Heart of Del Ray Award - VOTE NOW

The “Heart of Del Ray Award” is annually presented by the Del Ray Business Association during the Valentine’s Day holiday to the business that serves as the heart and soul of Del Ray. We want to thank everyone that nominated a business -- over 35 wonderful businesses were nominated making it very tough to narrow it down to just five. Many of you also expressed your continued strong support for past winners which is a tremendous compliment to them and reaffirms how lucky we are to have such great businesses in Del Ray.

We are excited that you, our neighbors, customers and friends will determine the winner of this prestigious award. Selection 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?

We congratulate and are honored to list the following five businesses that have been nominated for the “2016 Heart of Del Ray Award”:
1)      Affordable Signs & Banners
2)      Caboose Cafe & Bakery
3)      Holy Cow/Pork Barrel BBQ   
4)      Taqueria Poblano
5)      Truly-Life Eco Gifts

Each person is only allowed one vote by emailing  If we get more than one vote per email, none will qualify & be counted.   You can vote anytime between now and 5:00 pm on Wednesday, February 10th.  Once votes are calculated and a winner is determined, a large heart shaped award will be displayed on the winning business on Friday, February 12th to greet them for the Valentine’s Day holiday. We will also notify the various list serves of the winner so you can stop by and congratulate the winner.
Last year over , 1,600 neighbors, friends and customers voted so we encourage you to tell your neighbors to be sure and support their favorite nominee. A business can only win once and we congratulate our past winners which include: A Show of Hands, Jen Walker McEnearney Associates, Bobi Bomar Homes of Alexandria, The Neighborhood Pharmacy of Del Ray, Greener Cleaner of Del Ray, Del Ray Pizzeria, and Mind the Mat.

Happy Valentine’s Day & be sure to shop for that special Valentine at one of Del Ray’s many businesses!!!
