The Smile Downhill
Operation Smile mobilizes a world of generous hearts to heal children's smiles and transform lives across the globe.
Every three minutes, a child is born with a cleft. One in 10 will die before their first birthday. Many of the children who survive live their lives in shame, hiding their faces because of this tragic deformity. Operation Smile was founded on the belief that no child should suffer or die because of a facial deformity.
The Smile Downhill will be a celebration to mark Operation Smile's arrival in Park City and recognize the more than 200,000 lives it has changed thus-far by giving life-altering surgery to children born with cleft lips and cleft palates around the world.
A downhill celebrity ski challenge including a luncheon at Canyons Resort and a VIP dinner to follow at a private residence in Deer Valley. Park City and Los Angeles business 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 and Jennifer Salke, President of NBC Entertainment, along with Henry Salke as Junior Event Chair.
