The military wives makeover event was started 6 years ago by a local business woman, Cathy Cardenas. She wanted to do something for the spouses of our troops who sacrifice so much when their husbands serve our country. So she founded the Annual Military Wives makeover event that takes place every year during the week of Valentine's day!
The Event begins by taking 30 women who are selected in our application process to a Ross store where they are greeted by stylist and are given a shopping spree for a new look.
The Ladies are then bussed over to a salon where they have a catered lunch and then receive full makeovers. Following their makeover they head over for a professional photo shoot to take pictures that are then sent to their husbands overseas. The evening is then capped off by attending a dinner in their honor where they are given an award for their service and sacrifice.
Founder, Cathy Cardenas says "My heart goes out to these beautiful women who sacrifice so much when there husbands are gone for so long serving our country. I wanted to make sure I could give these women one day to feel beautiful and remind them just how important they are."
