What is Make ‘m Smile?
Make ‘m Smile is a community festival that celebrates kids with special needs (VIP kids) and their families and features a Buddy Stroll where VIP families are "buddied up" with people from around the community for a stroll around Lake Eola. Enjoy free food, entertainment, prizes, and a chance to visit exhibitors that service the special needs community.
This event is FREE of charge and happens RAIN OR SHINE!
(Based on last year’s experience of having to reschedule due to the threat of Tropical Storm Barry, we’re aware that the promise of “Rain or Shine” may be have to amended. :) Rest assured we will always act in the safest manner possible for our VIP kids and families. If there is a threat of dangerous weather, we will communicate our “Plan B” to you. If it is drizzling, we will enjoy the day as planned!)
Last year we had a blast being a buddy to a special boy we were paired up with. I have already registered the boys and I to be a buddy again this year and we are all looking forward to it.
