At South Surrey Smiles, we love the community that we are a part of. It is very important to us as a local business to give back to the people who have helped us get where we are today.
Putting on events for our patients and friends is one small way that we can show our appreciation for all the support we’ve received from the community over the years. It’s an added bonus when we can raise money for charities and organizations that we believe in, too.
This year for a fun Halloween event, we put on our 1st Annual Halloween Drive In Movie. Our goal was to raise money for the Sunnyside Elementary Parents Advisory Council, and the generosity from the community was overwhelming. We raised $7,672.87 in just one night!
The Drive-In took place in White Rock/South Surrey at Semiahmoo Park and we screened two movies — Monsters Inc. for the early show and the classic and hilarious Hocus Pocus for the later show.
The event was well received from everyone who attended. Who doesn’t love an old fashioned drive-in? We had great feedback that it was a unique and fun experience that the whole family enjoyed. In addition, we received a very special message from one grateful parent, Chad Farquharson.
This what he had to say:
We couldn’t be happier that our efforts are going toward supporting young children like Grayson and all the other students at Sunnyside Elementary. We believe that education is the greatest gift we can give to children and we are grateful to be able to help support this wonderful school.
Halloween is a fun time for our office. This year our team dressed up as witches (the friendly kind, of course), and we had a lot of great entries for our Pumpkin Carving contest. But most of all, it was being able to lend a hand to a local school that brought the biggest smiles to our face.
Thank you to everyone who came out and participated. We can hardly wait until next year to do it again!
