Mar 23 2019
2019 Park City Event

The 2019 Celebrity Ski & Smile Challenge will mark Operation Smile’s 8th annual Event in Park City, commemorating hundreds of thousands of surgeries performed to date that have transformed the lives of children born with cleft lip and cleft palate around the world.

This event will be hosted at Deer Valley Resort, followed by a private dinner on Saturday, March 23, 2019. Park City, Salt Lake City, Los Angeles and New York business and community leaders, celebrity Smile Ambassadors and philanthropically-minded individuals have agreed to lend their support to ensure children around the world are given new smiles.

Teams of five racers will compete against one another in a head-to-head dual slalom race where the best overall team score wins. Each team will consist of one celebrity skier and four amateur skiers/Operation Smile donors. The team with the best overall finish time will be recognized during an award luncheon directly following the race.


100 guests from Park City, Salt Lake City, Los Angeles, New York and around the world join forces to help children worldwide.

Every three minutes, a child is born with a cleft condition. The odds are stacked against those who are unable to receive timely surgery: As many as 93 percent of children with unrepaired cleft conditions will die before their 20th birthdays. Your support will make a lasting impact. We look forward to having you join us in this celebration and working with you to change lives.
