We've said it before, when you support the local businesses that sponsor The Batavian, you're helping us continue to bring you the news about Genesee County you enjoy.

We're starting a new feature to highlight a few of The Batavian sponsors each week and remind readers of the importance of supporting local businesses.

Think Local - Buy Local - Be Local!

Buy Local -- Support yourself: Several studies have shown that when you buy from an independent, locally owned business, rather than a nationally owned business, significantly more of your money is used to make purchases from other local businesses, service providers and farms -- continuing to strengthen the economic base of the community.

This week's featured businesses:

VALLE JEWELERS -- has been proudly serving Western New York since 1951. For three generations, the Valle family has been dedicated to offering excellent service. Our goal is to consistently provide our customers with great selection and value. Valle Jewelers offers a tremendous selection of diamond jewelry, unique sterling silver jewelry, hundreds of CHAMILIA beads, and fine gifts. With two full-time bench jewelers, Valle Jewelers offers the security and convenience of ON-SITE repairs. Stop in today to browse our selection or turn some of your GOLD into CASH! Visit us online: http://www.vallejewelersbatavia.com

TURNBULL -- We are locally owned and operated with locations on 50 Franklin St., Batavia, and 59 Genesee St., Avon. We use industry standard flat-rate pricing – there are no hidden fees. Our gas furnace tune-ups and inspections start at only $60. Call us today at 343-2005 or 226-8160 to make an appointment that works with your schedule.

Both winners became eligible by Liking the respective businesses on Facebook and then registering for the contest.

Batavia's Jenna Hubbard is making a splash in the modeling world and Next Level Fitness is proud to be part of it and you can help her, too. Hubbard recently competed in a modeling contest in Buffalo and after five weeks of models competing to make it to the finals, Hubbard has advanced to the final six.

The model search is sponsored by one of Buffalo's largest nightclubs, Bayou, and hosted by Kiss 98.5 radio personality Tony Mamaluke. Each week 15-20 new girls competed for a chance to advance, and there has been a total of upwards of 100 girls competing. This past Thursday, Hubbard had her chance to shine as she surpassed the 17 week five contestants and advanced.

The contest is scored on a four-part system with part of the score being Facebook "LIKE" votes. Next Level is encouraging everyone to click "LIKE" and "SHARE" on her photo to help her win. Next Level has helped with her a gym membership to stay in shape and she has also been tanning there as well, so she is able to look her best for the competition.

"This is a great opportunity for me and I want to thank Next Level for sponsoring me and making this possible!" Hubbard said.

She is the only finalist from Genesee County and is competing for the title of Miss Bayou Buffalo, $500 cash, and a photo shoot to be featured on the nightclub's billboards in Downtown Buffalo.

If she wins, she plans to donate part of the winnings to "Austin's Army" to benefit Pembroke senior Austin Heineman who was recently diagnosed with a rare, aggressive form of childhood cancer.

The finals are scheduled for this Thursday night and the Facebook voting ends at 8 p.m. that night. To vote for Jenna, click LIKE on the photo here: http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10150756177625759&set=t.100000085482467&type=3&theater

THANK YOU BATAVIA!

Thank you for being a great community to live in and do business in. And thanks to all those who help us to better serve our clients. 

If not for the great service of the Post Office, the banks, the brokers and the attorneys who help us with our clients, and the police who watch out for us late at night, and the DPW for treating our street like their street, and the restaurants for keeping us fed and smiling, and our business neighbors for helping and caring, we wouldn’t be successful.

Especially, thank you to each and every client for allowing us to serve you.

Batavia is a GREAT place to live and work.

We are proud to be Batavians!
