6th Annual Benefit Art Show
We would like to thank everyone who helped make this benefit art show possible especially to Romero Britto. We would also like to thank everyone who gave their contributions towards this event to help the needy children who suffer from cleft lip and palate.
All proceeds were donated to an amazing organization called The Smile Train, who help provide free surgeries, through generous donations, for needy children with cleft lip and palate.
ABOUT ROMERO BRITTO:
Romero Britto has created a quite a name for himself in the modern art world. His work is shown internationally, from Dubai to London to New York, and has been praised by the New York Times as “Matisse channeling Picasso.” Britto has been one of the few artists asked to design the half time show at the Super Bowl. He is known to be a charitable artist and activist.
ABOUT THE SMILE TRAIN:
The Smile Train is dedicated to helping the millions of children in the world who suffer from cleft lip and palate through free surgery for children, and free training for doctors. Since 1999, they have provided free cleft surgery for more than 300,000 children who could not afford it. They have helped support hundreds of cleft treatment, training and education programs in more than 70 countries, and provide free resources for cleft care professionals around the world. They provide free surgery to more than 200 children every day.
And the ones who are lucky enough to find a Smile Train free cleft surgery program, not only survive, they thrive. After a 45-minute surgery hands them back their future, and a second chance at life that they never thought they’d get.
