One smile at a time

Millions of children in developing countries are in desperate need of cleft lip and palate surgery. The families of these children — often living on less than $1 dollar a day — are too poor to ever afford to pay for surgery. Quincy businesswoman Caron Chance of Back Door Catering is following a long family tradition as a donor to Smile Train, a national organization focused only on a single problem: cleft lip and palate. Now through the holiday season, Caron will donate a portion of her catering proceeds to this charity.

In tune with the times, she has revamped her menu selections and pricing structure to make holiday parties affordable for most any type of gathering. Back Door Catering is located in Quincy inside the Mineral Building at the Plumas Sierra County Fairgrounds.
