Kayla's Smile

Meg's Smile Foundation had the pleasure of doing a smile for Kayla Duquette, a girl from Fuquay Varina, NC who is battling a brain tumor. She and her family were picked up in style by Cowboy Limousine and Kayla was presented with new jewelry and she was able to get a brand new dress for the big event. They all went to dinner at The Mellow Mushroom, and then on to see Les Miserable.

We would like to thank Mellow Mushroom in Raleigh, Luluavenue, Duke Energy Center and the production company of Les Miserable, as well as all of our Meg's Smile Foundation supporters for making this such a beautiful and memorable evening for Kayla and her family!
