NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — Hundreds of women who are served by the Nashville Rescue mission were treated to a day of pampering and a live performance from Reba McEntire Saturday.

The annual Hearts of Hope Luncheon was held at Trevecca University’s Convocation Center.

All of the women were treated to a makeover, new outfit, a limousine ride to the event and a professional portrait.

“It feels a little weird to be treated special when you haven’t always been,” Ami Sucy said. “So it is really nice, especially since I am a mother.”

Making the ladies feel special is the goal, according to the Nashville Rescue Mission’s President and CEO.

“There are so many people around us in our own lives who are hurting and this is for us to come together and show hope,” Glenn Cranfield said. “We want to say ‘you are special we believe in you and there is hope for tomorrow.’”

He continued, “You can hear the joy in the laughter and the smiles on their faces they are so pleased and excited to know today is a special day.”

This was the first year Toledo Crawford was able to attend.

“They made us feel like beauty queens,” she told News 2. “They have just been so perfect. We love being here. I am already overwhelmed. I am truly, truly blessed and happy to be here.”

The Nashville Rescue Mission is a faith-based non-profit that provides emergency shelter, meals and long term support for both men and women.
