The second annual #HERSMILE Twilight Gala is Saturday, September 10 at the Chateau Room in Pleasant Hill. This fundraising event will begin at 7pm and feature sip and savor wine and beer pairing stations, live music by Bay Area’s own The Cheeseballs , dancing, silent auction, and prize opportunities.

Master of ceremonies, Will Tran of KRON 4 News will lead this special event with all proceeds benefiting the lives of families that have borne the loss of a dependent child or the loss of a parent with dependent children. To date, #HERSMILE has provided support to more than 35 local families and hopes to provide hope, strength, and inspiration to countless more.

“Life for our family over the last two years has been about making it through the storm,” explained #HERSMILE president and founder Dena Betti. “Through building #HERSMILE together, we are helping make our world a better place and I know that this is the gift our daughter, Jenna left for all of us.”

The #HERSMILE mission is to bring hope, strength, and inspiration to those who have experienced a tragedy by designing and presenting learning opportunities in a way that helps individuals develop and improve the power of their mindset and/or by extending monetary gifts.
