THANK YOU! Our Celebration of Smiles event was a SUCCESS!

10 05 2018

THANK YOU to everybody that supported our Celebration of Smiles event, our fundraiser for Operation Smile.

5x5 Ornate

Several thousand healthcare professionals volunteer their time with Operation Smile so that for as little as $240, children with cleft lips, cleft palettes and other facial deformities can receive much-needed surgery.  Our goal was to raise $720 so that three children could receive their operation. Thanks to the incredibly generous people that supported this cause, we exceeded our goal, YOU helped raise $886! Thank you!

I’d like to thank everybody that came into the studio for headshots, it was a wonderful, moving couple of days of raising money, I appreciate each of you! I loved hearing the stories people shared about why this particular fundraiser meant so much to them. Thank you, Rachel, for signing up your entire Salon Marielle staff, I loved the fun afternoon with you all! Thank you to my fellow business owners along Main Street that displayed my promotional posters and postcards! Thank you to everyone that shared our Facebook post letting people know of this great promotion. Thank you, Analisa Archer, for not only donating to the cause and receiving a new headshot, but for volunteering your day to assist me in the studio during this event!  Thank you, Mark Miller, for your generous donation to the cause and for bringing delicious snacks for all to enjoy. Thank you, Mark Hemmis, from The Phoenix Emporium for adding Operation Smile to your “Paying Forward/Paying Back” initiative. Thank you, Joan Eve for your generous donation and constant encouragement! Thank you, Lauren Ruth Ward, for donating part of your merch money from your east coast tour, you are amazing! 

And a huge, very special thank you to PPA Charities for aligning yourself with tremendous organizations, I love that you continue your partnership with Operation Smile. I appreciate the legwork that you do and the support you lend the photographers in assisting them throughout the planning process, the execution of portrait day, and the follow up with our fundraising efforts! THANK YOU! You ROCK and I appreciate all that you do!
