“The folks who drive the Phila Little Smiles charity are amazing, stated Craig Camacho, Keenan Auto Body’s Marketing Director. “They all have full time jobs and careers but somehow find the time to bring smiles to the faces of children throughout Philadelphia. The charity should be called Huge Smiles because that is really what the kids have after being treated to their own requests”.
Keenan has raised over $255,000 in the last 14 years for charities such as Big Brothers Big Sisters, Camp Make A Dream Foundation, Delaware County Children and Youth Services, The Papa Pandeli Fund, the Make A Wish Foundation, The Philadelphia Ronald McDonald House, Russella Educational Fund and Philadelphia Little Smiles, the same charity that was the benefactor last year.
“Without the support of our industry partners events like these would not be possible” stated Camacho. “I want to personally and sincerely thank everyone that played a part in this year’s outing. For the golfers; it was a beautiful day with temperatures in the high 70’s and no humidity. For our sponsors; their consistent loyalty by generously supporting our charities is incredible even in an uncertain economy.
Founded in 1952 by Joseph T. Keenan and acquired by his son Donald in 1979, the family owned collision centers are some of the largest of their kind in the Northeast region of the country. Keenan offers its customers the highest quality workmanship at no more then industry standard rates.
Little Smiles Philadelphia was started by a relative and a close friend of Paul Donohue, the founder of Little Smiles Florida. It is with great passion that in accordance with the Little Smiles mission statement, Little Smiles Philadelphia has assisted and continues to assist thousands of children in the City of Philadelphia and surrounding areas. Their dedicated board of directors and volunteers work unselfishly day in and day out to provide "little smiles" for the children who need it most in Philadelphia!
