{EVENT RECAP} Beauty Week 2018 and Random Acts of Kindness

{EVENT RECAP} Beauty Week 2018 and Random Acts of Kindness

Last week was Random Acts of Kindness Week, but at Elite Secrets Bridal kindness is far from random. For the cause that celebrates spreading kindness for global impact, the team spent a day giving back to the women of the House of Ruth Maryland in true Elite Secrets Bridal fashion—serving makeup applications, hair styling, gift bags and an overall day of beauty. 


House of Ruth Maryland is one of the nation’s leading intimate partner violence centers, helping thousands of battered women and their children find the safety and security that so many take for granted. House of Ruth Maryland leads the fight to end violence against women and their children by confronting the attitudes, behaviors, and systems that perpetuate it, and by providing victims with the services necessary to rebuild their lives safely and free of fear.
Although it's celebrated one week out of 52 weeks in the year, Random Acts of Kindness is a way of life for Elite Secrets owner, LaTonya Turnage. “I believe that giving to others and sharing my gifts is my purpose—it’s what I was called to do. I promised God that I would use my gifts to bless His people,” says Turnage.


In addition to her generous gift to the women at the House of Ruth, 

  • Elite Secrets Bridal hosts Brides Across America twice a year, providing free wedding gowns to qualified military and first responder brides. 
  • The Baltimore bridal brand has donated proceeds from spring bridal trunk shows to For 3 Sisters—a locally-based, national grassroots organization with a mission to raise awareness and improve the quality of life for men and women affected by breast cancer. 
  • And, in October Elite Secrets Bridal treated mothers from the Hope Project and Elijah’s Hope Foundation to hair and makeup. 

Elite Secrets Beauty Week 2018


We ended this year’s Beauty Week with a bang—or should we say, “with a pop.” We popped bubbly, indulged in cotton candy, and all things bridal this past Saturday.  If you weren’t there, you missed it. 


B'More Fluff and LaMarca Prosecco were in the building providing sweet selfie-worthy treats for this bridal fete. Brides and wedding vendors sipped and swayed listening to DJ Drift while makeup applications were in session.
