An Evening with Angels:  Where Wounded Girls
Give Thanks for Skills to Take on the World


Three adolescent girls, who suffered severe burns from a Halloween accident, car crash, and kitchen incident, will share their stories during a special fundraising dinner at a private residence in the San Diego area on Saturday, October 6, 2012 from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m.

Katie, Adriana and Larisa involved in separate horrific tragedies
recently participated in the extraordinary Angel Faces® program, a
weeklong retreat that helps teenage girls overcome the stigma of severe facial disfigurements. They will speak passionately at the third annual Evening With Angels about their journey and Angel Faces® during the evening's inspiring program.

Angel Faces® began out of Lesia Cartelli’s own pain. Her desire to heal from a serious burn injury over 50% of her face and body at the age of nine in a natural gas explosion encouraged her to dedicate and create the best possible program for girls who suffer similar disfiguring burns and other traumatic injuries.

At the retreat the girls work closely with experts and meet other girls
facing similar struggles.  They learn to use new tools that will help
them become more confident and able to face what the world hands them.

Angel Faces® is the only program of its kind in the United States, and was recently featured on CNN.

Angel Faces® is a national non-profit organization, headquartered in Encinitas, California, whose mission is to provide healing retreats and ongoing support for adolescent girls with burn/trauma injuries to achieve their optimum potential and develop meaningful relationships for themselves, their families, and their communities. The unique retreats and aftercare programs focus on the healing process within a holistic framework of mind, heart, and spirit. In addition to art therapy and private, corrective-cosmetic sessions, the program provides licensed therapists to help the girls through their loss and trauma issues, and provides the girls with strategies to handle staring and teasing. The goal of Angel Faces® is to offer both a physical and emotional transformation so each girl walks away with a new confidence and a hopeful outlook toward the future.

This year’s Evening With Angels event is sponsored by Ranch and Coast Plastic Surgery, Lutronic, Stone Brewery, Holiday Wine Cellar, and Lizbeth Ecke and David Meyer.
