive environment for families and healthcare workers.

Our Sponsors

Our programs and our smiles would not happen without our sponsors.  Little Smiles is so grateful to the local companies and individuals that invest in our families and kids.  A special thanks to One Main Financial for being our first Monte Carlo Night Sponsor for 2017!
