WHAT: Sherri Hill, international designer for Hollywood celebrities and pageant contestants, is graciously donating a wonderful collection of her homecoming dresses through her partnership with USO of Metropolitan New York to the daughters and women of our armed services for the third annual, Operation: That's My Dress! with USO of North Carolina. This year's event will also feature the irresistible line of jewelry and fashion accessories from Stella & Dot.
For more than seventy-two years, the USO has been dedicated to lifting the spirits of America’s troops and their families and this once in a life time experience for the daughters and wives of Camp Lejeune, Camp Johnson, MCAS New River and MCAS Cherry Point is a thank you for the sacrifices they have made as their mothers and fathers defend our freedom. Operation: That's My Dress! features food, music, entertainment from the USO Show Troupe and a private fashion show featuring gowns designed by Sherri Hill exclusively for homecoming season.
