One lucky woman will get the chance to relax and receive a complete makeover including hair, makeup and wardrobe. Everyone will join to celebrate at the Great Makeover Reveal gala held at the Kinsmen Community Centre on July 26.

Women can nominate themselves or a friend to try for a transforming makeover with all the works.

Nominations are being taken now and to nominate yourself or someone for the makeover women are encouraged to create a video, if possible, or submit a written entry showing why that person is deserves to be spoiled.

A committee will then view the tapes and make their decision.

The event is put on by Word of Life Church and is open to anyone who would like to attend.

Shannon McArthur, one of the organizers, believes that the evening will be a fun night for women and will offer them something that they will enjoy.

“It’s perfect for someone who wants to update their look or are too busy with life and want to be pampered,” said McArthur.

In addition to the makeover there will be a fashion show, video presentations, door prizes, dessert and more. There will also be retail therapy and local businesses will be setting up booths in the hall.

McArthur is looking forward to the event and hopes that there will be a lot of women from the community that will attend.

“It’s a girls’ night out,” said McArthur. “We want to do a fun event for women and give back to the community.”

The event is also an opportunity to celebrate inward beauty and focus on what makes people beautiful on the inside.

“We are not just focusing on external beauty,” said McArthur. “We are focusing on internal beauty because what really makes us beautiful is who we are.”

The event will kick off at 6:30 p.m. and part of the proceeds raised will go to an orphanage in Rwanda.

Video submissions should include your name, contact information and a convincing reason as to why the person nominated should be pampered.

Videos can be submitted to 4506 44 Ave, Ponoka, Alberta T4J 1B7.

For more information or tickets contact McArthur at 403-783-8826.
