Mustang Helps Garage-Girls 2014 Ultimate Biker Makeover
Once again this year, Mustang was proud to join with Sara Liberte and the Garage-Girls Ultimate Biker Makeover program. Although we shared an update on the winner via social media, there is more to the story, much more.
Garage-Girls 2014 Ultimate Biker Makeover, Chris Gibbany of Harrison, Arkansas, was among 84 contestants who sent in a 600-word essay describing why they were most in need of a Garage-Girls Ultimate Biker Makeover. Her essay touched upon her sacrifices and commitment to “hunker down” and put herself through school in order to open new career opportunities.
“We received more submissions for the 2014 Garage-Girls Ultimate Biker Makeover Contest than for any other previous contest,” said Garage-Girls marketing coordinator, Sara Liberte. “It was definitely a challenge choosing a winner among so many great entries.” Of course Sara is quick to credit the sponsors, and we were honored to be included. “We want to thank GEICO as well as our other sponsors for their commitment to make this contest possible. Frankly, there would be no Garage-Girls Ultimate Biker Makeover Contest without their continued support.”
As the 2014 Ultimate Biker Makeover winner, Gibbany is enjoying a multitude of prizes, including new shoes from Harley-Davidson® Footwear, a brand new jacket and matching gloves from Roland Sands; a Speed & Strength helmet from J&P Cycles; a cleaning kit from Wizards Products; a case of synthetic oil from Spectro; clothing from Hijinx Apparel and a set of Avon tires. Last but not least, a set of saddlebags from Mustang… We offered a seat of her choice, but she really wanted the saddlebags.
“Mustang sent me the saddlebags I picked out, PLUS they sent me another box with T-shirts, hats, pens, stickers and a zippered tote bag,” Chris told Garage-Girls after getting her “care” package. “Mustang really went all out, especially since they swapped in bags instead of a seat.”
Chris also got the jacket and gloves from Roland Sands Design. “Beautiful brown, with pockets inside and places to put the Kevlar inserts which I would like to get. The gloves are black and fit perfectly. It’s just like Christmas around here. And seeing how we don’t “do” Christmas, makes it just that more exciting. I told the UPS guy to “keep ‘em coming”. I hope to ride tomorrow (raining today) and try out the new jacket. Husband really likes it and says it will be my “new look” to come out riding the Panhead!
Thanks so much Sara, Garage-Girls and all the sponsors ~ Chris
“Chris puts a lot of miles on her motorcycle and we wanted to make sure she has the latest and safest riding equipment,” said Liberte. To read more about Chris Gibbany’s story and for more information on the 2014 Ultimate Biker Makeover, please visit www.garage-girls.com.
