Skating for Smiles in Westfield

Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Select NJ# 9483506

According to the World Health Organization, cleft lips and palates occur in approximately one out of every 700 children born each year worldwide. The CDC reports 4440 babies born with one or both of these cranial abnormalities in the US each year. Many children retreat from the world to avoid the constant stares or bullying they receive from other kids. They become self-conscious and reserved. Why deprive them of sharing a beautiful smile with the world? Operation Smile can help. And so can you. Just come to the Skating for Smiles event in Westfield on Leap Day. Your donation helps bring a smile back to a deserving child and changes their lives for the better.

Help Operation Smile in their efforts to restore a beautiful smile to children's faces all over the world at the Skating for Smiles event in Westfield on February 29th at the Westfield Rink.

What: Skating for Smiles
Where: Westfield Rink (650 4th Ave)
When: Saturday, February 29th, 5:50 pm to 7:20 pm
Admission: $24 for skaters, free for non-skaters

Skating for Smiles in Westfield

Click here for an instant "No Strings Attached" valuation of your home.Some local children hooked up with Operation Smile to put on a fun fundraiser right here in Westfield. They even managed to wrangle a meet and greet with former NJ Devils Captain Bryce Salvador. (We do love our hockey here in New Jersey.)

Your $24 ticket gets you 90 minutes of ice time, including skate rental. But, if you don't want to skate, you can still come, watch the skaters, and visit with Bryce Salvador for free. For more information about the event and to sign up for a skate session, visit the Skating for Smiles donation page here. Even if you can't make it to the event, please feel free to donate what you can. Help them reach their goal of $6000 by February 29th.

Operation Smile

Since 1982, Operation Smile has sent doctors all over the world to perform corrective surgery on children born with cleft lips and/or palates. They do this work absolutely free of charge. This includes going to some of the most impoverished areas of the world. Without the service these doctors provide, many families would never be able to afford to have this procedure done for their child. Please consider donating to this wonderful organization. Whether that is a one-time donation, becoming a monthly donor, creating your own fundraising event or volunteering your time, it's all well worth your effort. Thank you.

This is a very worthy cause and I hope that this event will raise lots of money, everyone deserves to have a great smile to show off.
