The Perfect Provenance Previews New Smile Collection
to Benefit Operation Smile
Greenwich, CT – September 17th, 2015 – The Perfect Provenance, a new art inspired retail concept store and café that will launch later this year in Greenwich, CT, recently previewed a special collection of products – The Smile Collection — to benefit Operation Smile at their 13th annual Smile Gala in New York City on May 14th. The Operation Smile NYC Gala was hosted by actress Kate Walsh, who spoke passionately about volunteering on a recent medical mission, and also featured special guest Eli Manning.
Lisa Lori, founder of The Perfect Provenance and Operation Smile Founders Circle member, previewed two products as a presenter with her son Luke Lori at the gala. The first products in the Smile Collection are now available for sale online at www.theperfectprovenance.com. Available now online are: 100 percent organic cotton tee shirts for adults and children; custom designed Belgian Linen Tote Bags and golf balls branded with the Smile Collection artwork Smile More design created by Luke Lori. More products in the Smile Collection will be unveiled later in the year, including home fragrance and jewelry.
“I am thrilled to be launching the Smile Collection, as part of my new retail store and to provide even further fundraising support for Operation Smile,” said Lisa Lori, founder of The Perfect Provenance. “Our store will feature authentic luxury, artisan products from the US and around the world. Our Smile Collection tee shirts are made in Sonoma, California, USA from 100 percent organic cotton, pre washed to perfection, and the perfect way to launch Luke’s #smilemore artwork. Our tote bags are ethically sourced and made by skilled artisans in India — they are gorgeous. Finally, the golf balls – Titleist Pro V 1 are excellent – but the Smile More branding make them easy to spot and just plain fun. I can’t wait to introduce many more products in the future. “
Everyone who donated to the Smile Gala’s auction as well as the evening’s presenters including Kate Walsh, Eli Manning & the Broadway Boys who performed in the shirts, received a Smile Collection tee shirt donated by The Perfect Provenance. Operation Smile is an international children’s medical charity that performs safe, effective cleft lip and cleft palate surgery, and delivers postoperative and ongoing medical therapies to children in low and middle income countries around the world.
The Lori Family was introduced to Operation Smile by their surgeon, after Lisa & Mat Lori’s three children all received life changing surgery. Each was born with a rare medical condition called facial paralysis and were not able to smile. Inspired by the volunteer work their surgeon did for Operation Smile, the Lori Family wanted to support other families facing similar challenges in the developing world. Lisa & her friend Kathy Van Zeeland, handbag designer, created a program named The Three Little Bears in 2011, and together with other fundraising efforts by the Lori Family, they have raised more than $2 million for Operation Smile. The Three Little Bears gives children on medical missions a bear for comfort while going into surgery. To learn more, please visitwww.operationsmile.org/bears.
