Announcing the iPad Winner

Congratulations to The Graves family of Lawrence, KS for winning the Facebook/Twitter iPad2 drawing. After it was (finally) delivered they came by the office today to pick it up. A picture of the happy winners is above!

The family has been coming to Growing Smiles since 2008 and they plan to let everyone in the family (not just the kids!) use the iPad2. They plan to use it to write stories, play games and use all of those cool apps. When told they won, their first reaction was "Is this real?" Their favorite part about coming to Growing Smiles is the "prizes, movies and televisions at each chair and the games" in the waiting room.

Thanks again to all who participated and made this such a fun experience!
