Teen Girls in Foster Care are Given Experience of Life Time
Eagle Quest, Inc., That ADOPTED Girl, JM Hair Gallery and Lindo Michochan partner to give underprivileged teen girls a well-rounded, confidence-building experience.
Las Vegas, NV — January 18, 2016. Eagle Quest, Inc. partnered with That ADOPTED Girl to host the first annual S.W.E.E.T. event. In attendance were twenty underprivileged teen girls currently residing in foster care. S.W.E.E.T. is an acronym for Self-Worth Encourage Empower Thrive. The goal of the S.W.E.E.T. Event lies within the title and the purpose is to “build self-worth from inside, to outside experience.” The day included workshop activities, professional makeovers sponsored by JM Hair Gallery and a three-course dinner sponsored by Lindo Michochan.
Programming Coordinator, Edylynn Quijano stated, “We wanted an event that will help jump start the year for our teens girls and help them to value themselves as individuals and encourage them to take responsibility for their own lives.”
The day began with workshop activities presented by Founder and President of That ADOPTED Girl, Juliana Whitney wherein attendees made an “About Me” book to encourage each girl’s sense of self. Then the girls had an interactive full face make up demonstration presented by Make-up Artist and Eagle Quest Foster Parent, Oscar Camacho. Each girl was given a gift bag filled with make-up, and learned how to apply their own makeup step by step to create a natural and fresh every day look. After a quick and delicious lunch, the girls headed to JM Hair Gallery. Typically closed on a Monday, the lovely ladies at JM Hair Gallery came to work on their day off to participate in the S.W.E.E.T. EVENT for our girls. The amazing stylists were able to give them a fresh hair style or up-do make over. Each girl was also provided with goodie bags containing hygiene products and cosmetics. Then off to be wowed by the hilarious and energetic comedian Jeff Civillico at the Flamingo hotel. We received a group discounted rate for our S.W.E.E.T. Event that allowed our girls to see an amazing family fun show on the world famous Las Vegas Strip. After the show, Mr. Civillico posed for group photos with the girls and provided them with autographed posters. Our night ended with a delicious dinner at Lindo Michochan where the girls were serenaded by a guitarist and singer while enjoying authentic gourmet Mexican cuisine.
“You could see the strength and confidence given back to these young ladies after their hair and make-up makeovers! The girls literally transformed into smiling, glamorous and self-assure young women! To witness that was truly a taste of SWEET success!” -Edylynn Quijano
