Jasper businesses unite for Mother’s Day Makeover essay contest
Do you think your mom is the best thing since sliced bread? If you can sum up her awesomeness in a short essay she may win a free makeover and gifts courtesy of several downtown businesses.
“We have been here for eight months and we’re doing so much better than what we had hoped for,” said John Watkins, who co-owns Coco’s Cottage with wife Nancy. “We have just felt really welcomed in the community and wanted to give back in some way and they thought Mother’s Day was a
perfect time to do it. Both of our mothers have passed away, and we think this will be a good way to give someone’s mom a good uplifting day.”
The Watkins said other Jasper businesses were quick to jump on board with the contest, and that if other vendors are interested in donating a good or service to contact them at their store.
Participating businesses include Burnt Mountain Trading Company, Coco’s Cottage, North West Salon, Jasper Drug, The Carriage House, Moore Furniture, Natural Marketplace, Sunsations, Somatics Therapy Center, Millie’s Diner, Weeks Jewelry and Body By Vi.
The grand prize winner will receive a full makeover, which includes hair and makeup from North West Salon, an outfit from Coco’s Cottage, a massage from Somatics, dinner and other gifts.
The second and third place winners will receive gifts from other participating businesses.
All you have to do is write an essay about why your mom is the greatest and send it to or take it by Coco’s Cottage at 30 North Main Street, Jasper, Ga., 30143 for consideration by a panel of judges by the deadline on Friday, May 10.
