Million Dollar Smile’s Mission

Million Dollar Smiles (MDS) is a non-profit organization that exists to put the smiles on the faces of children navigating life-threatening illnesses.  Their featured program is the MDS Summer Playground Build inspired by the prospect of bringing some normalcy to a child’s life that is experiencing illness or going through cancer treatments. Through a loyal volunteer community that MDS has acquired over the last 10 years, they are able to take on many fundraising initiatives every year for their gift-giving programs.  They include:

  • MDS Halloween Gala attended by over 650 costumed guests and is one of their largest fundraising events
  • Holiday Bear-Hug Campaign
  • Other past fundraising events include Retro Dance Party, Summer Boat Cruises and a Ladies Martini Night, MDS Walk-a-Thon, Yoga in the Park, Mother’s Day Tea
