2313, Inc. started working with Operation Smile about 8 years ago after a colleague spent time at an Operation Smile mission site in South America. Since then, the company has held annual charity events. With the help of local companies and members of the community, they have raised over $50,000 over the last few years through hosting charity bowling, basketball, volleyball, garage sales, recyclable collections and more.
Operation Smile provides free surgeries for children to repair cleft lip, cleft palate and other facial deformities that hinder a childs ability to eat, speak and even smile. In some areas, these children are even shunned by their communities and tormented in school. The reconstructive surgery Operation Smile provides only costs about $240 per child and takes less than an hour.
Saturdays event raised over $2000 for the charity. The entry fee for the tournament is $20 per person in a team of 5-6 people. In addition, T-shirts were sold for $15. 2313, Inc.s team took first place in the competition.
