Goodwill Manasota Corporate CampusSARASOTA/BRADENTON, FL – Goodwill Manasota is holding a contest to find a mother in the area deserving of extra-special pampering: an image consultation, makeover, and clothes and accessories from Goodwill. Between May 1-6, Goodwill will be accepting nominations from the community; the winner will be selected and notified on May 7th, in advance of Mother’s Day.

Nuovo Salons & Spas is donating hair and makeup services. Sharon Stewart, Image Consultant at First Impressions Image Consulting in Bradenton, will create a new look for the winner and is also donating $100 worth of Goodwill clothes and accessories.

Community members are asked to go to the Goodwill website,, and nominate a special mother to win the makeover. They must include the contact information for their nominee as well as a brief but compelling explanation of why this particular mother deserves to win.

“So many moms don’t get the recognition they deserve for their contributions to their households and our community,” said Goodwill Manasota vice president Veronica Brandon Miller. “Mothers are everyday heroes and, while we should be celebrating them every day, Mother’s Day offers an opportunity to express special thanks. We are grateful to Nuovo Salons & Spas and our image consultant, Sharon Stewart, for their contributions, and can’t wait to read all about the many deserving nominees!”
