RE/MAX of Cherry Creek Raises $2,400 for Operation Smile During Chocolate Fantasy and Valentine’s Day Market DENVER – RE/MAX of Cherry Creek, one of the top-producing real estate offices in Colorado, recently raised a total of $2,400 to benefit Operation Smile during a special Chocolate Fantasy and Valentine’s Day Market held February 3, 2010. The funds will enable Operation Smile to surgically transform children suffering from cleft lip, cleft palate or other facial deformities. The generous donations made by attendees at the event will give 10 children their very first smile. “We are extremely pleased with the success of our Chocolate Fantasy and Valentine’s Day Market, especially when considering our original goal was to raise $500 from $10 donations at the door,” said Ben Fiedler, broker/co-owner of RE/MAX of Cherry Creek. “Operation Smile is such a worthwhile charity. The organization believes that all children deserve to live their lives with dignity. By mobilizing a world of generous hearts to heal children’s smiles, Operation Smile transforms lives across the globe. I wish to personally thank everyone who generously donated funds for this life-changing organization.” In addition to donations from attendees, RE/MAX of Cherry Creek donated $5 to Operation Smile for each participant. Guests who attended the Chocolate Fantasy and Valentine’s Day Market enjoyed four remarkable chocolate fantasy desserts and paired wine samplings while gaining entry into a select and affordable Valentine’s Day market. The event was chaired by Judy Mead, a volunteer for Operation Smile since 1995 and a broker/co-owner at RE/MAX of Cherry Creek. Mead was also involved with starting a Colorado chapter for Operation Smile. Driven by its universal compassion for children, Operation Smile works worldwide to repair childhood facial deformities by delivering safe, effective surgical care directly to patients. Operation Smile is an international medical humanitarian organization dedicated to raising awareness of this life-threatening issue and providing lasting solutions that will allow children to be healed, regardless of financial standing, well into the future.
