Kathleen Gagg, Executive Director of GYBN, planned, coordinated and ran the event. The surviving spouses came from all across the United States to take part in this unforgettable experience. They were all crowned as honorary “Miss Americas”.

On September, 25th 2014, ten surviving spouses of deceased military personal were treated to a day of spa treatments and makeovers, and a party at the University Club in San Diego, Ca. Got Your Back Network organized the signature “Martinis and Makeovers” event to help the spouses meet other spouses from Southern California and to introduce the women to the San Diego community. The Zzymzzy Quartet band played music during he evening, and a photo booth provided loads of fun for the attendees.

Donations raised from the community attendees and a silent auction totaled $7000.00 which GYBN will use to provide services to families of the fallen. I want to thank all the volunteers who helped plan, organize and hold Martinis and Makeovers. myipaddress . We would also like to thank and recognize the sponsors of the event. They are listed on our website.

Experienced and engaged. They bring talent and smarts without the ego. They have all worked for larger agencies and know the traditional agency model is centered on growing the agency, not necessarily the best interests of the clients they should be serving.
