An Evening with AngelsStories you will never forget

Two teenage girls, who suffered severe burns from a space heater accident and a house fire, will share their stories during a special fundraising dinner at a private residence in the San Diego area on Saturday, September 28, 2013 from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m.

For young accident victims with severe burns, the pain never really stops. The stares, name-calling, teasing and cruelty of their peers create a sort of living hell for this special group of survivors. Lesia Cartelli knows this is true, because she lived through it herself. 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 create Angel Faces for girls who suffer similar disfiguring burns and other traumatic injuries.

Lexi and Alex involved in separate horrific tragedies recently participated in the extraordinary Angel Faces® weeklong retreat that helps teenage girls overcome the stigma of severe burn disfigurements. They will speak passionately at the fourth annual Evening with Angels about their journey and Angel Faces® during the evening’s inspiring program.

 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 has been attended by girls from Canada, Mexico, and the UK.

Angel Faces® Charity is a national non-profit organization, headquartered in Encinitas, California, whose mission is to provide healing retreats and ongoing support for adolescent girls and young women with burn/trauma injuries to achieve their optimum potential and develop meaningful relationships for themselves, their families, and their communities. The unique retreats offer both a physical and emotional transformation so each girl walks away with a new confidence and a hopeful outlook.

 Angel Faces® will add a Boys program next year.
