Northridge, CA (PRWEB) August 24, 2006 –
Zalemark Inc. is pleased to announce the addition of Jeong Jang to its family of celebrity spokespersons. Together, LPGA champion Jang and award-winning jewelry designer Steven Zale will combine efforts to support Operation Smile, a charity that provides free reconstructive surgery to children around the globe suffering with facial deformities.
Jeong Jang (“JJ”) was the 5th ranked golfer in the world according to the LPGA Tour’s official money list last year as well as its top Asian player. She began playing golf at the age of 13, and quickly became one of the leading amateur players in her native Korea. In 2000, JJ brought her game to the United States and the LPGA Tour and amassed the kind of results that bely her five foot tall frame. In 2005, JJ lead the LPGA tour in birdies and top 10 finishes and won her first “major”, the prestigious Women’s Weetabix British Open. In 2006, JJ has continued her winning ways with a win at the Wegman’s LPGA, in Rochester, New York. Jang stated, “I am honored to team up with Zalemark in offering these beautiful pendants to raise money and awareness for the children of Operation Smile. Together, I think that we can reach my goal of helping to fund a full medical mission during Operation Smile’s 25th anniversary in 2007.”
Eric Bursztyn, Chief Operating Officer of Zalemark, Inc. remarks, “We are ecstatic to have JJ join our team as the spokesperson for our Operation Smile pendant. This is a great opportunity for all parties involved, but especially for the children of Operation Smile. We are glad for this opportunity to join with JJ in support of an incredible cause.”

Zalemark, Inc.’s celebrity team also includes supermodel and actress Rachel Hunter, spokesperson of the enormously successful Demeter® line, as well as martial arts and film star Don “The Dragon” Wilson, who represents Zalemark’s limited-edition Legend of the Dragon pendant.
Zalemark, Inc. offers four variations of the Operation Smile Pendant, ranging from silver and 14 karat gold-plated to solid platinum and 18 karat gold set with pave’ diamonds.
