Mick Rodgers, owner of Outback Survival Gear, is a sponsor of Dominique’s Smiles. He, along with his family, designed and gifted the 8” plush Little Dominique’s that every child visited receives.

For the first time he was able to go with Dominique to personally hand each child this gift and witness the joy it brought! The morning of his visit, he wrote messages on every Little Dominique he would be handing out. The smiles tell it all!

Making a Special Surprise Visit

Heather wanted to surprise her 95 yr old Granny who is on hospice care. Everyone was disappointed when we arrived because they could not wake her.

All of a sudden she woke up and was so surprised!

The Mill of Red Lion is one of Dominique’s Smiles sponsors and it was a pleasure being asked to attend the Street Fair at their booth.

We had such a crowd around Dominique that I was unable to take photos.
Everyone else took photos! We did have a fun time.

Gretel, my daughter, and Connor, my 5-year-old grandson, were visiting from CA. Gretel took photos while Connor gave every member Dominique’s card and autograph. It was such fun to be able to share with him how Dominique brings smiles on his visits!

Everyone had so many good questions about Dominique that we just stood up front with a microphone
and answered questions along with telling a few short funny stories. Dominique was still getting hugs as we left!
