Like mother, like daughter

Weekly celebrates Mother's Day with its annual look-alike contest

"You look just like your mother!"

All women love to hear someone say that to their daughters. And many daughters like it, too.

To celebrate mothers in Pleasanton, the Weekly once again held its annual Mother-Daughter Look-Alike contest, which drew 16 entries. We had our readers vote online for the winners, and this year there was a tie, with the honors going to:

* Sangita Patel and Avni, 10, who attends Hearst Elementary

* Sheila Cross and her daughter Cassie, 14, who is a freshman at Foothill High

They will enjoy $100 gift certificates to Strizzi's restaurant.

Close runner-ups were Leslie Morissey and her daughter Kealy, who is in the second grade at Frederiksen Elementary in Dublin.

Thank you to everyone who participated in the contest. And thank you to the 970 people who voted.

Happy Mother's Day!
