Smiles Charity announces that the homes built with proceeds from its 2011 outdoor concert and family festival are complete. A Block party will be held Saturday May 5th from 11 a.m to 6 p.m. at 1613 Covered Bridge Court, Gunter, TX 75078 in The Bridges of Preston Crossings subdivision. The recipients who will be honored and given the keys to their new homes will be Sgt. Alan Hornaday, Sgt. Levi Wilson, and Sgt. Robert Aiken. Food, live music, and activities are planned to celebrate the occasion.
The annual Smiles Charity Concert was held over Memorial Day Weekend in 2011 featuring Uncle Kracker. The event drew 15,000 fans and raised $75,000 to go towards the three homes being dedicated. The construction of the homes was managed by Operation Finally Home.
Smiles Charity will proudly partner with Operation Finally Home again in 2012 to construct two more homes for America’s war wounded heroes. The 2012 Smiles Charity Concert and Festival will again be held over Memorial Day Weekend on Sunday May 27th 5:00-10:00 pm at the Adriatica outdoor concert venue featuring Grammy Nominee David Nail.
