“The House of Blues Foundation Room should be commended for its support of local non-profit organizations like Smiles. The venue was the perfect intimate setting for us to share Smiles’ mission with attendees,” said Dr. Olya Banchik, Smiles founder and executive director. Attendees included breast cancer patients, survivors and members of the Las Vegas medical and business communities.
“As the first non-profit to address breast cancer patients’ oral health complications that results from cancer treatment, we are receiving requests for help from women coast to coast,” explains Dr. Banchik. “Because of wonderful partners like House of Blues Foundation Room, expanding Smiles’ reach nationwide is something we can now consider.”
