Reminder: Deadline for ‘Heart of Del Ray’ 2019 Nominations TODAY!

The “Heart of Del Ray Award” is annually presented by the Del Ray Business Association in Alexandria, Virginia to the business that the community feels serves as the heart and soul of Del Ray.

On February 1st, Visit Del Ray will announce the 5 finalists and open up voting by the community.  Before the voting process to select the winner begins, they want to hear from YOU. They would like to get YOUR nomination for who you think should be one of the five businesses on the ballot. The Del Ray Business Association Board will then take into consideration all the nominations and comments in order to determine the five finalists.

Nominations should be based on which business best demonstrates their warm and welcoming attitude to the community/customers, their commitment and generosity to the community, and to their overall contribution to what makes Del Ray the best place in the world to live, work and shop!  In other words, what business warms your “heart” when you here its name?
