This year, Circle de Luz is celebrating 10 years of radically empowering young Latinas, and the profound work that we are doing has never been more important. If you have wondered if, together, we’re making a difference, watch what our hijas had to say when we asked them:
You Are Invited To Help Us Celebrate!
In our 10th year, we are even more focused on our commitment to provide educational access and personal empowerment to young women who are too often overlooked in our society. To help us expand our reach, we are launching a 10 for 10 effort this year where we’ll host 10 different awareness building and fundraising events to yield at least $50,000 to grow our staff and expand our impact.
Some of the events are local to Charlotte but others will be open to all of our donors around the world! We hope you will consider joining us in these efforts as YOU have been instrumental in our growth and success! Please save the date, share these opportunities with others and join us in sparking a life! More information to follow on some of the 2018 events.
