“We are so proud and honored to be celebrating our tenth anniversary this year within this industry and would not be where we are today without the help, guidance and support of our friends and colleagues,” remarked Ashley Burgess Gall, Senior MARCOM Manager for Laura Burgess Marketing.

“As a small, boutique family-run business, we understand the struggles a young brand faces when they first enter the market; in fact, we specialize in this. With our contest, we want to provide the opportunity to help a young brand with an innovative idea, but perhaps a tight pocketbook, with the opportunity to gain the exposure their product and brand needs to break the barriers of entry into this marketplace.”
