Event Description

From Duty to Beauty is coming to Veterans Week in Branson, Missouri .

On Nov. 7 and 8 there will be a gathering of women who have served in our Armed Forces and of those in attendance five of them will be selected, based on the essays submitted by their family and friends, to receive a glamorous makeover - hair, makeup, mani/pedi and will arrive at the 21st annual Military Gala& Banquet by limousine.

Vendors will be present, with special attention to women's issues. A luncheon and fashion show are scheduled as well.

From April 1 through Sept. 15 essays will be accepted that include information on the woman's time in service, what her service meant to her, her family and friends, her experiences in returning to civilian life and why she deserves a makeover. The essays will be judged by a panel of women veterans and veteran supporters. Winners will be announced October 15.
