(Tumon, Guam March 2018)- Dusit Thani Guam Resort proudly donated over $47 thousand dollars from Dusit Smiles Inc. to subsidize cleft lip and cleft palate surgeries needed for Guam children.

“It is with much excitement that we make this donation to assist in improving the lives of children on Guam,” said Dean Huntsman, General Manager of Dusit Thani Guam Resort during a recent check presentation.

Dusit Smiles Inc. is a local non-profit organization dedicated to providing safe, effective reconstructive surgery and related medical care for children born with facial deformities such as cleft lip and cleft palate.

Local plastic surgeons Dr. Darius Richardson of Pacific Surgical Arts and Dr. John Fegurgur of Hafa Adai Specialists partnered with Dusit Smiles Inc. to support the mission of providing cleft lip and cleft palate surgeries for children on Guam.

All funds raised for Dusit Smiles Inc. stay on Guam to benefit local families. The total from 2017 is $47,293.55 which includes funds raised through an annual golf tournament, employee fundraisers and donations.

To date, two children have been identified as qualified recipients for Dusit Smiles Inc. funding assistance. Monies from this donation will go directly towards their procedures.

“We are looking forward to sharing their success stories at our upcoming annual community fundraiser, the Dusit Smiles Golf Championship,” said Huntsman.

The event this year is being held at the Leo Palace Resort Country Club on Saturday, April 21st. Those interested in supporting Dusit Smiles Inc. can visit www.dusit.com/dtgu for details on how to get involved.
