Hope Walks board member Natalie Weakly knows a little something about makeovers. As an image and brand consultant with her company Signature Style, she helps people make a great first impression every day. But as a mom with a daughter who had clubfoot, she is much more concerned about the “lifetime makeover” that comes when a child is successfully treated for clubfoot.
Oh, and Natalie also knows how to throw a great party. Marry these passions together, and you have the making of a great event that raises awareness about clubfoot, gains supporters and, quite frankly, is a lot of fun.
She recently hosted her biennial Makeover for Life party in her hometown of Houston. More than 100 people came that night for food, fun and a silent auction, raising more than $10,000 for clubfoot treatment. Some people even got to paint leathers that will be made into braces for kids with clubfoot. The highlight of the evening was the announcement of the “Makeover for Life” contest winners. One man and woman received a head-to-toe makeover and closet transformation from Natalie, in collaboration with event sponsors.
Thank you, Natalie, for all of your hard work and all of the sponsors who helped make the evening possible, including Bonobos, Tease Color and Style Bar, Southern Sequence, Dr. Roth Plastic Surgeon, Signature Style, Hollywood Hippie, David Peck, 1111 Studewood Place, Central Market, Event Entertainment & Production LLC, Lynsey Creative, Plan Our Day, Root & Restore, Freezingpoint, Paige Beitler Photography.
