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 KinneyStefani 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.
