Event description

Description

A trip to the spa. A makeover. Getting a fresh haircut. All things that make us feel great. For some women, these things are luxuries beyond their day-to-day experiences...

Imagine, how you might feel if you didn’t have access to even the basics for self-care and personal grooming?

Join us on May 28 (6pm-8pm) at Hycroft Manor for an evening with our very special guest, Caroline MacGillivray, founder of Beauty Night Society as she shares her mission to restore dignity and self-esteem to women of the Downtown Eastside.

Originally, Caroline MacGillivray began volunteering at a shelter in Vancouver’s DTES to research an acting role. One night a woman came in who had had a bad day. When she attempted to style her hair, she wasn’t able to, so Caroline offered to style her. The woman thanked Caroline for making her feel “human”, and shortly after that experience, Caroline founded Beauty Night Society.

Established in 2000, Beauty Night Society provides wellness tools, life skills development workshops, and makeovers to build self-esteem and change the lives of vulnerable women and youth in Vancouver’s DTES (Downtown Eastside). Thanks to their dedicated volunteers, Beauty Night Society has given thousands of makeovers to marginalized women.

When one is struggling with poverty, it affects mental and physical health, self-esteem, and belief that change is possible. Learn more about how to help women step into their futures with more confidence, presence, and impact on May 28. Dinner will be served and pre-registration is necessary.
