Global Grins!

11.07.11

Join Joanne Artman Gallery in Laguna Beach on Thursday from 6 to 8 p.m. for an evening of food, wine, music and art benefiting Global Grins, an Orange County based non-profit that delivers toothbrushes to impoverished and disadvantaged people all over the world. It’s improving the health and self-esteem of others who wouldn’t have the means to afford a basic toothbrush—many will be receiving one for the first time. Global Grins was founded by Todd and Joselyn Miller, a Laguna Beach couple who traveled the world, and were moved by smiles they encountered everywhere.

Giving as little as $1 will supply a family of five each with a new toothbrush, and a $100 donation is enough to provide toothbrushes to 500 people living in a village. At the event, you can meet artists James Verbicky and America Martin. Also, enjoy live music, food, and wine. Tickets cost $25 each. Purchase tickets by calling 949.510.5481.

Joanne Artman Gallery is at 326 North Coast Hwy in Laguna Beach.
