The event raises funds for the SouthCoast Mentoring Initiative for Learning, Education, and Service (SMILES), which provides school-based mentoring by pairing youth with a mentor from the community. The goal of the SMILES program is to empower our future leaders by pairing every student who needs a mentor with a caring adult that can educate, inspire, and encourage them to make positive life choices.

We believe in the program because of its proven benefits, including increased graduation rates, GPAs, reading levels, and positive outlooks in mentees. Our goal of raising $100,000 will help us to continue to provide quality educational services to students throughout the area.
