Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) May 26, 2012
Aurora Spa and Salon Sa Bel would like to extend a very heartfelt thank you to everyone who participated in the success of Reason To Smile! With your support, we raised over $33,000 for Smile Network International.
Smile Network International is a non-profit humanitarian organization which provides the gift of smiles free of charge to children born with facial deformities. For as little as $500 per child, Smile Network International is able to restore joy and dignity to a child in the space of 45 minutes. As a result of the collective efforts of the guests and businesses supporting the event, 66 children receive a new lease on life and a reason to smile.
