Chiara celebrated her quinceañera on her 15th birthday at the Bayview Ballroom at Berkeley Marina’s DoubleTree. Attended by her closest friends, students at Oakland School of the Arts, and honored by family from nearby and from Mexico, Chiara glowed. She danced with her parents and her peers, was celebrated in speeches and gave her own thanks to the family and community that support her.
Mariachi San Francisco welcomed guests in the lobby, then serenaded the honored lady. A terrific Mexican mariachi band! DJ Vetz kept everyone dancing throughout the rest of the day.
