TGI Sponsors Broward Children’s Center Miles for Smiles Fundraiser
Posted January 2019
Broward Children’s Center, in collaboration with several community partners, hosted its 15th Annual Miles for Smiles fundraiser, bringing in over $100,000 for the medical, educational, recreational, and therapeutic services provided to 1,200 infants, children, young adults, and families with special needs.
“It was such a pleasure to see our residents, staff, board members, parents, and members of our community come together for our 15th Annual event,” said CEO Marjorie Evans. “Though fundraising is the end result, seeing our community and longtime supporters engage with our children was priceless.”
Development and Marketing Manager, Myrna Miott said, “We are so grateful to be surrounded by a tremendous circle of loving supporters who care deeply for our brave children.”
Miles for Smiles provides a once a year opportunity to nurture and protect some of the most medically fragile children in the nation by funding the highly-specialized medical care Broward Children’s Center delivers. This care saves lives and improves the health and happiness of thousands of children. For 40 years, Broward Children’s Center has been providing nonprofit education, medical, and residential services to infants, children, and young adults who are at risk or have special needs. The private nonprofit accomplishes this through community support.
