Recently we’ve arranged a fun evening for the mothers of the kids from our After School Center in Bat Yam.
The purpose of the evening was just to let them enjoy one evening without the children, husbands, and other things to worry about, the evening just for them.
We invited a makeup artist who works a lot in various fashion styles. She gave a lecture about ways to apply a makeup and also many great tips about cosmetics and care, trying to adjust to the needs of for each one of the mothers.
Finally there was a rich and healthy dinner, and we presented a modest gift to every woman who came!
The event was very successful and everyone had a lot of fun!
