Turns out Cinderella isn't the only one whose dreams came true.

The Brandon Ballet presented the Giving Hope Through Faith Foundation a donation of $1,800 on Wednesday. The ballet partnered with the foundation for its April performance of Cinderella, promising a percentage of ticket sales to Giving Hope Through Faith.

Not only did the performance sell out, but families of the foundation received free tickets and a backstage behind-the-scenes tour.

Brandon Ballet hopes to continue the partnership with the foundation for its upcoming performing season. Giving Hope provides gift cards, spiritual encouragement and other assistantance to pediatric cancer families and families facing other life-threatening illnesses. Sherry and Dirk Tucker started the foundation after their young son Zachary died in 2006.
