Loyola at a Glance

Student hosts benefit for disadvantaged young women

December 16, 2011

Jasmine Brown, a junior at Loyola University New Orleans, is hosting “Beautifully YOU: A Christmas Charity Soiree,” an event designed to promote self-esteem and intrinsic beauty for disadvantaged young women in the New Orleans area. The event is open to the public and will take place at the McKenna Museum, located at 2003 Carondelet St., on Dec. 18 from 7-10 p.m. The event is free, however, donations are accepted. All proceeds will go to the Covenant House.

“Beautifully YOU” gives young women ages 17 to 21 from the Covenant House the opportunity to have their make-up done by professionals and shop at a pop-up boutique for free clothes and accessories donated by individuals and local stores, while also attending empowering segments by Style Academy. Guests will also be entertained by a fashion show and music performed by a live band and disc jockey.

“The purpose of this event is to give these young women a special gift - the opportunity for them to awaken their inner beauty through an extravagant evening of esteem empowerment. This event is meant to remind them that despite their situation, they are beautiful and valuable,” Brown said.
