SAKS Hosts March 3 SFTT Event: B.E.S.T. Beauty & Health 2010

Showcasing SFTT’s work to get America’s frontline troops the Best available personal combat gear to make it home alive and in one piece

(Greenwich, CT – February 5, 2010) No matter if you’re on-the-go in Fairfield County or a frontline soldier fighting halfway around the globe to protect our freedoms, you can’t be your B.E.S.T. without the appropriate information and tools to support your lifestyle. SFTT’s B.E.S.T. evening of ‘Beauty & Health 2010’ on March 3 from 6:15 to 8:15 PM at Saks Fifth Avenue at 205 Greenwich Avenue in Greenwich, is designed to do both.

On March 3, Saks Fifth Avenue and B.E.S.T. (Best Equipment to Support our Troops) invite you to join them in Greenwich for cocktails, hors d’oeuvres and a special Jo Malone presentation featuring the Art of Fragrance Combining and Scent Surround where you’ll learn to create a signature scent for yourself and your home.

All ticket and raffle proceeds from the B.E.S.T. evening will go directly to Greenwich, CT based Soldiers for the Truth Foundation (SFTT) to pursue its unique educational and advocacy mission: to see that the Pentagon and our elected leaders in Washington get the right personal equipment for our country’s warriors, by giving a public voice to and providing a candid forum for America’s front-line troops. Unlike the many wonderful organizations working to help returning soldiers, marines and other veterans, only SFTT is single-mindedly focused on preventive action—getting the Best available Equipment to Support the Troops before they deploy, the better to bring these courageous men and women home alive and in one piece.

The March 3 B.E.S.T. Evening of Beauty & Health is sponsored by Saks Fifth Avenue and SFTT’s B.E.S.T. committee: Helene Barre (Greenwich), Kathalynn Davis (Stamford), Barclay Fryery (Greenwich), Darrah Gleason (Greenwich), Sharon Kenney (Greenwich), Catherine Ladnier (Greenwich), Shelly Tretter Lynch (Greenwich), Kim Meyerhoff (Greenwich), Laura Moore (New York), Mary Newcomb (Greenwich), Jill Page (Greenwich) Terry Rogers (Greenwich), Lonnee Star (Greenwich), Mary Jane Weiss (Greenwich) and SFTT co-founder and Chair Eilhys England Hackworth (Greenwich).

Tickets are $100 and include a $100 raffle ticket (additional tickets available at the event) for a Dr. Neil A. Gordon face lift, valued at $25,000. The drawing will be held April 30 in Greenwich. Proceeds will help keep SFTT’s unique mission in the forefront as the voice and advocate for America’s front-line troops. SFTT is a non-partisan, apolitical 501(c)3 educational foundation that relies on funding from individuals, private foundations and volunteer-driven B.E.S.T. committee events.

To attend the March 3 event at Saks and support SFTT’s B.E.S.T. work, phone 203-629-0288 or email Maura at maura721@optonline.net.

ABOUT SFTT Foundation

SFTT was founded by Col. David Hackworth and Eilhys England Hackworth to educate our country's citizens on the need to give a voice to our serving sons and daughters and to demand that they receive: Equipment superior to the best an enemy can employ against them; Training that fully prepares them to succeed in all assigned missions; Leadership dedicated to selfless service and the timeless values of duty, honor, and country. Through news breaking reporting on our website http://www.sftt.org/ , which is regularly monitored and sought out by major media, SFTT has been instrumental in shining the bright light of public scrutiny on injustices from substandard body armor and other pieces of critical personal combat gear to anthrax vaccines to Abu Ghraib.

SFTT has been the source, credited and noted for recent front page articles and news segments in the New York Times and the Washington Post, Washington Times, 60 Minutes, NBC, CNN and other national broadcast news programs.

In spring 2009, an SFTT collaborative project with The Washington Times earned a Sigma Delta Chi Award for public service from the Society for Professional Journalists for the series of articles, "Disposable Heroes." It exposed the unethical treatment of vulnerable veterans of Iraq and other frontline duty during a Veterans Affairs medical experiment and resulted in a congressional hearing and major changes to the way the Dept. of Veterans' Affairs will conduct future medical experiments on America's veterans.

SFTT is a 501(c)3 organization that is supported by donations from concerned individuals. More information can be found on the foundation website: www.SFTT.org and its companion site www.FFTT.us.

Beauty & Health evening in NYC in December.

The next B.E.S.T. Evening of Beauty and Health - the first in 2010 - will take place on Wednesday, March 3 at 6:15 PM at Saks Fifth Avenue, 205 Greenwich Ave., Greenwich, CT. Proceeds from the event will benefit the SFTT Foundation’s work to get our frontline troops the best available equipment and training to make it home alive and in one piece. To reserve a spot, call 203-629-0288 or email Maura at maura721@optonline.net.
