Beneficiaries

Thanks to your gifts through the Tiny Tim Holiday Fantasy event, along with support from thousands of individuals, companies and organizations, the B.E. Smith Family Center opened in April 2019. This new facility has greatly expanded educational and therapeutic offerings for children in a state-of-the-art facility on the AdventHealth Shawnee Mission campus located at I-35 and 75th St. 

Designed to provide a modern learning environment for children of all ability levels, the Center fosters collaboration and connection between children, families and staff, and promotes understanding and inclusion of children with special needs.

The B.E. Smith Family Center features include indoor and outdoor inclusive playgrounds, two aquatic therapy pools, and spacious classrooms and therapy rooms filled with natural light. Multiple classrooms in the Britain Development wing feature the Variety KC Compass system, which allows children with mobility difficulties the opportunity to interact with peers while standing and walking with support from a harness.

Meet a few of the families whose lives are forever changed by their experiences at the B.E. Smith Family Center:

Committee Chairs

AdventHealth Foundation Shawnee Mission is pleased to announce that LD Bernabe and Stacy Porto have agreed to serve as Chairs for the 2020 Tiny Tim Holiday Fantasy. Proceeds from this event benefit children and families served at the B.E. Smith Family Center. LD and Stacy live in Leawood, KS, with their three children, Frances Marianna (Fifi), Lawrence Douglas III (Louie), and Anthony Porto (Tony). Their son, Louie, age 3, was diagnosed with epilepsy when he was 13 months old. For months, Louie was having upwards of 30 seizures a day and medications didn’t provide relief. Louie began receiving therapy at the B.E. Smith Family Center in the Britain Development program at 16 months old and with the help of his therapists and teacher, he has begun reaching milestones. Porto is an attorney and former White House staffer. LD was born in New Jersey, and graduated from Rockhurst University. Together they manage Selling KC – Stacy Porto Real Estate and are one of the top real estate teams in the city. The Foundation is grateful for their leadership and look forward to enjoying the Tiny Tim Holiday Fantasy Virtual Vintage Experience with you on Sunday, November 1, 2020.
