Queen for a Day event!

12-28-11 Queen for a Day event!

    Boise, Dec. 28th, 2011 - Today women whose lives have been touched by crime will take part in the annual "Queen for a Day" event, receiving full makeovers with haircuts and manicures. These ladies, whose lives have been touched by crime, will enjoy a day of pampering as they become "Queen for a Day", thanks to talented students at a local cosmetology school. This is the 4th year this event has helped ladies who have suffered loss or hardship make a spiritual and mental recovery through compassion!

    "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 positive."

    Where:The event will again take place at the D' Shaw school of Cosmology at Cole and Ustick

    When:From 9:00 a.m. this morning until 4:00 p.m. this afternoon

     Most of the women receiving the makeovers have worked with the, 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.
