Celebrating the American Spirit-Smiles Charity Concert and Festival

Blue sunny skies accompanied by the roar of  WWII era airplanes flying overhead and the contagious laughter of children, were just a few of the day’s treats that made the 2011 Smiles Charity Concert and Festival in McKinney, TX an event celebrating the American spirit. With thousands in attendance over the Memorial Day weekend, this annual charity concert not only brings community together, it pays homage to our armed services and veterans.

Due to generous local and corporate businesses sponsors, the day was filled with family fun, local food and drinks, outstanding entertainment, and ooh – aah fireworks! From Hollie Cavanaugh’s moving performance of the National Anthem (yes she was a contestant on American Idol), to McKinney’s Mayor Brian Loughmiller riding a mechanical bull and Uncle Kracker’s get on your feet and dance performance, the event did not disappoint.

The greatest joy provided by Smiles Charity Concert and Operation Finally Home is that 100% of the profits from this annual event are then donated to build homes for disabled veterans and widows of fallen soldiers. This year’s recipients are Levi Wilson and Alan Hornaday. Bluegreen Communities is proud to be involved in this gifting and honoring of our American soldiers. They deserve our sincerest thanks.
