Delivering 1,000 smiles and complete care for children living with cleft conditions around the world!
Greg Steers was born in Athens, Greece to a Canadian diplomat father and a Colombian born mother. Fluent in English, Portuguese, Spanish and French, Greg spent his youth growing up in Japan and Brazil before settling down in Toronto. He has had a very successful career in the investment industry spanning more than 30 years. Greg is a long-time donor of the Toronto International Film Festival and is one of the original members of the Patron’s Circle Program.
His involvement with Operation Smile goes back many years, initially through personal donations. Now, as a way to give back in honour of his long-standing clients. Greg is passionate about Operation Smile's mission - where international and local medical volunteers deliver surgery and complete care allowing children to achieve the best outcomes in life with a new smile of their own. Greg's goal is to fund 1,000 smiles for children around the world to give them every opportunity for a better life. This year marks the second year of his dedication to these children, having already fundraised over $94,000 in the first year alone.
