Christine Osborne, owner of Wonder Works in Mount Pleasant, West Ashley, downtown Charleston and on Kiawah island announces that the company will host a “Celebration of Smiles” event on Saturday April 27 at the Mount Pleasant location (624-D Long Point Road) from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and at the West Ashley location (975 Savannah Hwy) from 3 to 5 p.m. Tanya Boggs Photography will have a complete set up inside the stores where guests are invited to get their portrait taken for $24 where 100 percent of the proceeds benefit Operation Smile. Each guest will receive a complimentary desk-size portrait. For every 10 photographs taken, one smile will be saved. A smile can be repaired for as little at $240. Call 843-647-6455 to schedule your appointment today.
Tanya Boggs said, “This is our second annual Celebration of Smiles event. Last year we were able to save three smiles, so we are thrilled to partner with Wonder Works for 2013. With their help, we hope to be able to have an even bigger impact this year,”
Operation Smile is the largest volunteer-based medical charity providing free surgeries to children who suffer with cleft palates, cleft lips and other facial deformities. Since 1982, Operation Smile has provided more than 3.5 million comprehensive patient evaluations and more than 200,000 free surgeries for children and young adults born with facial deformities.
“This is a no brainer! With a $24 donation you can have your child’s portrait done by Tanya Boggs, and we have everything to entertain your kids while you are waiting to get their picture taken,” said Osborne. “Operation Smile is an amazing organization that changes the lives of children every day. We are looking forward to this event and hope everyone comes out!”
