Thanks to a recommendation from Casa Grande Cares’ Caren Rausis, the Casa Grande Dispatch featured Spark a Smile last Tuesday! Mr. Bill Coates did a great job of capturing the spirit of Spark a Smile. Please click here to read the article.
Since the story was published, we’ve received some awesome contacts to help Spark a Smile grow and help the community!
Exciting news #1: The American Cancer Society is having their annual Relay for Life and they’re expecting 300 guests, so they asked if we could create “Anything that comes from the heart” to put in their goodie bags. That means we’ll be having TWO Spark a Smile parties this month! We’ll be decorating cute little matchbook mints! Mark your calendar for TUESDAY, October 19th, from 5-7 PM. (Hint hint, to all those people who can’t make our Wednesday events because of choir practice, work, etc.)
Exciting news #2: Thanks to our friendly local bereavement counselor, Monica White, some of the staff at Hospice Compassus are joining us at our party next week, and will be featuring us in their magazine.
And, finally, Exciting news #3: Zonta International (a service club) saw our article and was so excited about what we’re doing with Spark a Smile that they invited me to be their guest speaker next Thursday!!! WOW! Hopefully this will open some new doors for SAS to help even more people in our community. Good stuff.
