Belles Bring Holiday Cheer to Troops and Families

On December 13, five members of the Belles Performance Team visited the USO at Fort Carson in Colorado Springs to bring holiday cheer to Armed Forces members and their families. The Belles performed a holiday show for a standing room only crowd of over 200 servicemen and women and their families. After the show, the Belles escorted Santa in, who had presents for every child in attendance, distributed their military themed posters and signed autographs for children, servicemen and even wives of currently deployed soldiers.

Owner and Executive Director Cher Fox really appreciated the opportunity to perform at the USO for their 2nd Annual Christmas Party. “Performing at the USO was such an amazing experience and has been a long time goal for the Belles," shares Fox. "We were honored to be asked to perform and everyone in attendance was so appreciative of our time. I was touched when many wives asked us for autographed posters so they could send them to their deployed spouses with the rest of their holiday gifts. Our troops do so much for us and sacrifice every day, their families sacrifice every day they are to take time out of our lives to show them how much we appreciate and support all they do for us was truly our pleasure."
