the evening

Keep Hope Alive is an inspiring and truly unique fundraising event. Mingle with members of the Simply Smiles community during the cocktail hour while you enjoy an open bar and hors d’oeuvres, made possible by our generous sponsors. Then, Bryan Nurnberger, Founder & President of Simply Smiles, will take the stage to share the story of Simply Smiles and how you can support the children in our care.

Wait until you see what we can do together.
