The women got a chance to enjoy a day of luxuries they normally don't get to take advantage of.


The Roanoke Rescue Mission pulled out all the stops to give the women who live there a little pampering Tuesday.

The mission's Day of Beauty event happens every year. The ladies get their hair and nails done and are treated to lunch and sweet treats.

They're also able to relax and enjoy the little luxuries they don't normally get to take advantage of.

Organizers say everyone deserves a special day.

"The ladies need some pampering every once in awhile. Sometimes our ladies are not always remembered especially around this time of the year because this event is always done the Tuesday before Mother's Day and it's just a great day to pamper the ladies," Leslie Littlefield of the Roanoke Rescue Mission told Your Hometown News Leader.

This is the fifth year for the Day of Beauty.

Organizers say they're grateful to all the beauty professionals who donated their time and services.
