Oh the Places You'll Go Virtual Event
Smiles and Beyond
Viewers grabbed their passports for the first annual virtual fundraising event, Oh the Places You’ll Go! IM360 worked with the Smiles and Beyond Event Chair, Beth Wiand of Wiand Dental Lab, and the Smiles team to customize a fun and exciting virtual experience.
Since the theme was, Oh the Places You’ll Go, various travel segments were featured throughout the event in partnership with Discover Live. Viewers were treated to short virtual tours with four tourist destinations from Egypt to England, and also had front row seats to a special musical guest, The Joeys, who entertained the virtual audience from their Phoenix-based studio.
Of course, the heart of the show focused on the Smiles and Beyond mission:
the gift of restored smiles to women and men who have experienced domestic violence or incarceration and are committed to rebuilding their lives. Several of the Smile recipients shared with us their stories of how receiving a new smile had helped them transform their lives. And founder Linda Parker Smith shared her own personal and emotional story about why she made the decision to start Smiles and Beyond.
Carey Pena conducted all of the in-studio interviews and hosted the show from the Inspired Media 360 studios. Auctiontainer Letitia Frye brought her usual magic to the production helping to raise $175,000 and exceeding their goals!
