Meet Sofia

Congratulations to Sofia in Stoney Creek! Sofia hosted a bubly Smile Stand on July 9th and raised an amazing $3,338.00! Sofia also had special guests drop by her bubly Smile Stand including teachers from her elementary school and Ned Kuruc, Federal Candidate Hamilton East, Neil Lumsden, MPP Hamilton East and Ward 1 Lincoln Councillor Jason Trombetta.

Take a look at what Sofia’s dad shared about her bubly Smile Stand:

“Proud Dad moment alert!

So proud of my little girl Sofia, for hosting a bubly Smile Stand. It was a big success!! She also sold freezies, popcorn and loot bags. Thank you to Autism Speaks Canada and bubly for this opportunity.

We were so happy and blessed to see family, friends, and neighbours come visit us. All proceeds raised will go to Autism Speaks Canada. Thank you to everyone who supported and donated. Truly a humbling experience.”
