● By Richard Gaw
Joanne Fryer hadn't won anything since she became the recipient of a holy card when she was a sixth-grade Catholic school. Soon, she will get to enjoy much more than what a holy card can do.
Fryer, a resident of of Valley Township, was selected as the grand prize winner in this year's Valentine's Day Extravaganza contest, sponsored by the Chester County Press, Locable and several local businesses, from Feb. 1-10. Fryer received an 80-minute hot stone massage fom Nicholas Anthony Salon and Day Spa; a $75 gift card to Anemoni Jewelers; one dozen roses from Sweet Peas of Jennersville; a premium box of 32 assorted, hand-crafted Swiss chocolate truffles from Neuchatel Swiss Chocolates; and a recliner valued at $498 from Martin Furniture.
Fryer was chosen from 576 entries, in a contest that was promoted in the printed version of the Chester County Press, as well as on its Facebook pages, website and e-mail circulation. Amanda Boyer of Oxford, who earned a second prize in the Extravaganza, and Cathy Carl of Unionville, who finished as the third prize winner, also received gifts from Nicholas Anthony Salon & Day Spa, Anemoni Jewelers, Sweet Peas of Jennersville, Neuchatel Swiss Chocolates and Martin Furniture.
"Our Extravaganza received over 50,000 'looks' from the readers of the Chester County Press and its many news companions in our social media network," said Publisher Randy Lieberman. "This contest proved to a triple win -- for our three winners, for the effectiveness of our collective voice, and for our participating partners, whose marketing reach extended even further."
