Memories Begin Here Week 2 Winner!

General | Sep 2nd, 2010

Modell’s would like to congratulate Wendy E. of Odenton, MD for being voted the week two winner of the Memories Begin Here contest on Facebook! Wendy’s entry Skater Girl has won a $500 Modell’s gift card. She has designated another $500 Modell’s gift card to be given to the Gardens Figure Skating Club of Maryland.

Wendy and her daughter Regan, 9, met with the Arundel Mills Modell’s manager Dan Kearns, and Community Ambassador Jamal Jones for the gift card presentation. The second $500 gift card award was then presented to Chris, president of the Gardens Figure Skating Club in Maryland. Chris’ daughter Nomi, 15, came along for the presentation. She and Regan skate together, and have even completed some duets! Below, please find a photo from the presentation, and Wendy’s winning entry and photo:









My daughter was the youngest individual skater (age 8 ) in the 2008 US Figure Skating National Showcase competition. Her Light Entertainment program was one that she chose as a tribute to the victims of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. We lived in Houston, TX during those storms and her life was forever changed (really all of our lives) by what she saw and experienced. Her character for her program was the Mardi Gras Queen and she skated to “When The Saints Go Marching In”. She competed against much older skaters that had much bigger jumps – but she skated her heart out and placed 2nd in the preliminary round to make the finals and 8th out of 39 skaters overall. It was an amazing moment that everyone who was there will always remember – this little kid skating her heart out as a tribute to all her friends in the Gulf Coast area. This year at Showcase, people remembered her as the Mardi Gras Queen.
