Miss FIU: What Makes You Smile?

Operation Smile: 10 Smiles for 10 Years

What Makes You Smile?

Miss FIU will be having a fundraiser to raise money for her platform, Operation Smile: 10 Smiles for 10 Years. As the 10th Miss FIU to be crowned, she aims to raise enough by the end of her term in order to pay for 10 children to get a cleft lip surgery. One surgery only costs $240 and only takes about 45 minutes. On April 10th, in the Betty Chapman Plaza she will be having a bake sale and a Smile Off where the first one to smile loses. Take a moment to stop by and participate, enjoy some sweets, and leave your mark on our memory board.
