The Hispanic community in the South Florida area will be calling their favorite radio stations WCMQ-FM Zeta 92.3FM and WRMA-FM La Nueva I 95.7FM on Tuesday, March 1st 2016 from 6am to 7pm, to support the inaugural Operation Smile “Da una Sonrisa. Cambia una vida para siempre” radiothon benefiting “Operation Smile” the international children’s medical charity that provides free life-changing surgeries for children with cleft lip, cleft palate and other facial malformations.
The radiothon will take place with two of the most listened to radio stations in the south Florida market, the event is set to raise more than 209 smiles to support the Operation Smile mission: with a global network of thousands of credentialed medical volunteers from more than 80 countries, dedicated to helping improve the health and lives of children from more than 60 countries.
The two participating radio stations WCMQ-FM Zeta 92.3FM and WRMA-FM La Nueva I 95.7FM from Spanish Broadcasting System, Inc. are based in Miami, Florida. Because of successful events like these, no family ever receives a bill from Operation Smile for treatment, travel, housing or food, because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.
Operation Smile has provided more than 220,000 free surgical procedures for children and young adults born with cleft lip, cleft palate and other facial deformities.
“Joining the lifesaving mission of Operation Smile was an easy choice. I knew our listeners would be supportive, but their generosity will exceed our expectations,” said Carolina Santamarina, VP of Sales & General Manager of SBS Miami.
