TV personality and sportscaster, Bonnie-Jill Laflin hosted this year’s ‘Hounds and Heroes’ event in honor of eight military wives of wounded warriors.
On May 17th, 2015 Hounds and Heroes honored eight women from the Wives of War to a day of beauty and pampering. These women were transported from Camp Pendleton to Downtown San Diego where they spent most of their day at Sente Bella MedSpa, owned by former San Diego Charger, Legedu Naanee. The ladies started off their day by receiving massages and facials donated by Sente Bella, then followed with hair and make-up. Celebrity Hair Stylist, Mebe Gaddis, and Professional Make-Up artists, Monica Trezise and Doris Lew, donated their time to assist in beautifying these ladies for this special day. After they completed hair and make up, they were fitted into gorgeous dresses donated by Dress The Population for a night out on the town. To finish off the night these right women were treated to a dinner at Cowboy Star.
“It was such an honor to spend the day with these strong and resilient women,” said Bonnie-Jill. “Too often, the spouses of those who serve are overlooked for the sacrifices they make at home. These ladies are the caretakers for our wounded warriors and it was important for them to be recognized and appreciated.”
Hounds and Heroes, founded by Bonnie-Jill Laflin, is a national nonprofit dedicated to life the spirits and morale of our active, wounded, and veteran military troops worldwide, and to increase community awareness, education, and involvement about the cruelty towards animals and necessary care for animals through rescue, foster, and adoption.
