On April 6, Hagerstown photographer Mary Pat Kelley of Photography by Dale will join with PPA Charities, the philanthropic arm of Professional Photographers of America, to promote Celebration of Smiles Day.
The national fundraising effort will benefit Operation Smile, which treats children around the world who suffer with cleft lips, cleft palates and other facial deformities.
On that day, participating photographers will offer the gift of an individual portrait session and a desk-size portrait in exchange for a $24 donation to Operation Smile.
The donation represents one-tenth of $240, the amount needed to help fund a single surgery.
