The Style Upgrade Winners - Spring 2010

As a part of its ongoing Partners in Education initiatives, The Avenue® East Cobb partnered with Lassiter High School's Marketing Department (part of the Career Tech Department) to treat teachers to THE STYLE upGRADE.  Over 30 teachers from Lassiter High School nominated themselves to win a style makeover sponsored by The Avenue East Cobb.  Voting is now closed.  Based on over 8,700 votes from the community, two lucky teachers were selected to win a style makeover package valued at over $1,000. 
Congratulations to the two winners - Ms. Beal and Ms. GreenMs. Cook, Ms. Matthews and Ms. Prestwood all received gift baskets from The Avenue along with a $100 Visa Gift Card for their own STYLE upGRADE.  Click here to see all of the finalists.  Click here to view video of the spring STYLE upGRADE.
