Noteworthy New Yorkers: Operation Smile
Phyllis Diller said, “That a smile is a curve that sets everything straight.” The heartbreaking truth is that every three minutes, a child is born with a cleft and that one in ten will die before their first birthday. For those children who do live, the condition leaves them unable to eat, speak, socialize or smile and as a result, they feel compelled to hide their faces because of this tragic deformity.
However, Operation Smile is an international children’s medical charity committed to saving lives and healing the smiles of these children. To that cause, The Smile Event 2012 will be held on May 3, 2012 to celebrate Operation Smile’s 10th anniversary in New York City. The event will celebrate the more than 200,000 surgeries performed on children with cleft lips or cleft palates so they can lead a normal, happy life.
This important event will be held at Cipriani Wall Street, 55 Wall Street, New York, NY. The event will begin at 6:30 and it includes cocktails, dinner and dancing!
If you know the power of your smile and want to return that gift to those who were not born with the choice of that power, then why not click HERE and purchase a ticket to this special evening!
