Third Annual Mom Makeover Contest 2012

Nominate A Mom
Avantgarde Salon & Spa has launched its third annual Mother’s Day Makeover Contest, to run March 1 – April 15, 2012. This contest is to recognize deserving mothers in the West Michigan community and to honor them with the ultimate in pampering and relaxation. Following the nomination period, each Avantgarde location will select one deserving mom to receive a head-to-toe makeover, along with 2 additional finalists who will each receive one free pampering service. “There are so many mothers in our community who are unsung heroes and deserve to be pampered,” says Bonnie Moore, Avantgarde Owner. “This contest gives Avantgarde the opportunity to pamper two special mothers who have faced difficult challenges in life and given selflessly to those around them, and they truly deserve to be honored.”
Nominations for the contest can be submitted through the salon’s web site. A description of why the nominated mom deserves to win a makeover is requested. Two winning mothers, along with four finalists’ will receive notification on Monday, April 16th that they have been selected to receive the royal treatment. Winners from previous years included a cancer survivor, long-term care takers for elderly or disabled family members, survivors of abuse and mothers who show tireless sacrifice, overcoming great challenges, while caring for all those around them.
Since opening its doors in October of 2007, ‘Making a Difference’ has been the driving -force for both Avantgarde locations. “You never know the circumstances of someone’s life when they walk through the door. We’re here to Make a Difference because we know that everyone needs to be pampered,” says Moore.
