Thank you for the SMILES!
We want to send along a BIG thank you to everyone who tuned-in to the KEYS Program's "Summer Smiles" virtual concerts...all 19,541 of you! Our musicians were AMAZING...our sponsors were SO kind...and our viewers were so wonderful sharing messages of hope, love, joy and smiles at each concert! Darn COVID kept us from being able to do our backyard concerts and Smile Experience's in person this year, but thanks to all of YOU, we were able to keep the love, support and SMILES going...especially when our KEYS kiddos need them the most! Words cannot full express our gratitude and appreciation enough....simply... YOU ROCK!
