Houston, TX, February 06, 2013 --(PR.com)-- Every three minutes a child is born with a cleft lip or
palate. As a marketing firm, we are reminded every day of how important a smile can be. For less than
$240, Operation Smile is able to provide one child with both the surgery and necessary medical aftercare
to fix their cleft lip or palate. In some third world countries, children with these deformities are
considered outcasts and in some cases even shunned from their community. Here in the United States,
cleft lips and palates are common occurrences that are immediately fixed, and rarely have and lasting
repercussions. Being able to offer a child this surgery can dramatically alter their life and give them hope
for the future. Since 1982, Operation Smile — through the help of dedicated medical volunteers
— has provided more than 3.5 million comprehensive patient evaluations and over 200,000 free
surgeries for children and young adults born with cleft lips, cleft palates and other facial deformities.
The charity event consisted of a water pong tournament and 50/50 raffle that offered an opportunity for
coworkers and friends to support a great cause all while having fun in the process. After the prizes were
handed out to the tournament and raffle winners, SEE Marketing was able to raise over $300 to donate to
Operation Smile. In October, 2012, SEE Marketing hosted a smaller poker tournament in which all
proceeds of $540 were donated to the Operation Smile foundation. Over the last four months, SEE
Marketing has been able to raise enough money to complete three reconstruction surgeries to children in
A big thanks to the generosity of Donnie Navarette, Edward Hua, and Carlos for letting SEE Marketing
host this special event at The Racks Restaurant and Sports Bar. SEE Marketing hopes to raise money for
many more children this year with upcoming events. With your help and donations imagine the number
of lives we can change for the better. If you are interested in attending future events or donating please
