BUILD A HOME, CREATE A SMILE

Smiles Charity was founded by Dr. Jennifer Buchanan to bring the community together for a free family concert and festival to change the world one home, one family at a time. Smiles Charity is a 501c(3) non-profit organization that raises funds to build homes for deserving families. She started with a “Smiles” skating party for her patients and transformed the event into an outdoor concert.  Smiles Charity has become a McKinney tradition attracting 20,000 fans. The results are tangible.  Since 2008, 8 homes have been built. 2016 will be the 11th annual Smiles Charity Concert and Family Festival.  The 9th home will be built in 2014 to benefit a wounded military hero.
