About the Sass Choice Awards

The ultimate LADIES CHOICE AWARDS! The Sass Choice Awards give our readers a chance to nominate and
vote for their favorite local businesses in a variety of categories. Women excel in the gift of gab, and word-of-mouth marketing is a HUGE driving force when it comes to impact and influence of our buying decisions. The Sass Choice Awards allows women to share their experiences, suggestions, and referrals to each other — but on a much larger scale! It’s the perfect way to get your business promoted to thousands of female buyers in our community!
