“Beyond making her own dream come true, Charlie and her company designated Cinderella’s Noche Latina Quadentraceñera as a charity fundraising gala to advance opportunities for homeless youth at Covenant House PA in Philadelphia; for disadvantaged high school students from the South Bronx’s Open Hydrant Theater Company (who performed at the event); and for a 4th/5th grade classroom at iLEAD, Pacoima, CA, where a 5th grader from the projects designed Charlie’s gown.
The public can read about the three charities and donate through EventBrite at fund youth opportunity through May 14. All proceeds will be divided evenly between these charities, which have special meaning to Charlie and Synergixx. Invited guests met members of each group at the event, walked through a youth opportunity hallway, and made donations in lieu of gifts.

The event included Quinceñera traditions, such as a choreographed dance by Charlie’s “court,” formal, brightly colored, full- skirted gowns, black tie fashion, and performances from the Grammy-Award winning Latin group, Yerason.”
