La Jolla Mom - Martinis and Makeovers: Supporting Families of Fallen Soldiers

You’re Invited To Martinis and Makeovers: Supporting Families of Fallen Soldiers

Martini's and Makeovers

As you just read, Martinis and Makeovers is being held on Thursday, May 3 from 6:00pm – 9:00pm at the Cuvier Club in La Jolla. You are invited. Your friends are invited. The more the merrier! This is a wonderful evening to relax, have fun and honor the surviving spouses of many of our fallen heroes.  The night will be filled with pampering, appetizers provided by Crisp! Catering, music, a silent auction, wine provided by Barefoot Wine, and of course some special signature Martinis sponsored by Patrons Ultimat Vodka.

About Got Your Back Network

Got Your Back Network, founded by Dr. Andy Baldwin (Navy doctor and former star of The Bachelor), provides support to widows and children of fallen heroes through special events (like Martinis and Makeovers) and qualified organizations. They organize mentorship activities for kids. The ultimate goal is to meet the specific dreams of each child that has sacrificed a parent for our country.
