*Due to overwhelming response and limited supplies, we can no longer offer the free pool party package upon registration.
Operation Smile is proud to announce the launch of Summer Smile Splash, a fun summer campaign that will raise funds and awareness for the organization’s global efforts to provide free surgeries for children born with cleft lip, cleft palate and other facial deformities.
To kick off the summer season, Operation Smile and Swimways Corporation are inviting the public to host a ‘Pool Party with a Purpose’ for their friends, family or their community. Hosting a party will help spread awareness about Operation Smile’s crucial mission of healing smiles. Hosts will also receive free SwimWays® branded items and a fundraising toolkit to help host their event. Participants can register online at www.operationsmile.org/summersmilesplash to receive a free pool party starter kit.
“‘Pool Parties with a Purpose’ are a fun new way to raise funds for an incredible organization. We’re proud of our partnership with Operation Smile” said Monica Jones, Director of Marketing at Swimways Corporation. “We hope water lovers around the country join us in this groundbreaking campaign.”
With the help of dedicated medical volunteers and generous donors and corporate partners like Swimways Corporation, Operation Smile has provided more than 220,000 free surgical procedures for children worldwide.
For over seven years, Swimways, a leading manufacturer of outdoor recreational products, has partnered with Operation Smile to create over 5,000 smiles around the world. Swimways’ generous support year after year continues to set standards in innovative corporate social responsibility.
“As a manufacturer of children’s products, and parents ourselves, we believe that every child should have the ability to smile,” said David Arias, president of Swimways Corp. “We’re honored to have the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of so many children around the world.”
