"We just want people to get together and celebrate giving Tuesday and Gift A Smile and we're just going to open up the Pavilion and have people come in and we'll have live music going on and some appetizers being served and have a cash bar open, and just a time for the community to get together, not only for those items but just in general. We've been very blessed down here not only the last few years but our whole existence here at the park that we rely on donations from the community and just feel very blessed. We want to celebrate the fact that the community is behind us and kind of want to give back by doing this event."

Plumb says the intent of the “Gift A Smile” program is to give less fortunate children a chance to have some fun at Arnolds Park as well...Gift A Smile02 

"People can donate. This year the amount is $25 and for every $25 that's donated to that Gift A Smile program we will give a child in need a pass to the amusement park next summer."

The passes will be given to Upper Des Moines Opportunity which will then distribute them within their 10 county service area.

Plumb adds there's an easy way you can donate if for whatever reason you can't attend Tuesday evening's event...Gift A Smile03 

"Go right on Arnolds Park-dot-com and go to our tickets page and there's a line there where they can purchase as many as they'd like right there on the website. The other thing they can also do, they can text smile to 243725 and that will take them into a web portal on their phone where they can donate passes there, also."

In addition to appetizers and a cash bar, Tuesday evening's “Gift a Smile” party will also feature live music by Boon and Lambert.
