Whether it’s getting dolled up for a special occasion or treating yourself to a little pick-me-up, every now and then we all need a day of relaxation and pampering to take the stress away. While there are spas and home remedies available, it’s nice to hear about organizations working to voluntarily offer services that may not be an option for everyone.
Working to “provide leisure and recreation opportunities for citizens of all abilities,” the Therapeutic Recreation Division of the Chattanooga Youth and Family Development Department is partnering with Orange Grove to organize this year’s “All Dolled Up.”
Scheduled for Friday, Oct. 17, this year’s event will be held in the cafeteria at the Orange Grove Center. The evening, of music, refreshments, pampering and makeovers for women with physical, cognitive, social, and/or emotional disabilities gives those in attendance the chance to get makeovers, their hair styled and their nails painted.
It’s also free of charge.
According to organizers, “All Dolled Up” was created to “encourage socialization, foster independence, enhance self-esteem, and provide all participants with a good time.”
Those interested in attending should call (423) 643-5716 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to make a reservation.
