+ Mary Kay directors earn new wheels
Three independent Mary Kay sales directors earned keys to their very own Mary Kay pink Cadillacs.
GreyHawk Landing resident Ruth Everhart, as well as Orenda Hunniford, of Panther Ridge, and Jenan Wood, of Bradenton, were awarded their new cars during a celebration at the Tropical Cadillac dealership in Bradenton. A party followed at the Pink Studio of Lakewood Ranch.
“It’s so exciting,” said Everhart, who has earned two pink Cadillacs previously. “This is my favorite one of all, because I’m back into an SRX. This one has all sorts of fun bells and whistles. To be rewarded like that is unbelievable.”
