VICTORVILLE, Calif. (VVNG.com) Juggling a crowded showroom, people waiting for their vehicles in service, and preparing to move an entire dealership back in a new building is quite a task. “But that’s pales in comparison when it comes to being a mother,” says Todd Stokes, General Manager at Valley Hi Toyota in Victorville. “I believe it’s the hardest job in the world, that’s why we’re having another Mother’s Day giveaway.”
Last year’s Mother’s Day contest winner, Kayla Lukey nominated her mother, Carrie Dugan-Perkins, who later passed away from cancer. Read about her story here. It’s a time to reflect the importance of mothers in our lives. “I think it’s important that we recognize all the mothers in our life. We sometimes take advantage of the fact that they’re always there for us. I know when I’m craving her chile con carne, all I have to do is make a call,” say Brian Ortega, Social Media Marketing Manager at Valley Hi Toyota.
The response is overwhelming when the car dealership holds Mother’s Day contests. It’s not as popular as the Used Car Giveaway (see car winner Francisco Corrales’ video here.), but it gets many entries. “This year, Bella Mia was so touched by the Dugan-Perkins experience, that they are donating the same this year. Which is a free manicure, pedicure, facial, and massage for two. “We’re having a bout with cancer with one of our own too, Katryna, so we understand the impact cancer on family and friends,” says Angela Mota, owner of Bella Mia Salon of Hesperia. Please visit the Bella Mia Facebook page to learn how you can help raise money.
Valley Hi Toyota is asking people Like their page, like the Facebook Live post (aired May 9, 12:30), and to share in one sentence who they nominate to win the ultimate salon & spa experience. “This will be a great gift to treat a mom, grandma, aunt, mentor, any mother,” says Ortega. “Our friends at Goody’s Family Restaurant is providing a meal for the winners as well. Someone will be scoring major points with this giveaway. Be sure to tag, share, let everyone know! Once we get to 15,000 likes- we’ll start working on Used Car Giveaway 15!”
