Time To Smile

Larry Lourcey

Hi and welcome to my blog!I do my best
to keep things updated and give you a look at things happening behind the scenes here at Lourcey Photography. Although I've been a professional photographer for over 20 years, I'm also semi-famous for my pizza and bread making. So follow along and enjoy the adventure. And don't be afraid to leave a comment and say hello!

It is that time of year!

This year, our studio is once again participating in Celebration of Smiles- a promotion to raise money and awareness for Operation Smile. The Professional Photographers of America have participated in this for the past several years and this will be our third Celebration.

Operation Smile provides free surgeries to repair cleft lip, cleft palate and other facial deformities for children around the globe. $240 can help provide a cleft lip or cleft palate surgery. This surgery can change a child’s life forever and can take as few as 45 minutes. Contributions in excess of surgical costs are invested into our sustainability programs, which empower our partner countries to treat more children on their own.

The surgeries cost $240 to perform, so I’m trying to raise enough money to pay for 30 of these surgeries this year. Its a lofty goal, but definitely a worthy cause.
