WANG'S HUMBLE BRUSH WITH OSCARBest Documentary Short goes to film on Smile Train

Yesterday’s positive step for the Lighthouse was not even the best news Charles Wang had received this week. At the Academy Awards on Sunday, the winner of Best Documentary Short was Smile Pinki. The film, directed by Megan Mylan, follows the story of an 8-year old girl from India who was born with a cleft lip and palate. Her life is transformed thanks to Smile Train, the world’s largest charitable organization that provides cleft surgeries.


Wang is the Co-founder and Chairman of Smile Train. To watch the movie trailer and learn more about the charity, visit the Smile Train website. Yesterday at Hempstead Town Hall, Wang told reporters when asked about the success of Smile Pinki, “Nothing is better than that, because it helps our children.”
