Support for Smiles

An event raises money for the Malibu High School chapter of Operation Smile.

Supporters gathered Saturday at the Malibu Family Wines Tasting Room to support the chapter of Operation Smile. The event included wine and food as well as a performance by the a cappella jazz band In Transit.

Operation Smile provides free surgeries to repair cleft lip, cleft palate and other facial deformities for children around the world. For more information on Operation Smile, go here.

Repairing cleft-palates and cleft-lips is a great cause. Many people are unaware that 1 in 500-700 babies suffers from one of these conditions. Cleft-lip and cleft-palate can be caused by a litany of things including exposure to medications such as Topamax. The FDA recently recommended that women who are or may become pregnant stop taking Topamax to avoid such a birth defect. Just something to be aware of – it’s a sometimes-preventable and oftentimes easily fixed condition. Operation Smile is a cause more than worthy of support!
