The Adam Davis Galleher Memorial Fund began in January of 2013 after the sudden passing of a loving son, brother, & friend who touched many lives in his 26 years on this Earth. Honoring Adam's life by helping others was at times, the only lighthouse on a very stormy sea of grief. Adam's infectious smile and laughter is forever imprinted on our hearts, and as such, SmileOn ADG was proudly born. Now we press onward to show others the importance of memorialization, the profound positive impact of helping others, and to remind the world that love really does live forever.
Six years later, SmileOn ADG has awarded over $72,000 in grants, scholarships, and charitable gifts in areas that Adam was passionate about. The initial focus of the memorial fund was to enhance music education in Watauga County by purchasing new instruments for the Watauga High School Marching Band, whom Adam was a proud member of. Thanks to overwhelming support from those who loved Adam, we have been able to expand our scope to a wide range of educational and charitable endeavors in the High Country, including Vocational Skills & Scouting. (Watauga, Ashe, & Avery counties).
