You're Invited: Grin Gala 2011 with Lauren Graham

Party for a cause at Operation Smile's  4th Annual Grin Gala in Washington, D.C. on May 7. The Grin Gala is designed to raise awareness and funds for Operation Smile, an international children’s medical charity dedicated to providing free reconstructive surgery for children around the world who suffer from cleft lips and cleft palates.

Every three minutes, a child is born with a cleft. One in 10 of those children will die before their first birthday. The Grin Gala is a premier event, attended by business leaders and humanitarians who are committed to helping Operation Smile provide hope and healthy futures for children around the world.

The formal affair will be held at the posh Chamber of Commerce and hosted by celebrity guest Lauren Graham. Graham is best known for her current role as Sarah Braverman on the critically-acclaimed series, Parenthood, and her former role as Lorelai Gilmore on the series Gilmore Girls.  As a native of Northern Virginia, Graham is returning to her childhood roots to serve as honorary host for the Grin Gala.

Exclusive to the Grin Gala’s VIP event are appearances from D.C.’s top chefs, including Chef Todd Gray and Mixologist Simo Ahmadi from Equinox; Chef Peter Smith from PS 7; Chef Victor Albisu and Mixologist Troy Bock from BLT Steakhouse; as well as Mixologist Stephen Warner from Columbia Firehouse. During the event, each chef will prepare specialty dishes to be paired with tempting offerings from their mixologist.
