Instruction and demonstrations were provided by UAO’s founder, Martha Hoffman, as well as professional aestheticians from the organization. Cosmoprof, Pamela Abshear and Massage Envy in Tempe Market donated skin care, make up and supplies.
“Many more of our members wanted to be a part of this wonderful opportunity, but we needed to limit our numbers to respect the privacy of the women in the shelter,” said Hoffman,
president and CEO of UAO and a CIDESCO Diplomat. “It was a wonderful opportunity and we look forward to becoming involved in more community service projects in the future.”
The UAO offers educational programs, seminars and workshops; discounts for goods and services; networking opportunities with other professionals;
