We’re very excited to announce that the first place winner of the Treat Yourself to Tillamook Ice Cream Contest is… Marlena, who was nominated by her friend Will! Marlena works at Agesong, an assisted living treatment center, where she goes above and beyond to lift her clients’ spirits. When one of the residents began to lose hope, Marlena decided to inspire her by running a half marathon, while pushing her in a wheelchair for the entire course. When Marlena reached the end of the race, she helped her friend from her wheelchair, and they walked across the finish line together. Marlena will be able to celebrate her amazing accomplishment with an ice cream party pack!
Our second place winner is Karen, who wants to celebrate her farming community’s hard work by hosting a neighborhood party. She describes ranching as a “life of quality and commitment” that deserves to be rewarded with a special treat.
Winning third place is Patricia and her family, who will be celebrating her husband’s graduation from a Master’s program this month. Patricia shared a sweet story about her hard working husband and his dedication to both his studies and their 9 month old baby girl.
With over 3,000 entries, it was so hard to pick just 3 winners, and we want to thank you all for sharing such thoughtful, inspiring stories. Give yourselves a pat on the back and celebrate with a tasty summer treat!
