Feb. 27, 2013. We’re counting down to the first birthday of HCPress.com on Friday, March 1, and the winner of our third birthday giveaway is Trudy Thompson! She was one of several people who “Liked” us between Monday morning and Tuesday evening and her name was drawn this morning by Linda Steele, of SOS Printing. She wins a free dinner for two to the Bayou Smokehouse & Grill in Banner Elk.
A big thanks to Trudy for “Liking” us and helping us celebrate our birthday and congratulations on your win! To claim your prize, give us a call at 828-264-2262.
You can still help us celebrate by just liking us on Facebook. And when you “Like” us we’ll entered you into one of our birthday giveaways, which will include items such as gift cards to restaurants, salons, massage therapists, cash prizes and more. Thanks to the support of our readers, we are now up to over 2,400 followers on Facebook.
For our next birthday giveaway, we’re offering up a $50 gift card to Haircut 101. Haircut 101 was opened in December 1989 to provide the High Country community with the latest in hairstyling techniques, highlighting and color services in a positive and up-beat environment. They have partnered with leading color and hair care manufacturers so that they can offer their clients superior results in the services they request.
“We love what we do and you will too,” said Bishop Glover, of Haircut 101. “A $50 gift card would be great for a haircut and style by one of our stylists. Our stylists are always learning new things and we’re always trying to provide education opportunities from them so they can stay ahead of the game in hair styling.”
Haircut 101 regularly sends their stylists to Bumble and bumble University in New York City to hone their cutting, coloring and styling techniques.
Our fourth giveaway works like this. We’re keeping track of our new “Likes” between 10 a.m. today, through 10 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 28 – and we will put those names in a hat and pull out a winner. We’ll announce the winner on our website on Friday.
With Friday marking our first birthday, it will also mark the last prize giveaway for new “Likes.” Next week, we will be offering up some special giveaway prizes for the 2,000-plus people who have been with us on Facebook since the beginning. Stay tuned for that.
Haircut 101 is located at 174 Depot St., Boone. For more information, call 828-262-3324, or visit them online at haircut101.com.
Correction: A previous version of this story said Trudy Thompson won a $50 gift card to Haircut 101. This is inaccurate. The Haircut 101 gift card will be our fourth giveaway prize. Thompson won a free dinner for two to the Bayou Smokehouse & Grill in Banner Elk. We apologize for any confusion.
