It is with great sadness that we inform you of the passing of Burt Berry on July 18, 2013. Burt was an Alliance for Smiles Board Member and one of the Founders of AfS. Since the very beginning days of AfS Burt had been a huge supporter. At the January Gala, he was the first recipient of the John Uth Memorial Award for Significant Financial Support of Alliance for Smiles. Because of his generosity literally hundreds of children have been able to receive life-changing cleft lip and palate surgery. The family asks that in lieu of flowers, contributions be made to Alliance for Smiles. Burt will be missed.
