Riding for Self-Confidence Poker Run

March 9, 2013 sponsored by Sweetwater Harley Davidson

To everyone who attended the amazing event at Sweetwater Harley Davidson for the Joaquin family: A huge thank YOU from the Children’s Smiles team. The day was full of love and inspiration. We are very happy to be a part of such an amazing cause for such a truly beautiful family. We hope that all vendors, participants, and volunteers who attended will join our event next year. This event will be an annual event and our goal for next year is 1,000 riders. We could not have pulled the event off without people like you and we appreciate you. Thank you again!

Shopping for Self-Confidence

Saturday, June 22, 2103 La Jolla Community Center, CA

BouTEAque, Shopping for Self-Confidence Boutique will be held at the La Jolla Community Center. This event will be a Saturday afternoon of English tea, mini tea sandwiches, the finest crumpets, cookies, and shopping for women and their daughters. They will have the chance to enter raffles to win prizes (purses, jewelry, spa packages, designer clothing), and shop at various boutiques set up throughout the venue.  This will be a great opportunity to grab moms looking to purchase thank you gifts for teachers, new summer bags, jewelry, graduation gifts and more!

The Fashion Show: Three local San Diego designers will host our fashion show that will allow them to market and promote their upcoming fall and winter clothing lines. Our participants are invited to stay and watch the engaging show with the opportunity to purchase any of the items that strike their fancy. A percentage of the proceeds from fashion show sales will be donated back to Children’s Smiles to continue their mission of restoring self-confidence in children who have been abused, or through a traumatic event.

Dining for Self-Confidence Gala

Tuesday, August 20, 2013 co-hosted by the Cuvier Club in La Jolla, CA

Dining for Self-Confidence will be the evening of the year as we honor and thank our biggest supporters.  A cocktail hour with mini hors douvres will be followed by a 2 course meal.  Dessert and adult beverages will also be provided by our local food and beverage yearly partners.  There will be a photographer and photo booth for plenty of photo ops.  We will also be hosting a group of youth musicians from Fusion Academy, who along with a well known San Diego based piano player will provide the entertainment and music for the evening.  After all, it’s important that we utilize the talents and creativity of the children we continue to support.  A highly anticipated live and silent auctions as well as an opportunity drawing will take place throughout the evening with hope of raising more than $25,000 for Children’s Smiles.

Biking for Self-Confidence

October 5, 2013 – Mount Soledad, La Jolla, CA

Our 2nd Annual Biking for Self-Confidence, co-hosted with NextLevel Internet will take place again at La Jolla Coves.  The amazing ride down Mount Soledad in La Jolla was nothing shy of scenic this past 2012 year and we are excited to do it again! Riders will enjoy the famous limo ride up to the top of Mount Soledad, have the chance for breathtaking photos and pick up a bike to ride down La Jolla Scenic Drive.  After the ride, a celebratory lunch will be provided and guests will have a chance to enjoy live music, sponsor giveaways, raffle prizes and so much more! Last year Children’s Smiles made huge strides by helping restore the self-confidence of 10 homeless men.  They were so thrilled to be a part of the ride and the opportunity to interact with people.
