Atlanta, Georgia (PRWEB) May 14, 2014
Known and respected for his innovative, minimally-invasive “Band-Aid” cosmetic procedures to lift and tighten, Atlanta board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. John LeRoy is sponsoring a social media contest for patients and Facebook fans to nominate their favorite area 501(c)(3) non-profit for a chance to win a $1000 donation.
Until May 19th, 2013, fans can enter through Dr. LeRoy’s Facebook page through a post pertaining to the contest or the contest app, found at the top of the page. From the entries, four local charities will be chosen for voting on May 20th, 2013. The charity with the most votes on May 30th, 2013 will receive the $1000 donation from Dr. LeRoy’s office in the name of the nominator.
Contest timeline to enter and vote in Dr. LeRoy’s charity contest:
- May 19th, 2013: Deadline of charity nomination on Dr. LeRoy’s contest post on Facebook or completion of form within Facebook contest app
- May 20th, 2013: Voting begins to select winner out of top four selected charities
- May 28th, 2013: Voting closes on Dr. LeRoy’s Facebook contest app
- May 30th, 2013: Dr. LeRoy announces the winning charity to receive $1,000 donation
To qualify for the $1000 donation from the Atlanta cosmetic surgery practice, non-profits must meet the following criteria:
- Hold a 501 (c)(3) non-profit distinction
- Charities must be in Georgia
- Nominators must be over the age of 18
- Nominators may only suggest one charity
- Charities must contribute to a greater good identifiable through a published mission statement
- Once a charity wins a donation, they may only win once
Last year, local charity The Edge Connection received the donation to put towards their mission of promoting “economic self-sufficiency and self-determination through comprehensive entrepreneurial training targeting low-to-moderate income women and minorities.” Dr. LeRoy hopes that the contest will increase public awareness of the worthy non-profits in Georgia. The Edge Connection won against other extraordinary entries including CASA of North Georgia, CAREing Paws of Georgia, Inc., and TJ and Friends.
“Local support can make such a difference to those passionate about their cause, spurring them on to further their missions and touch lives,” Dr. LeRoy shares of the contest’s purpose. “It is my hope that this simple contest will help give back to those who’ve helped me thrive in a meaningful way while volumizing the voices of such worthy organizations,” he continued.
To show the utmost appreciation to the patients who have allowed Dr. LeRoy to practice his passion for aesthetic medicine for over 20 years, he anticipates additional contests with similar missions to go on a few times throughout the year.
