Who's going on a Getaway???

Congratulations to EJ & Elizabeth Horricks from Carson City, they have won the grand prize which includes a trip to the Celebrate your Marriage Retreat on Mackinaw Island this October.

Smile staff selected 20 touching stories from all of the nominations and then the winner was randomly selected from the finalists using our tech teams random number generator :-)

Their friend Ruth nominated them and told us, "They both have given so much to others through the years and this year during which EJ has been battling through the Stage 4 cancer they have both been so drained physically. God has been answering prayers and the surgery and chemo have been successful, and now they have the hope of him being able to regain his strength and have a normal life for awhile again. The deserve this get away time and renewal of their bond together would be so good for them both. Please consider giving them this special get away that will help renew them physically, spiritually and mentally besides adding some fun and laughter back into their lives."
