March 18, 2015 – Los Angeles, CA – For many young Latinas their biggest dream is to celebrate their 15th birthday with a big party. A dream that this year will come true for six Latina teenagers who belong to the foster care program in Los Angeles, on March 28, when La Plaza de Cultura y Artes host a very special Quinceañera party.
Thanks to the generous support of more than thirty companies, the girls will receive an exceptional treatment since early Saturday morning. A team of professionals will be in charge of doing their hair and makeup for the occasion. In addition, they will dress them with the latest trends in dresses, shoes, and accessories for Quinceañeras of Luna’s Bridal.
Then, the great celebration organized by Quinceanera.com and Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) will take place, an event that also aims to raise the community awareness about the amount of children and teenagers who need to be adopted permanently.
“Currently there are 18,000 children in Los Angeles County living in foster care, of which 60 percent are Latino. Events like this help us recognize these wonderful young women and, hopefully, help them understand how special they are. I thank all the foster parents who are giving these young women a loving home and also all of our DCFS social workers and staff who work so hard for our children,” said Philip L. Browning, Director of the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services who also said, “I especially want to thank Quinceanera.com and all those who helped make this event possible and for making our girls’ dream of having a Quinceañera come true”.
The party, which will last until 6 pm, will not miss any of the typical elements of this celebration so rooted in the Latino culture. There will be a waltz, a feast, a photo shoot, gifts, and a huge cake with candles that the honorees will blow to the rhythm of “Las Mañanitas”. Entertainment will be provided by DJ SANTAROSA, Jesus Mendoza, the new promise of Mexican regional music, and a special performance by Pedro Rivera, father of Latin Grammy nominated singer, Jenni Rivera.
The friendly and charismatic touch of the ceremony will be in hands of an extraordinary master of ceremonies: Stephanie Himonidis, better known as “Chiquibaby”, who will be in charge of entertaining more than 150 guests and introducing the different personalities that have supported this noble cause, including Christine Devine, news anchor of the “Wednesday Child” segment of FOX 11 News and well known actress Rosa Blasi.
