Sweet Lisa's Passing Along the Sweet Smiles with Operation Smile

Custom Pastry Shop in Greenwich offering donation to benefit children's charity during month of June

Lisa and Stephen Maronian, owners of Sweet Lisa's Exquisite Cakes in Greenwich, CT, announces the shop’s first "Operation Sweet Smiles" campaign with Operation Smile, an international children’s medical charity.

During the month of June, 10 percent of Sweet Lisa's sales will be donated to Operation Smile to anyone who mentions "Operation Smile" when they place an order, giving new smiles to children worldwide suffering from cleft lip or cleft palate.

Besides a passion for creating custom pastry masterpieces that evoke smiles and amazement, Lisa and Stephen also love to pay-it-forward by donating cakes, cookies, cupcakes and other sweet treats for numerous charity events and fundraisers throughout the year. So working with Operation Smile was a natural fit.

"This is a cause close to our hearts because we know firsthand the power of a smile to a child for our close personal friends." Lisa Maronian said. "We have attended an Operation Smile Benefit previously at Lisa and Mat Lori's home and were moved by the work of their family with Operation Smile and the compassion of the medical volunteers.  It is our honor and privilege to help." 

The Lori Family, who have been friends with the Maronians for more than nine years, have been supporters of Operation Smile for the past four years.  The Lori's three sons, Zachary, Luke and Griffin, who were all born with a condition called facial paralysis. Their surgeon who performed life changing transplant surgery is also a medical volunteer for Operation Smile.  This inspired Lisa in 2011 to launched an international fundraising initiative with Operation Smile called The Three Little Bears, named after her children.  To learn more about the Lori Family's efforts with Operation Smile and The Three Little Bears initiative, you can visit www.operationsmile.org/bears.

Every three minutes, a child is born with a cleft condition, it is estimated One in 10 children born with a cleft dies before their first birthday. Children born with clefts are often unable to eat, speak, socialize or smile. With the help of medical volunteers and generous supporters, Operation Smile provides free surgeries for children around the world to heal their smiles and transform their lives. For as little as $240, the cost of a cleft lip surgery, a child’s life can be changed forever.
