I believe that these young women deserve and need a helping hand in getting their lives back on track, I have been through trials in my life and know that mentors are important in shaping and changing an individual.
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) July 29, 2011
At a young age every little girl is asked what she wants to be when she grows up. Most answer movie star, ballerina or singer. As these young girls become young women, their answers change to doctor, journalist, lawyer, fashion designer or maybe even perhaps, makeup artist. In the spirit of empowering young women, Ruby Polanco of the Ruby Makeup Academy is donating a Makeup Artistry Course valued at $2,600.00 to a raffle sponsored by the collaborating bodies of Women Empowered and Central Juvenile Hall entitled Dress for Success. This event will be held at Central Juvenile Hall, 1605 Eastlake Avenue Los Angeles, CA 90033 on August 6, 2011.
The purpose of Dress for Success is to motivate young woman by providing workshops that will prepare them for professional work environments. Polanco had this to say about the event, "I believe that these young women deserve and need a helping hand in getting their lives back on track, I have been through trials in my life and know that mentors are important in shaping and changing an individual.”
