Fall Women’s Expo winners

Fall Women's Expo - Gold Crown winners

Congratulations to (from left to right) Karen Lond, Della Turk, and Cindy Briskie – our 2010 Fall Women’s Expo jewelry winners, thanks to Gold Crown Jewelers.

Fall Women's Expo - Karen Lond

Karen Lond, our first place winner, won a 1/2 karat diamond necklace. Karen takes a day for her and her friends at the expo, making it a girl’s day out, she says.

Fall Women's Expo - Della Turk

Della Turk won the second prize: a 10 karat gold bracelet with diamond accents. Getting to the expo early is Della’s strategy, especially to get a good parking spot.

Fall Women's Expo - Cindy Briskie

Cindy Briskie won our third-place sterline silver cubic zirconia ring. Cindy takes her out-of-town sisters to the expo to enjoy the day.

“We jump on the shuttle bus,” she says. “It’s much easier.”

Congratulations to all three winners, and thanks to Gold Crown Jewelers for providing our Women’s Expo prizes. Look for your chance to win at our Spring Women’s Expo, coming March 12, 2011.

Women’s Expo ideas needed

We’re brainstorming here at American 1 (you can probably smell the smoke where you’re at) on what type of presentation we could offer at the Women’s Expo this fall in the auditorium at Parkside that women would want to see. Something educational, but fun. Something relevant to our community/residents that would be beneficial. A hot topic that’s not too controversial.

And we’re not talking about businesses pitching their product or ideas and trying to earn more customers. We want to learn something, or grow in some way.

How we can add to our Women’s Expo events and attract more guests as well? If you have an idea of something that you or maybe a female friend or family member would be interested in learning about, let us know in the comments below.

Spring Women's Expo - Gold Crown Jewelers winners

Congratulations to Kay Linden, Tricia Commet, and Laura Boothe (above) – our Gold Crown Jewelers grand prize winners from the Spring Women’s Expo.

Spring Women's Expo - Kay's new silver necklace

Kay Linden, our first-place winner, says she never wins anything.

“I didn’t even glance at the jewelry at the Gold Crown Jewelers booth,” she says. “I thought, ‘Why bother?'”

But this year, she won twice: our prize, and a free massage from Dr. Brad Double’s office. Kay picked the silver necklace with mother of pearl colored pendant.

Spring Women's Expo - Tricia picks the bracelet

Tricia Commet says this was her first Women’s Expo. She almost didn’t come because she was sick, but now she’s glad she did.

“I loved the expo,” Tricia says. “There’s lots of good information.”

Tricia picked the silver bracelet with purple cubic zirconium stone.

Spring Women's Expo - Laura wins 14k gold earrings

Laura Boothe is a regular at our Women’s Expos. For Laura, it’s a family affair: she meets her daughter, granddaughter, and sister at the event.

“It’s all very interesting,” she says, “and we enjoy doing it together.”

Laura picked the 14k gold earrings with blue topaz stones.

Many thanks to Gold Crown Jewelers for providing our grand prizes during our Women’s Expo. And congratulations to the winners.

Look for more information about our Fall Women’s Expo, taking place October 2.
