Stars lent their support this weekend for Operation Smile's 4th Annual Celebrity Ski and Smile Challenge presented by The Nerd Machine. Chuck's Zachary Levi, Yvonne Strahovski and Ryan McPartlin, Chicago Fire's Taylor Kinney, Night Shift's Scott Wolf, TV Personality, Fashion Designer and Super Mom, Brooke Burke-Charvet and husband David Charvet, Parks and Recreations' Retta, Vampire Diaries' Michael Trevino and Claire Holt, About a Boy's David Walton, Bad Judge's Tone Bell and Access Hollywood's Billy Bush went head to head with Olympic skiers on the slopes at Park City Mountain Resort in dual slalom races to raise funds for the children's charity.

After a day of friendly competition Walton, Kinney, and Wolf took home championship medals at the event's award ceremony. In support of fiancé Taylor Kinney, Stefani Germanotta, better known as Lady Gaga, accompanied him at the event's VIP mountainside dinner held at The Canyons Resort. Moved by Operation Smile's mission and the knowledge that as little as $240 can repair a cleft lip or cleft palate and change a child's life forever, Kinney and Germanotta joined guests in making a generous donation to the cause.

The evening closed with an acoustic performance by Nancy Wilson of Heart who sang hits from Heart and Neil Young to the star-studded crowd.
