Simplicity Décor has partnered up with two local non-profit organizations for the GelGems for A Cause contest! The organizations that are involved in this friendly competition for a cause are The Hope Heart Institute and American Cancer Society Relay for Life.
Their murals will be displayed for one week in the front store windows, from April 21-28th. Photos of both window designs were submitted to the GelGems website, where they will be judged by online voting! Voting will take place May 7-13th. The grand prize will be $1000 cash donation to charity, runner up is $500, and second runner up is $250. All entries will be featured on GelGems website at www.gelgems.com. So please help these local organizations by casting your vote to your most favorite mural.
The Hope Heart Institute is a local non-profit that is focused on making heart disease– the leading cause of death in America– more beatable, treatable and preventable. The mural will be dedicated to women’s heart health, in celebration of Mother’s Day and National Women’s Health Week.
