Sara Bareilles to help honor Mesquite mom
Bareilles will be in town on March 7 to present a check to the Poteet High School marching band.
On behalf of Stremicks Heritage Foods/8th Continent Soymilk, singer/songwriter Sara Bareilles will present a check for $10,000 earmarked for music education to the Poteet High School Marching Band on Wednesday, March 7 at Poteet High.
Mesquite resident Marybeth Mank was the winner of 8th Continent Soymilk’s “Nice Job, Mom: We Rock” contest, a national campaign that honored moms who keep their families’ health and happiness in perfect harmony. The contest invited mothers across the U.S. to submit the tips and tricks that make them rock star moms. Winners were determined by company representatives and by the public, who voted for the entries online. Mank was awarded with a girls’ night out fit for a celebrity that included massages, dinner, and a night on the town for her and her friends, as well as a $10,000 donation in her name to the music education program at a school of her choice.
The Grammy-nominated Bareilles served as the face of the promotion, which was a follow-up to 8th Continent’s “Draw Your Own Sun” campaign (focused on arts education) and a precursor to its “Lookin’ Good, Feelin’ Good” sweepstakes, a program for which entries are presently being submitted at www.8thcontinent.com. The “Lookin’ Good, Feelin’ Good” campaign will culminate with a total donation of $75,000 towards physical education programs across 80 schools nationwide.
