Operation Smile

What could be more moving than giving a child a new outlook on life? When we give ourselves to helping the children, we are not only making them beautiful on the outside, but we and those around us also become beautiful on the inside. Operation Smile is going around the world turning children and their families into receptacles of joy.

On Thursday May 14, The Grey Eagle Resort and Casino Will Be Holding Operation Smile Charity Gala. The Hostess for the night will be Miss Universe Canada Contestant Cree Big Plume. The doors will open at 6:00pm and the show starting at 7:00pm. The event cost is $65.00 per person plus tax and service fees. It is open to all ages. There will be a special arrangement entitled the VIP Table Seating. The VIP Table Seating is for a reserved table of ten, table service and a complimentary bottle of red and white wine. The cost for the table is $1,500 plus gst and service fees. It will be a memorable evening.

What exactly is Operation Smile all about? Operation Smile motivates people around the world  to give donations to children that are born with and suffering from cleft lip, cleft palate or other facial deformities. Operation Smiles believes that respectability begins with a smile. Participants in Operation Smile are worldwide with international colleagues in over 60 countries. Most of the children have never been to a doctor before and practically all of the families cannot afford the care they desperately require. Now with more than 6,000 medical volunteers, relief and bringing a safe, effective cleft surgery and connected medical care directly to children is a reality. Operation Smile tries to establish a permanent facility universally where operations are performed. Building sustainability through learning and teaching with local healthcare experts is one of the goals. In third world countries where medical facilities and equipment are lacking, Operation Smile usually leaves behind crucial supplies and medical equipment. If possible, in some countries where the need is enormous, permanent care centers are established. This way the children can always be checked throughout the year. Grateful parents constantly express their heart-felt thankfulness to the staff, doctors, nurses and volunteers making their little girls and boys beautiful.  Most parents agree it’s the best gift they could ever hope for.

Because Operation Smile appreciates your support, they have put together a great show for your pleasure at the beautiful Grey Resort and Casino. You will be treated to a superb show that consists of a few events featuring Dallas Archand better known as a hoop dancer and recognized by his Indian name "Dancing Buffalo Man" (Nimihto Paskwa Mostôs Napew). Some of his other dancing consists of Fancy, Hoop Dancing, Break Dancing, Grass, and Traditional to Contemporary Indigenous Styles. He will keep you on the edge of your seat with his distinguished vigour and abilities. An extremely talented man from the Alexander (Kipohtakaw) Cree Nation, located not far from the Grey Eagle Resort and Casino near Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.

Also it will be a pleasure and treat to hear and watch Tracy Bone perform, one of the best and winning awards in Country Western music. Tracy grew up on the Keeseekowinin First Nation in western Manitoba, Canada. In 2008 Tracy released her first album entitled No Lies.  In 2009 Tracy Bone won the Juno Award nomination and "Songwriter Of The Year."
