Smiles Charity utilizes a unique fundraising concept of bringing an entire community together for a concert and family festival. Generous local and corporate businesses sponsor the annual concert event held over Memorial Day weekend in McKinney, TX. Thousands attend the charity concert donating even more money and raising even more awareness for the designated beneficiary. 100% of the profits from the annual event are then donated to build the designated home.
Smiles Charity is a 501c(3)non-profit organization founded to benefit charitable organizations that build homes for deserving families. The Volunteers are needed to help with the Concert Event held on Memorial Day weekend annually. In 2001, she began hosting an annual Smiles Charity party to benefit the local chapter of Habitat for Humanity. In 2008, Dr. Buchanan took her Smiles Charity project to the next level by organizing a free outdoor concert open to the public. 2017 will be our 10th year and 12th home! This year we will be remodeling the home of a 100% disabled veteran to make his home handicap accessible.
