The 1,000 Smiles Foundation is a non-profit organization focused on care of the less fortunate children in Mexico who suffer from lack of dental care and from maxillo-facial deformities such as cleft palate.


Visiting the August 2014 TSF clinic was Coronado Rotarian Ron Vernetti, (on the left), shown with TSF President Dr. Dave Irwin, La Jolla Sunrise Rotarian, and TSF Founder and National City Rotarian, Bob Chalfa. For more photos from the successful clinic, please visit the the Thousand Smiles Group FaceBook page.

img_0444San Diego’s Old Mission Rotary Club and the Francis Parker Interact Club held a fundraiser in May to benefit Thousand Smiles. The event was the 4th annual “So You Think You’ve Got Talent San Diego” held at Francis Parker School in Linda Vista. Guests were treated to a catered dinner by the French Gourmet Restaurant, drinks and dessert made by the Interact Club. A silent auction offered unusual and unique bargains to be bid on… The talent show provided an incredible array of talent from all over California. The show was a great success raising over $20,000. that will help provide dental and surgical services for the underserved children we assist in Baja. Muchisima gracias to our dedicated volunteers at Old Mission Rotary Club and Francis Parker Interact Club.
