Norwalk's Keep Hope Alive Fundraiser: April 28

Norwalk, CT -- Simply Smiles, a Connecticut-based charity organization, is hosting its annual “Keep Hope Alive” fundraising event on Friday, April 28th at the Stepping Stones Museum in Norwalk, Connecticut.  

The fundraiser will honor Westport couple Karen and Bob Jones for their continued dedication to Simply Smiles.

The event will begin at 7:00 PM with a cocktail hour with complimentary drinks and hors d’oeuvres. At 8:00, Bryan Nurnberger, founder of Simply Smiles, will briefly outline some of the organization’s current youth and community development initiatives, including efforts to educate Native youth in South Dakota and to eradicate parasitic infection in the mountains of Mexico. 

Guests at the event will have the opportunity to donate any amount to support Simply Smiles projects. There is no cost to attend, and the event is open to all. Simply Smiles requests that guests RSVP for Keep Hope Alive at
