12-09-10 "Queen for a Day"
Boise, Dec. 9th, 2010 - Women whose
lives have been touched by crime will take part in the annual
"Queen for a Day" event today, receiving full makeovers with
haircuts manicures. These ladies whose lives have been touched by
crime, enjoyed an afternoon of pampering as they became "Queen for
a Day", thanks to talented students at a local cosmetology school.
Last year roughly 30 ladies participated in the Queen for a day
event, this year we hope to double that number!
"This event really gives these women a
positive fun experience to smile about" said Tina Perkins,
supervisor of the Boise Police Victim-Witness Advocate unit. "For
these women, many of whom are care-givers for others, to take the
time to give to themselves can be a huge step in rebuilding their
lives and families. As victim witness coordinators we respond to
tragic events. It rejuvenates us to take part in something this
Most of the women receiving the
makeovers have worked with the Ada County, Boise City Victim -
Witness unit. The women were asked to be part of the program by the
law enforcement victim-witness advocates.
The annual event is the brain child of
students and staff at the school as they considered ways they could
use their talents to help those who could use a lift in spirit this
time of year.
