On Saturday, July 18, 2015, SMILE on Down Syndrome will be hosting their third annual Trucks & Heroes event from 9am-12pm at Deaconess Gateway Hospital.  The event will be an opportunity to come check out some of the Tri-State area’s biggest and most fun trucks and working vehicles and meet some of our area’s finest police, fire, medical, and military heroes. It is also an opportunity for area businesses and organizations to also showcase their service vehicles including limos, school buses, and our always favorite ice cream truck!  The first hour will be siren-and-lights-free for our friends with sensory issues, including our guests who are on the autism spectrum.

SMILE’s goal is to raise $10,000 with this fundraiser to help support the goals of S.M.I.L.E. on Down Syndrome.  S.M.I.L.E. on Down Syndrome is committed to providing a network of support services to meet the physical, emotional, spiritual, social and educational needs of people of all ages with Down syndrome, their families and communities.

Everyone is welcome! This event is open to the public, and we look forward to seeing young and old alike enjoying the vehicles and meeting our local heroes.
