On Monday, July 22nd, the 1800-Flowers.com® Smile Squad headed to Bay Shore, NY for the Great South Bay YMCA Send a Kid to Camp Annual Golf Classic event. Led by Smile Ambassador Laura Nargentino, the team of 1-800-Flowers.com employees included Natalie Fesefeldt, Marianna Skelton, Alex Treglia, Monica Johnson, Kathy Stalaj and Kara Lange.
A generous group of folks joined together that day at the Southward Ho Country Club Golf and Tennis Event in an effort to help raise money to send underprivileged children to camp. Our Smile Squad then joined forces with the local chapter of the YMCA to extend our gratitude to the attendees. We also greeted those people who made donations at the registration desk by saying “thank you” with delicious Cheryl’s® cookies and bottles of water.
Later in the evening, there was a dinner held for all of the event’s participants where members of our Smile Squad arranged and donated truly original sunflower centerpieces for each table. We then continued to deliver smiles for the hard-working volunteers by presenting the honorees of the event with a beautiful floral bouquet and a 1-800-Baskets® gourmet gift basket.
“It was a beautiful day,” said Team Leader and 1-800-Flowers.com® employee Laura Nargentino. “Everyone involved was so excited about our participation and generosity. Our Smile Squad was happy to be a part of such a great organization to help send kids to camp.”
