Presented by Florida Craniofacial Institute, the “Every Smile Has a Story” Golf Tournament is held in order to increase awareness for craniofacial anomalies and raise funds for children in Tampa that need support relating to cleft lip or palate issues. Funds raised from the tournament have helped children receive care from the St. Joseph’s Children’s Hospital Craniofacial Center, a state-of-the-art, comprehensive, interdisciplinary approach to treating head shape, cleft lip, and craniofacial anomalies in young children.
The generosity of sponsors and golfers at the “Every Smile has a Story” tournaments has been overwhelming. Funds raised through the tournament have helped hundreds of children with facial differences receive necessary care. In the past 2 years, Every Smile Has A Story has donated over $20,000 to St Josephs Children’s Craniofacial Center, and has sponsored care for children overseas. All money raised is used for patients and their families. In 2017, Every Smile Has a Story added a scholarship for a family to attend the annual Children’s Craniofacial Association retreat. Each year, we host fundraising events so that we can purchase needed supplies, provide medically necessary care, and offer support to families. In order to meet this goal, we are asking for sponsorships from local businesses and individuals such as yourself.
