 You Are Invited to Celebrate Our Silver Anniversary With Us in the Silver City!


On November 20, 2018 the KEYS Program will be 25 years old!


To celebrate our Silver Anniversary, we will be performing holiday music at the City of Sherrill’s annual Arrival of Santa on December 2nd at the Community Activity Center (CAC)! Our Smile Crew will perform holiday favorites from 6pm until 7:30pm. There will be delicious treats and Santa will be arriving via fire truck to hear all of the children’s holiday wishes.


We will be taping the concert and broadcasting it on our KEYS Kids Network to children’s hospitals across the country. Our recording crew will be set up for members of the community to send inspiring messages of holiday hope and joy to our KEYS kids. (Silly jokes are always welcome too!)


We will be accepting donations of new board games that we will be giving away to our KEYS kids over the holidays too!


What better way to celebrate our Silver Anniversary than by sharing music & smiles with the families in the Silver City! Special thanks to the City of Sherrill, our friends in the Sherrill-Kenwood Volunteer Fire Dept. and our awesome Smile Crew for helping us to  celebrate our anniversary in such a special way!


After’s all about the smiles! ♥

Join us for our annual Holiday Smiles campaign!

Our goal is to deliver music, presents and BIG smiles to 200 KEYS kids (and their siblings) here in Central NY who have been impacted by cancer & serious illnesses this holiday season!


Every $50 raised provides music, presents and joy to one child this holiday season! (Did we mention every donor gets a free Holiday CD?)

There are 3 ways you can get involved this year!

1) You can donate a new board game to KEYS by Dec 15th! 

2) You can simply make an on-line donation here on our website!

3) You can host a Facebook fundraiser to benefit the KEYS Program! 


For every donation of $25 or more you make to the KEYS Program you will receive a free Holiday Smiles CD as a special “thank you” for your kind donation. Songs on the CD are holiday classics that the whole family will love! They make great stocking stuffers or gifts for family, friends and colleagues...and all for a good cause!♥


Thank you...thank you... THANK YOU for all you do!
