Township resident Chris Bohinski is “Boh the Smile Guy.”
To honor Chris Bohinski’s outstanding accomplishment of his smile mission, NYC Smile 4 Me, Saturday, Oct. 21 will be declared “Smile Day in Wilkes-Barre Twp.”
As his official proclamation from Mayor Carl Kuren states, “(Bohinski’s) smile mission aims to spread happiness, positivity, and joy by sharing the things that make folks smile.” Bohinski is a resident of Wilkes-Barre Twp. and is thrilled to be orchestrating such an event for the Wyoming Valley. “Smile Day will be absolutely free to all residents and non-residents of Wilkes-Barre Twp., which highlights the sentiment that all smiles are free,” Bohinski recently said when we chatted about the senior citizen bingo folks’ involvement with Smile Day.
“Smile Day is going to include free bingo, free food, fun prizes, and a raffle with profits going to the fire and police departments,” and he went on to include, “Smile Day will also include many children’s activities and games, where all children will be going home with lots of prizes and goodies.” Local entertainers Tommy Gill and Mike Naperkowski are slated to perform as well.
Chris, the son of Mrs. Barbara Bohinski and the late Dr. Stanley T. Bohinski, enjoys making people happy and aims to show basic human kindness to everyone he meets. After graduating with distinct honors from Wheeling Jesuit University, Chris lived in New York City where he worked in the entertainment industry. Along with appearances on NBC’s “The Today Show” and a feature story in The New York Post, one of Chris’s biggest accomplishments has been the growth of his #SmileStory smile mission. Bohinski, also known as “Boh the Smile Guy,” is a frequent interviewer on the red carpet where he asks well-known personalities the 4-word question, “What Makes You Smile?”
Come and join Chris, Mayor Carl Kuren, the township police and fire departments for the First Annual Smile Day on Saturday, Oct. 21, at the township fire hall, 150 Watson St., from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. It is free and everyone is welcome!
