In celebration of the Fall fashion season, 944 Detroit and Urban Optiques are giving away another fab pair of couture sunglasses: This time a pair of Special Edition Badgley Mischka Boyd acetate aviators with 18K white gold couture lenses valued at $780 dollars.
A unisex sunglass, the Boyd has been spotted on everyone from Brad Pitt to singer Kelly Rowland to models Heidi Klum and Alessandra Ambrosio. While the Boyd is celeb favorite, no one has yet been seen in the Special Edition version of the Boyd we are giving away this month. So if you win the Boyd, you’ll be setting the trend here.
Entering for a chance to win these lux sunglasses from Badgley Mischka Eyewear, Urban Optiques and 944 Detroit is easy: Just click over to the 944 Detroit Swag page and fill out the short registration form (it’s only a couple of fields.) Not only will you be entered in the sunglass giveaway, but you’ll also have a chance at winning a print by emerging local artist Mark Sarmel.
As any parent knows, equipment — whether for team athletics, individual sports or even music — is expensive. And in tougher economic times, it can be harder than ever to outfit a team or child with the necessary gear to participate.
So when our contact lens rep from CooperVision stopped by this week and told us about a new grant program CooperVision is sponsoring as part of their “Life is a Contact Sport” initiative, we were instantly on-board with promoting it — especially since we know that so many of our clients have children who participate in athletics, group sports and band.
Here’s how it works: CooperVision’s “Life is a Contact Sport” program will award ten $2,500 dollar “Gear Up Grants” to help winning teams, individual athletes/performers or communities “gear up” this season. The winners decide what gear they need.
To enter, all you have to do is have your teen register and submit their story in video or a series of photos on the CooperVision “Life is a Contact Sport” Gear Up Grant website. The subject of the story should be why your teen, their team, or the community should win a Gear Up Grant and what they would do with the money if they win.
Entries have to be submitted by September 30, 2010 and judging to choose the top 30 finalists takes place in early October. The finalists will then be posted to the “Life is A Contact Sport” website on October 18th, and visitors to the site will then get to vote on who they think should win the 10 grants.
Winners will be announced in early December.
What’s especially cool about this promotion is that CooperVision made it very inclusive: The Gear Up Grants don’t just apply to athletics — but other activities such as music or dance. So if you need to outfit your child or community band with instruments, you can apply for the grant as well.
Plus, any team member or performer who wears contact lenses or glasses will also be outfitted with CooperVision contact lenses for a full year. Submitting your story is a snap – just visit the CooperVision website to enter.
We’d love to see one of our patients win one of these 10 grants. Time is running on out this grant cycle so if you’re ready to Gear Up, get moving with your story!
In celebration of 944 Magazine’s debut of “Detroit Swag” this month, Urban Optiques, 944 Detroit and Loree Rodkin eyeCouture by Sama are giving away a fab pair of Special Edition Loree Rodkin Hunter Sunglasses featuring 18K gold lenses by Sama.

To top it all off, Sama has luxed-up these already amazing aviators by adding Special Edition 18K white gold lenses.
The Special Edition Loree Rodkin Hunter retails for over $1,200 dollars, but we’re going to put one lucky person in this fantastic, rock-star sunglass for free. All you have to do is visit the 944 Detroit Swag site and register to win.
The winner will be announced in the August Edition of 944 Detroit Magazine.
