GiGi, the reigning Survivor-champion, will be training for the Momentum 94.7 Cycle Challenge when she is not on stage at the Victory Theatre in Johannesburg. The popular starlet will be riding tandem with Joe Theron, a long time colleague and the owner of the Victory Theatre.
The Smile Foundation’s passion has always been to help impoverished and facially disfigured children by assisting them to receive the much needed surgery that they would not otherwise be able to afford. The organisation sponsored around 200 children through its activities during this past year. These surgeries were performed across 6 State Academic Hospitals that partner with The Smile Foundation in correcting these children’s facial anomalies
GiGi is most well known as the owner of The Lollipop Lounge - an exotic dance club – in Randburg, Johannesburg. She also appeared in the phenomenally successful Nipplecaps and G-strings (currently on stage at the Victory Theatre in Johannesburg) and on the big screen in Poena is Koning.
All the money raised through the 94.7 Cycle Challenge and by GiGi on BackaBuddy will be used by The Smile Foundation for operations on children suffering from facial anomalies. Children’s facial deformities will be corrected in a child-friendly environment, and The Smile Foundation will use its relationship with academic hospitals to engender a child friendly culture, best practices, and Smile Foundation standards.
Smile Foundation is a non-profit organization that brings people together for the purpose of providing expert surgical intervention, creating greater social involvement and enabling sensible corporate social investment – to make a difference in the lives of children with facial anomalies.
We offer holistic care to transform the lives of these children who are threatened with rejection by society.
The Smile Foundation is about meaningfully connecting people to bring about new opportunities, new futures, with the result being – new lives.
