David Martin, Blue Springs, was one of 24 SmilesLEAGUE raffle winners, winning a St. Louis Cardinal package that included four tickets to the game and a Albert Pujols autographed baseball. He also had the opportunity to be part of an on-field, pre-game ceremony, courtesy of Delta Dental and the St. Louis Cardinals.

The fundraising initiative raised almost $35,000 to benefit the work of Cardinals Care, the Delta Dental Health Theatre, Give Kids A Smile, the Pujols Family Foundation and the St. Louis County Library Foundation. Delta Dental presented a check to representatives of the five charities at a recent St. Louis Cardinals game alongside the 24 raffle winners who were rewarded with a unique Cardinals prize package for “pitching in” for healthy smiles.
