                    “Save a Smile, Save a Child” to benefit pediatric plastic and reconstructive surgeries at Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital (RBCH) attracted more than 400 guests and raised $325,000.
    Founding co-chairs of this inaugural event were Barbara and Tim Marlowe and Meredith and Darrin Farrow. The couples met through their mutual association with Dr. Arun Gosain at RBCH, whose area of specialty is pediatric plastic surgery and pediatric dentistry. Barbara had been key in forming a family support group for parents whose children had undergone plastic surgery. The Marlowes’ 10-year-old daughter, Teeba, already had 16 surgeries. Born in Iraq, she was 18 months old when an IED exploded, killing her brother, and leaving her with second degree burns on her head and hands. The Farrows’ 19-month-old daughter, Presley, was born with a cleft lip and palate, requiring her first surgery at three months. She had been diagnosed in utero at 22 weeks. “We felt that it was better that it happened to us than to someone else without the wherewithall to provide the best care,” said Meredith, “which led us to Dr. Gosain.”
    The benefit was held at the House of Blues and began with a VIP reception, silent auction and a raffle. A buffet dinner was served before the program, hosted by Monica Robins, WKYC Channel 3, and Jimmy Malone, WMJI 105.7. Patrick Perotti, a partner at Dworken & Bernstein Co. LPA, the evening’s sponsor, presented a check for $250,000. The evening concluded with a performance by NYC comedian, Vic Henley. STORY AND PHOTOGRAPHS BY CAROLINE R. MERK
