Area veteran wins makeover contest


Eau Claire (WQOW) - Monday, local businesses are stepping forward to thank a woman for serving our country; she's being given a full service makeover.

The Hometown Hero Makeover award was presented to a veteran, Renee Taber.  She was recognized for her service through three tours in Iraq.

" I'm pretty overwhelmed, I can't believe how many sponsors and contributors there were," said Taber. "I didn't know of all that when I was nominated, I thought it was just a makeover but it's much more than that."

Taber was given the award at Northwood's Brewpub. She also received gift cards from local businesses including; Gordy's, Victoria's Secret and as we mentioned a head-to-toe makeover that came from Design West.
