It Really Was a Perfect Weekend!

Tue, Aug 27th, 2019

Brockport Smiles recently participated in one of our favorite annual events, the Annual Art Festival organized by BISCO. We love having a good time almost as much as we love giving back and this year we did both!

Always held the second weekend in August, this year marks 25 years of celebrating art and the community! To mark the 25th anniversary, Main Street was closed to cars and opened to magicians, street performers and live music on both Saturday and Sunday. Local vendors and artists displayed their goods, and there was lots of delicious street food! It’s easy to see why this event is one of our faves but, how does it affect the community?

BISCO is a not-for-profit organization made up of community members and local organizations that have the same goal. Formed by a collaborative group of local organizations including Brockport Kiwanis, Lions, Rotary, Fire Department, and Elks, BISCO has a primary focus based securely on our community’s youth. Their primary focus is supporting projects that benefit Western Monroe County kids. Brockport Smiles is proud to work with folks that share our interest in working toward the betterment of the community.

Dedicated to the Duck

One of the highlights of this annual event is Sunday’s Duck Derby! While these aren’t real ducks, they sure do race! Participants pay to have a rubber duck tossed in the canal where the ducks race and prizes are awarded to those with the fastest ducks. Brockport Smiles loves this fun way to give to our community, and this year, we were the proud sponsor of the second duck to cross the finish line! A whopping $750 prize!

Beyond supporting the Duck Derby, we supported some smiles! Our Saturday booth had a fantastic wheel of prices including free teeth whitening! A $250 value! On a sunny, 75 degree day, we gave back to the community we love and promoted happy healthy smiles. It really was a perfect weekend.
