The children’s charity that Ryan Palmer established in his hometown of Amarillo is adding the Metroplex to its mission.
It also has a new name: the Brighter Smiles Initiative. The mission is to provide dental work to deserving children whose family lacks the financial means.
“We’ve done around 26 kids in the area back where I grew up,” said Palmer, a Colleyville resident who’s playing in this week’s AT&T Byron Nelson Championship.
“These are kids who don’t have the self-esteem to look themselves in the mirror, or have the confidence to go to school and be happy,” Palmer said. “And we’re able to provide these kids with the necessary dental work.”
