Throughout the month of August, we're joining forces with our partners at Debenhams, Arta, Corinthian and Princes Square in celebration of amazing women all across Scotland.

We'll be taking some time to recognise the extraordinary women that many of us come across every day, in all walks of life, and we need your help to find them! 

#SheisGDO is all about giving everyday amazing women a bit of recognition for just being themselves.  Generous, Giving, Determined, Daring, Original and Outstanding women who go over and above every day in order to make a difference to the lives of others, sometimes without even knowing it.

We’re looking for five #SheisGDO Women from all walks of life who encompass these qualities.

A #SheisGDO Woman might be a mother, sister, grandmother or friend.  She might be a teacher, nurse, charity worker, survivor, carer or someone who devotes her life to making others happy.

Do you know someone who fits the bill?  Anyone can nominate or be nominated, and absolutely every nomination will be carefully considered. NOMINATE HERE

Along with our partners at Arta, Corinthian, Debenhams and Princes Square, we want to not only recognise the amazing impact that our #SheisGDO Women have on the lives of others.  We want to help you say ‘thank you’ by rewarding our winners with some pretty fantastic prizes.

Not only will our five #SheisGDO Women be invited to enjoy afternoon tea for two at this year's Girls' Day Out Show, they’ll also get a £100 personal shopping experience at Debenhams Silverburn, a two-course meal for two at Darcy’s in Princes Square plus an extra special invitation to a ‘winners only’ cocktail master class at The Corinthian Club, where our five #SheisGDO Women (plus the person who nominated them) can create their own extraordinary cocktails to suit their own amazing personalities.

We’ll be accepting nominations via our website (here) throughout the month of August and our panel of GDO judges will be responsible for selecting one #SheisGDO Woman each week.  We’ll be announcing the weekly winners every Friday throughout August and nominations will close on Thursday 30th August.

If you think you know someone who deserves a bit of recognition for being a #SheisGDO Woman, you can nominate her here, letting us know why you think she would win.

PS. Make sure to join in our #SheisGDO celebration on social media! We’re asking all you lovely ladies to post a photo of yourself blowing a kiss and passing this on by tagging three #SheisGDO Women as an extra special bit of recognition. We’ll also be dedicating our social channels to extraordinary women throughout all of August, so stay tuned to Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for some truly inspiring stories.

Nominations are now OPEN HERE

MOËT & Chandon, the world’s most celebrated champagne marque, has announced Glasgow as the host city in Scotland for its Moët Grand Toast – one of a series of global summer parties celebrating 275 years of the maison.

A pioneer and visionary of his time, Claude Moët, the founder of Moët & Chandon, had the dream to share the magic of Moët with the world. His spirit of generosity and savoir-faire was infectious. Moët & Chandon soon became the champagne of choice for influential personalities of the 18th Century and the icon for every exceptional party.

In recognition of this 275th birthday, a flagship Moët Grand Toast will take place at Glasgow’s The Corinthian Club on Saturday 9th June – and you're invited!

Soundtracking the party across The Terrace and The Brasserie will be a host of DJs including Nick Peacock, David Barbarossa, Naeem and Kevin McCrorie, while flashbulbs will pop for revellers as memorable Moët moments are captured on film as well as within a striking photobooth.

In keeping with Claude Moët’s spirit of generosity, a series of surprise Moët moments await revellers across the day and night, whilst at precisely 17.43pm, in honour of the year the maison was founded, a Moët champagne pyramid fountain will be poured to breathtaking effect in the centre of The Corinthian’s magnificent Brasserie with complimentary toasts for revellers.

The event will take place on Saturday, June 9, and will continue through until 3am with Moët Ice Impérial, also known as ‘La Piscine’ – champagne served on the rocks, as well as with the much-loved Moët Imperial; liberating life, love and friendships in style.

We're offering our followers the chance to get your hands on TWO VIP TICKETS to this EXCLUSIVE event, and if you're a fan of glitz, glamour, celebrities and all things champagne, trust us, this isn't something you want to miss out on!

All you have to do is visit our Facebook page and tag the person you'd love to bring along to this once in a lifetime VIP event!
