2019 Smile Fest: August 29 @ Brainerd Industrial Center

Thank you to everyone who joined us for the first annual Smile Fest!

Smile Fest was a great success with well over 1,000 attendees. Entertainment was provided by Seth Doud and the Grammy Award winning Okee Dokee Brothers. In addition to the free meal, there was additional food and merchandise available for purchase as well as a bouncy house, face painting, prizes and more!

Cuyuna Regional Medical Center provided Mental Health Professionals on site to answer questions and provide information on suicide prevention and mental health.

We witnessed lots of smiles, high fives, and community spirit – which was our ultimate goal!
