Beauty for Ashes Benefit

Our Veterans sacrifice so much for our country. Yet, many are unable to successfully return to civilian life after their tour(s) of duty. They have seen and experienced the unthinkable. They are forever changed. The most shocking statistic is that out of the 630,000 homeless people in America, over 67,000 are veterans. That means one in ten homeless people are veterans.

Brother From Another (BFA) cordially invites the community to a formal banquet and hair show benefit in support of “No Family Left Behind,” our initiative that empowers us to financially support at-risk homeless veterans and their families as well as those who are in urgent need of financial assistance to remain in their home.

The event is being held on October 13, 2019 at Prince George’s Ballroom, 2411 Pinebrook Ave., Hyattsville, MD 20746.

Admission is just $60 and includes dinner, a hair show, a live band and entertainment. Reserve your spot at

Guests are encouraged to bring a winter item to donate (coats, hats, scarves, gloves, and boots for our Guests of Honor). Items will be donated to MCVET (Maryland Center for Veterans Education and Training) & Lifestyles of Maryland Foundation.

Interested vendors may purchase a spot for $150.

For those who are unable to attend but wish to help, consider sponsoring someone in need who would like to attend or make an online donation to support our cause at:
