November 29, 2010 – Members of BHF and BBRA have worked together since the the fall of 2007 in planning the 2nd Annual Celebration of Smiles. “We wanted to make SMILES an annual ride so we had to execute the 2nd annual event earlier to get the time slot of first quarter of each year,” said Ron Catronio, Co-Founder of BBRCF.

The team decided to select March 8, 2009 to present our ride. Each year SMILES will grow and we are poised to have a great time of year with cooler weather.

We have partnered with Al Lamberti and the Broward Sheriff’s office to provide the escort for the the ride. This year we have a 52-mile ride planned. Sgt. Pete Geary of BSO has planned a fabulous ride that leaves Chris Evert Children’s Hospital and heads east to west Broward County. The ride will end at Wetz Pub in Sunrise with a fabulous party following what we expect to be one of the all-time best escorted rides ever in our area!
