POINT PLEASANT, W.Va. — Fruth Pharmacy announced the babies chosen to represent the company for 2017 as a Mister and Miss Fruth: Allison Egnor of Winfield, W.Va., daughter of Amanda Egnor; Leland Fugett of Parkersburg, W.Va., son of Mark & Christina Fugett; Cooper Wright of Nelsonville, Ohio, son of Tiffani Deffenbaugh and Josh Wright; and Novaleigh Taylor of Buffalo, W.Va., daughter of Tabitha Taylor.
In an effort to help local baby charities, Fruth Pharmacy hosted an event looking for four babies to be the “baby face” for the company’s advertising. To participate in the event, children had to be 0-36 months of age. There were 166 entrants across the Fruth regional pharmacy chain this year.
Fruth customers helped to collect over $7,000 for local baby charities by participating in the baby event and by making donations in-store.
Each Mister and Miss Fruth will receive a photo package valued at $250. Photos will be featured periodically throughout the year in the company’s circular, Facebook, email, and other marketing items.
Fruth Pharmacy has been a family-owned company for over 64 years. Currently, Fruth Pharmacy has 30 locations in West Virginia, Ohio, and Kentucky.
