Every holiday season, Todd Slingerland, the CEO of Capital Financial Planning, takes 50 people from around the Capital Region to see the "Radio City Christmas Spectacular" on a special “Smile Bus.”
The riders are people who have had a difficult year due to illness, bereavement, economic hardship, bullying, family dynamics, or other issues.
Riders nominated by employees, clients, past participants, not-for-profit organizations and other people in the community.
Aboard the bus, riders sing carols, play games, enjoy snacks, and just have a good time.
This year, Slingerland and the folks at Capital Financial Planning are taking their 500th rider on the special trip to New York City.
