Online voting competition helps support National Breast Cancer Foundation
ALMONT — Customers at Sherri’s Barber Shop already know she’s fabulous, but the longtime resident and business owner is hoping area residents will agree.
Master Barber Sherri Rodgers is hoping to win big in the national Fab Over 40 competition, which aims to celebrate women who’ve reached that milestone age and beyond.
The winner ill receive $40,000 in cash, a two-page feature in NewBeauty magazine, and a spa vacation in Scottsdale, Arizona. The Fab Over 40 experience is sponsored by NewBeauty, its brands TestTube and BeautyPass, and MDSkin Lounge. The contest offers an opportunity for women age 40 and up to rally their family, friends, colleagues and community to vote for them online to keep them in the game.
Rodgers, 57, has already made it through the first few rounds of voting, and currently sits in the number two spot in her group. If she remains within the top 10, she’ll move to the next level of competition.
Votes for Rodgers also offer an opportunity to support the National Breast Cancer Foundation and its Help Women Now campaign, which aims at providing early detection, education, and support services to those affected by breast cancer.
Participants can choose a ‘Hope Vote,’ and donate $1 per vote to the cause; choose the ‘free daily vote’ with a Facebook login or both. Special ‘two for one’ Hope Vote offers are ongoing throughout the contest.
Rodgers, 57, believes that women can be role models at any age, and he strives to give back and make a difference in the community she adores.
“I just love living and working in Almont, and I love to support a great cause and have fun while doing it,” she says.

If she continues to advance in the national competition, Rodgers will move onto quarterfinals, semi-finals and finals.
Should she take home the top prize, Rodgers says the first thing she’ll do is purchase a newer car. She’ll also treat her kids to a Hawaiian vacation and donate to St Jude Children’s Research.
