"Casita Maria" will honor Thalia with the Gold Medal of Honour at its annual Gala Festival to be held at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel on Tuesday October 14, 2008 in New York City. In addition to Thalia, Pepita Serrano and Joana Caparros will also be recognised with a prize or the Gala this year.
Thalia is very excited and grateful to receive this honor by a charitable orgazanicación so incredible! "Casita Maria" is an organization that was established almost 75 years ago and has served as a catalyst in the Hispanic communities in the South Bronx and East Harlem and other areas in and outside New York City. Their dedication to creating educational opportunities, artistic and employment has served to improve the quality of life in these communities, a large applause for Thalia and "Casita Maria"!
