A few weeks ago we ran a contest involving nominations and voting for your favourite Lower Mainland mompreneurs to help them win big, and we had a blast with it! So – we’ve decided to launch another nomination and voting contest, but this time we’re shifting the focus to DADS. Introducing this week’s contest – NOMINATE & VOTE FOR YOUR FAVOURITE NORTH SHORE DAD!
We get emails all the time asking if dads can attend our Modern Mama events (mostly ones that are of particular interest to both parents, such as potty training, toddler tantrum and infant/child CPR workshops), and our answer is usually a resounding YES! We love having dads attend workshops along with their partners, as new strategies with kids can often be implemented quicker and easier if both parents are on board with and understand the plan. All of us North Shore mamas with dads in our kids’ lives know how lucky we are to be raising them with such wonderful, supportive, loving guys, and we probably don’t tell them all enough how much we love and appreciate them (whether they head out to an office every day, stay home with the kids while us mamas head off to work, or some combination of the two). There is something particularly special about the father-child relationship…..and we’re asking for your help to identify those awesome North Shore dads who deserve some recognition as the amazing guys that they are!
The winning North Shore Dad will receive a prize package worth over $450, including:
- 2 tickets to the Vancouver Canucks vs. Columbus Blue Jackets game at 7:00 pm at Rogers Arena on Friday, November 22nd, 2013 (Section 118, Row 11, $176.50 value per ticket); and
- a $100 gift certificate to the Cactus Club Cafe
To be eligible for this contest, a dad and/or his kids must live on Vancouver’s North Shore (from Deep Cove to Horseshoe Bay, the Sea to Sky Corridor up to and including Whistler, and the Sunshine Coast), and YES, you can nominate yourself! We encourage you to be shameless and put yourself out there! And to be clear, all types of dads are eligible (biological, step, adoptive….you name it….as long as a man is a father figure in a child’s life, we welcome his nomination in this contest!).
HOW NOMINATIONS WILL WORK:
- Nominations are open from 9:00 am on Tues, Oct 22nd to 10:00 pm on Fri, Oct 25th.
- To nominate your favourite North Shore Dad, you must post his first & last name, # of kids, why his kid(s) think he’s the best daddy ever, and a photo of the dad OR his kids OR dad with kids in a comment to the post pinned to the top of the Modern Mama North Shore Facebook Page (note that the photo does not have to show faces, as we understand people have varying comfort levels with publicizing photos of themselves or their kids). The photo should be uploaded directly with your comment.
- From the dads nominated, Modern Mama North Shore will select our TOP 10 favourites to move on to the voting round.
HOW VOTING WILL WORK:
- Voting for your Favourite North Shore Dad runs from 9:00 am on Mon, Oct 28th until 10:00 pm on Fri, Nov 1st.
- To vote for your Favourite North Shore Dad, it’s as simple as going to this contest’s dedicated photo album on the Modern Mama North Shore Facebook Page and “liking” that dad’s posted image/name (we will have posted the top 10 favourites in that album before voting opens).
- Feel free to vote for as many dads out of our TOP 10 as you like!
- Once voting closes at 10:00 pm on Nov 1st, the dad with the most “likes” in the dedicated contest photo album will win the above-noted Canucks and Cactus Club Cafe prize pack.
Best of luck to all nominated daddies!
