$10,000 Donation for Adolescent/Young Adult Clinic

On October 16th, Smiles for Smilow donated $10,000 to Yale New Haven Hospital's up-and-coming teen center.  Along with the check, the group donated approximately $700 in gifts and gift cards for the teenage patients. Look for our plaque on the Donors' Wall at the Children's Hospital Entrance (as pictured).  We would like to thank all who have volunteered and donated.

Madison Goes Gold

In an effort to raise community awareness of childhood cancer throughout the State of Connecticut, Smiles for Smilow has teamed up with Daniel Hand Football, Field Hockey, and Cheer, as well as, Madison Youth Football and Cheer.  A sock fundraiser was created and coordinated through Smiles for Smilow.  Over 400 pairs of socks were sold.  All teams will be wearing black socks with the Childhood Cancer Awareness Gold Ribbon to promote awareness during the month of September and beyond.
