In order to follow park regulations, we cannot allow money to exchange hands on park grounds. To keep things simple, donations must be made through Operation Smile's OneSmile Donation page for this event. Donations must be made by May 10, 2017 in order to participate in the fundraiser. Making the donation online will allow your donation to be tax deductible.
Q: Why is the session fee a “suggested donation of at least $30”?
A: Each operation costs $240, so by offering 15 minute mini-sessions for at least $30 we can raise enough money to pay for an operation every two hours! What you decide to donate is up to you, but we ask that it be at least $30 so we can reach our goal.
Q: What is included in my session fee?
A: Like other sessions and events, your mini-session includes Facebook images, and online gallery, post-processing, and a 10% off coupon. As a special thank you you’ll also get a free digital file!
Q: Why do the donations need to be in by May 10th?
A: We are setting the date as close to the main event date as possible to allow for your changing schedule, however we need to know if we have slots to fill with people on wait-lists if you cannot attend at the last minute.
Q: My plans suddenly changed. Can I get my money back or re-schedule the mini-session?
A: Because the online donations are made directly to Operation Smile, they cannot be refunded. Unless we need to use the rain date, no other dates for the fundraiser will be added. I love the ability to donate my time to Operation Smile twice a year, but as a business owner I cannot afford to take paying work days away from myself and my other clients. I hope that you understand!
