Submitted By Alexandra Yolman
Sweet Tomatoes is celebrating its 30th Anniversary in July with an essay contest to find and reward its most remarkable patrons. Guests over the age of 18 are asked to draft a 200-word essay describing why they or someone they know is remarkable using a memorable story related to Sweet Tomatoes restaurants. Winners will receive complimentary meals at Sweet Tomatoes and the honor of being named one of "30 Remarkable Guests."
The "30 Remarkable Guests" contest, July 1 through July 31, will be judged by Sweet Tomatoes' Kitchen Cabinet advisory panel, comprised of 10 influential moms from around the country. The essays will be judged on originality and creativity, appropriateness to subject matter, composition and sincerity.
"Maybe you transformed your body by changing your eating habits at Sweet Tomatoes, or maybe you raised money for an important local cause through the company's fundraiser program, or who knows, maybe you met your spouse at one of the restaurants," said Kate Wilkins, a member of the Kitchen Cabinet from San Diego. "We are looking to be inspired by your stories. We can't wait to read them!"
All contestants must be United States residents. Winners will be announced by September 15, 2008. Entries are limited to one sheet of 8.5 inch by 11 inch paper and only one entry per person is allowed.
