USO at Ft. Drum brought Operation: That’s My Dress to Edgewood Resorts in Alexandria Bay
On Sunday, June, 28, 2015, The USO is brought Operation: That’s My Dress to Ft. Drum! The event was held at Edgewood Resort in Alexandria Bay.
Honoring children of military families for their sacrifices and courage, the USO hosted Operation: That’s My Dress!, one of their premier family appreciation programs. Military children experience unique challenges related to military life and culture. Due to frequent moves, many military children experience disrupted relationships with friends, and must adapt to new schools and cultivate new community resources. Operation: That’s My Dress! is just one of the many ways the USO makes Every Moment Count for our troops and families.
In partnership with SHERRI HILL, international fashion designer for Hollywood celebrities and pageant contestants, the USO provided new gowns/dresses to teenage girls just in time for the homecoming and prom seasons. The event featured a private Fashion Show with professional models and Miss USA and Miss Teen USA stage pageant title holders from across the country, entertainment by the USO Show Troupe, food and so much more. A Prom Expo prior to the dress giveaway included hair and makeup demonstrations, consultations with beauty pageant contestants and celebrity stylists, and accessory giveaways.
