As part of Smilezone Foundation's mission, ErinoakKids Centre for Treatment & Development now boasts a refreshed and welcoming main reception area featuring interactive projection flooring, a newly painted Respite Wing displaying bright murals, and a music-themed Youth Room.

"Smilezone Foundation is honoured to brighten the experience of children receiving services at ErinoakKids," said Adam Graves, Co-Founder of Smilezone Foundation and two-time Stanley Cup champion. "We are grateful for Alessia's support throughout this project. She is an inspiration to the children and families at ErinoakKids, and the new music-themed Smilezone inspired by her will give kids a reason to smile during their therapy and treatment sessions."

"Since the installation of the very first Smilezone at ErinoakKids in August 2013, the impact on our clients and families has been remarkable," says Bridget Fewtrell, President and CEO, ErinoakKids. "Each day, we see the faces of children and youth light up at the sight of Smilezone's playful and transformed spaces. These welcoming environments help make the hard work of therapy and treatment sessions easier, and help children feel settled and secure while in our care."
