Supporters gathered to raise funds for Operation Smile July 20 at a local event hosted by Veronica Barton Schwartz of Veronica Skin & Body Care Clinic. The fundraiser also served as a welcoming event for Bob Perkins, D.D.S. and plastic surgeon Dr. Davis Nguyen, who both recently opened new offices in Malibu. Acupuncturist Lisa Knickmeyer was also honored at the event.

The local fundraiser also featured a drum circle, tai chi demonstrations and oxygen facials in addition to barbecue food, sangria, chocolate desserts and coffee. A silent auction was also held to benefit the charity.
