‘Edwards Goes To’(TM) Contest to Award Exclusive Red-Carpet Experience in Hollywood to America’s Most Deserving Mom

March 23, 2010

BLOOMINGTON, Minn., March 23 /PRNewswire/ — From carpool chauffeur to breadwinner, breadbaker to PTA president, moms deliver outstanding performances every day. But when was the last time busy moms received thanks and recognition for their selfless efforts? The makers of Edwards® frozen desserts want to recognize and reward moms who deserve a little extra “me time” through the first-ever “Edwards Goes To”(TM) contest.

From now through April 23, 2010, dessert-loving Americans can visit the Edwards® Desserts Facebook Fan Page (www.facebook.com/edwardsdesserts) to nominate a well-deserving mom in their life (mom, grandmother, caretaker, guardian, wife) who is on Facebook, for a once-in-a-lifetime red-carpet experience. One lucky mom will win a first-class trip for two to Hollywood, Calif., including round-trip airfare, five-star hotel accommodations and tickets to an exclusive red-carpet event, courtesy of the makers of Edwards® frozen desserts. The grand-prize winner also will receive a supply of Edwards® Singles desserts to indulge in all year long.

“Research shows(1) that women across the nation have scaled back on indulgences they once enjoyed as they put others’ needs before their own,” says Laura Keogh, Edwards® brand manager. “Through the ‘Edwards Goes To’(TM) contest, we are encouraging America to give moms their well-deserved 15 minutes of fame, while offering busy moms everywhere effortless ways to reward themselves anytime. And we are thrilled to treat one grand-prize winner to an exclusive red-carpet experience in Hollywood to further express our gratitude.”

Edwards Goes To“(TM) Contest

Nominating a mom is easy; from now through April 23, 2010 log onto Facebook and visit the Edwards® Desserts Facebook Fan Page (www.facebook.com/edwardsdesserts). While there, nominate a mom who is your friend on Facebook by submitting a short essay to explain why that mom deserves thanks and recognition for her everyday efforts – both large and small – and her dedication to others. Entries will be judged on poignancy, creativity and originality. Photos and videos are welcome and strongly encouraged.

  • After submitting a nomination, nominators can print an e-coupon for $1 off an Edwards® Singles dessert (while supplies last). It’s an easy way to treat yourself to something sweet, while filling the kitchen with a delicious home-baked aroma.
  • Up to 10 finalists will be selected by a panel of qualified judges and awarded a pampering spa experience with a $500 SpaFinder.com gift card and enough Edwards® frozen desserts to keep their freezers stocked.
  • In May, America will get to vote online at www.facebook.com/edwardsdesserts for their favorite mom finalist; one will be selected by the public as the “Facebook Fan Favorite” and will receive a “party in a box” to host a red carpet-inspired awards show viewing party at home, complete with enough Edwards® frozen desserts to satisfy all of her guests’ dessert desires.
  • The grand-prize winner will be selected by panel of qualified judges and announced this July, following the announcement of the “Facebook Fan Favorite.”
