Camp Smile-A-Mile is Alabama’s premier program for children with cancer. Their mission is to provide year-round unforgettable recreational and engaging educational opportunities for young cancer patients and their families, as well as young adult cancer survivors from Alabama, at no cost to the families. They strive to provide these amazing families with avenues for fellowship, to help them cope with the disease and to prepare them for life after cancer.
The 2016 Camp Smile-A-Mile Funky Monkey event was held on July 29 at Regions Field. There was an extensive and exciting silent auction that included Alabama and Auburn football-related packages, breathtaking jewelry and everything in between. Drinks and delicious hors d’oeuvres were enjoyed in the gorgeous ballroom and covered pavilion that overlooks Regions Field. Attendees ate, drank, snapped pictures and enjoyed a fun night benefitting a cause close to everyone’s heart. With ongoing slideshows of the young children and families that Camp Smile-A-Mile helps playing throughout the evening, one could not forget the reason they were celebrating, and it only added to the beauty of the event. We cannot wait to attend another gorgeous, elegant, meaningful and unforgettable Funky Monkey in 2017!
