Here’s something worth smiling about. Future Smiles, a local nonprofit that provides critical dental preventive and restorative services to at-risk students in the Clark County School District, is partnering with gourmet wellness restaurant Flower Child for a healthy fundraiser called “Smile with Flower Child” on Nov. 15.
From 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., 20 percent of all sales generated by guests who mention Future Smiles when ordering during the day-long event at Flower Child, 1007 S. Rampart Blvd., will be donated to Future Smiles to help the organization continue its goal of serving students in the community who lack resources to dental care.
The fundraiser is part of an ongoing effort to ensure at-risk students in CCSD receive quality dental care and will aid Future Smiles in its goal to hire additional staff to meet the needs of the students they serve. Items on the Flower Child menu will have a dental twist for the day. Patrons can order The Smile Hummus, Teethy Tomato Toast, Chewy Mac & Cheese, and more.
“We’re thrilled to have the support of Flower Child as we work to provide care to students and provide additional resources for them,” said Terri Chandler, Future Smiles founder and ED. “This event is one of many ways we’re partnering with organizations across the community to spread the word about providing dental care to kids who may otherwise not receive care. The support thus far has been astounding. We’re excited for the future of our organization.”
Since its 2009 inception, Future Smiles has provided dental services at low or no cost to more than 100,000 at-risk children in Southern Nevada. No children are turned away, even if they lack insurance.
