BENEFITING: FINAL SALUTE
EVENT DATE: Oct 12, 2014
My name is Elizabeth Luras and I am an US Army Veteran running for Ms Veteran America 2014. This is my Ms Veteran America competition (it is not a beauty pageant), there is no swimsuit competition and the judging is not based on how the woman veteran looks, her age, weight or era of service. All of the proceeds of this event go to help support homeless women veterans and their children. It is a great honor to support my sister's in arms and I hope to raise money to support those who've fought for freedom.
The purpose of this event is to showcase “The Woman Beyond the Uniform“. As women, some of our femininity becomes lost when we wear the uniform; because we have to blend in with the boys. Our grace, poise, beauty and talents become camouflaged during our military service.
Proceeds from this event provides housing for homeless female Veterans and their children. Final Salute Inc is the non-profit organization that was established to help support and give a hand up to our freedom fighting military women who have fallen on hard times.
Along with being Soldiers, Marines, Airmen, and Sailors; we are also Mothers, Wives, Daughters, and Sisters!
