Operation Smile to honor philanthropists at gala

Operation Smile announced that it will honor key donors and fundraisers at its 30th Anniversary Smile Gala on September 28.

The organization, which provides free surgery for children worldwide suffering from facial deformities, will present its Universal Smile Award to Brooke Burke-Charvet and David Charvet.

Philanthropists Julia and Stephanie Argyros, Krista Jajonie, and Daneia Sanadiki will receive the Founders Circle Award. They have spearheaded efforts since 2011 to fundraise for children worldwide suffering from cleft lips and cleft palates.

Philanthropist Jill Grey will receive the Wallis Annenberg Public Service Award. Grey volunteered on two Operation Smile medical missions in Fortaleza, Brazil, and Chiapas, Mexico.

The Corporate Humanitarian Award will be presented to Sanuk, a division of Deckers Outdoor. Sanuk also joined Operation Smile on a medical mission in Lima, Peru, in May and is supporting Operation Smile through the sale of "Smile ... Pass It On!" wristbands on its website.
