2nd Place - Ruth Coble - $100 Triad Goodwill Gift Card

Following public voting December 1 - 18 on Triad Goodwill’s Facebook page, a panel of judges selected the top three Ugly Holiday Sweaters from the 10 submissions with the most Facebook votes. The judging panel consisted of Jonelle Davis from the News & Record, Triad Goodwill Executive Assistant (and employee Ugly Sweater Contest winner) Sue Fannin and Triad Goodwill VP of Marketing and Development Chris Gorham. The judging panel also congratulates Brian Beck as an honorable mention (it was close) and Ashley Stone for having the prettiest Ugly Sweater!

To see all 14 entries, visit the photo gallery on Triad Goodwill’s Facebook page. You may be inspired, horrified and delighted. At least 75% of the items used to create each ugly sweater came from Triad Goodwill stores in Alamance, Caswell, Guilford, Randolph and Rockingham Counties, North Carolina.
