About Operation Cinderella
“Once Upon A Time…,” those words bring images of princesses, fairy godmothers and magical kingdoms. But, for many women, life is a little more difficult, and disappointments and the reality of their family situations has them feeling a lot like Cinderella: The Cinderella in rags. Operation Cinderella’s goal is to bring a little “magic” back into a woman’s life. The way Operation Cinderella does this is by holding an event where deserving women are provided a night to remember…In four years at the Camden Kroc Center, over 200 women have been blessed on this night to remember, including 65 women in 2015. Now in 2016, “Cinderella Club” has begun a weekly support group to keep the fellowship and love flowing all year round. Attendance has grown to 50 women each week.
