Summerfield, NC -- A Summerfield mom got some surprise visitors this morning.
An Energizer representative told Virginia Kassay that she is one of the top ten finalists for a spot in the Energizer keep-going hall of fame. They said it was because of her perseverance and her keep-going attitude that they say has proven that she's like the Energizer bunny.
The Energizer bunny and Virginia's friends and family were on hand to hear that Kassay is one of 10 people making the finals nationwide. Virginia is being recognized for her determination to help her autistic daughter Emily. Virginia uses painting to reach out to Emily and educate others on autism and the power of being positive. Now that she's in the finals, she's on a mission.
She says she's going to find everyone she's ever shook hands with and try to tell them to vote for her and get on the Energizer website.
Voting starts today. People can vote once a day per day until July 25th. To cast your vote, click here.
