Back again, we'll be hosting the 2014 Operation Smile Celebrity Ski Challenge. This will mark Operation Smile’s 3rd Annual Event in Park City, commemorating more than 200,000 surgeries performed to date, transforming the lives of children born with cleft lips and cleft palates around the world.
This event will be hosted at Canyons Resort, followed by a private dinner. Park City, Salt Lake City, Los Angeles and Manhattan business and community leaders, celebrity Smile Ambassadors and the philanthropically-minded elite have agreed to lend their support to ensure children around the world are given a new smile. This year’s Event Chairs are Billy Bush of Access Hollywood, Jennifer Salke, President of NBC Entertainment, 3 Moms on a Mission’s Stephanie Argyros, Krista Jajonie and Daneia Sanadiki, and Kate Walsh. Henry Salke is also returning as Junior Event Chair.
Teams of six racers will compete against one another in a head-to-head dual slalom race where best overall team score wins. Each team will consist of one celebrity skier, one Olympic skier, and four amateur skiers/Operation Smile donors. The team with the best overall finish time will be recognized during an award luncheon at Red Tail Grill directly following the race.
Sponsors will have the opportunity to be involved through a variety of sponsorship levels ranging from the Title Sponsor down to a Junior Ski Sponsor. For sponsorship information or to make a direct donation to Operation Smile, visit www.operationsmile.org/parkcity.
Info on Operation Smile: Operation Smile is an international children's medical charity that heals children's smiles, forever changing their lives. As a children's charity, we measure ourselves by the joy we see on all of the faces we help. At Operation Smile, we're more than a charity. More than an NGO. We're a mobilized force of medical professionals and caring hearts who provide safe, effective reconstructive surgery for children born with facial deformities such as cleft lip and cleft palate.
Every three minutes a child is born with a cleft, often unable to eat, speak, socialize or smile. In some places these children are shunned and rejected. And in too many cases, their parents can't afford to give them the surgeries they need to live a normal life. That's where we come in as an international charity providing much needed surgical services. Since 1982, Operation Smile, through the help of dedicated medical volunteers, has provided more than 2 million patient evaluations and over 200,000 free surgeries for children and young adults born with cleft lips, cleft palates and other facial deformities. As one of the most prominent children's charities in the world and with a presence in over 60 countries, we are able to heal children's smiles and bring hope for a better future.
Thanks to the generosity and spirit of volunteerism shown by our supporters, we heal thousands of children per year. With your help, how many lives can we change tomorrow?
