Joni Edelbrock | Founder & Co-President

Boyd Edelbrock | Founder

Kaci’s parents, Boyd and Joni Edelbrock, founded Big Heart Big Smile Foundation.  Along with their two boys (Kaci’s older brothers) Lane and Kody, they are committed to a journey of giving back and bringing smiles to kids and families in need.  Kaci had a contagious smile and joy for life.  She was born to move mountains and make a difference.  Boyd, Joni, Lane, and Kody want to keep Kaci’s memory alive through helping others. 

Angie Garner | Co-President

Angie was blessed to be Kaci’s aunt. Angie grew up in Monroe and is excited to give back to this amazing community. She has worked with kids for over 30 years and feels so honored to be a part of such an amazing foundation that will bring smiles, laughter and joy to kids and their families. With Kaci’s strong spirit leading the way, she can only imagine what incredible things will happen and how much happiness this foundation will create.

Matthew Campbell | Co-Vice President

Matt’s oldest son Connor is a friend/teammate/buddy of Kody’s, playing baseball, basketball, and football together over the years. Wherever Kody went, Kaci was sure to be there, supporting her big brother and his friends and showing she could hold her own among the big boys. She was a little sister to them all!

In a very short time, BHBS has made a tremendous difference in the community. From the annual scholarship to a graduating senior to supplying thousands of toys to kids who might not have them otherwise, giving hundreds of backpacks full of school supplies to kids in need and of course distributing so many stuffed animals to comfort children in crisis. Kaci’s spirit is alive in all BHBS does. BHBS hopes to have a lasting impact in the Monroe community for years to come!

Nanette Kuala | Co-Vice President

Nanette Kuala’s family and the Edelbrock family have been connected for over 12 years, since their kids started playing sports and going to school together. Kaci became like a little sister to the Kuala kids as their families traveled and socialized over the years.  Being a member of Big Heart Big Smile foundation has given Nanette the opportunity to bring Kaci’s contagiously awesome spirit to so many kids in need in our community. 

 

Kim Bublitz | Treasurer

The Bublitz family, Clint, Kim & Trent, grew close to Kaci and the Edelbrock family by spending endless hours watching youth sports. Kim is so excited to be part of the Big Heart Big Smile Foundation and is devoted to keep Kaci’s memory alive by bringing fun to the youth of Monroe & Snohomish County. She believes is building a stronger sense of community through events and activities that benefit children and their families – all in the name of a very special little girl who deeply touched so many hearts.
