Please vote online today for “THE BEST” in over 20 categories in the 1st Annual Best of Davie Awards!
We all know just how special our community is—and judging from all the new businesses and enterprises choosing to locate here it seems the word is starting to spread.
Now the Davie County Chamber of Commerce is giving you a chance to highlight the businesses, services, and destinations that make Davie County so appealing with its 1st Annual “Best of Davie Awards.” This new component of the Chamber’s iSHOPDAVIE initiative offers residents and visitors alike the chance to nominate and vote for the “cream of the crop” among the county’s business and non-profit sectors. Cast your votes today at www.ishopdavie.com.
Davie County Chamber of Commerce President Carolyn McManamy sees the awards as a means for residents to let folks know why they’ve chosen Davie County as their favorite place to live, work, shop, dine, and conduct business. “This is just another way for us to make a connection with iSHOPDAVIE and give the community an opportunity to share what they love most about Davie County,” says McManamy.
Vote Now – Voting Ends January 25
Besides showcasing everything from voters’ favorite BBQ to beloved family destinations, McManamy hopes the competition will be a fun way for residents and businesses to connect in a special way. “We hope businesses will take to social media and invite their customers to nominate them,” she says. “And we want individuals to rally together and show support for others in the community who are deserving of a Best of Davie designation. What better way to show appreciation for a business, organization or person in the community than to nominate them for a Best of Davie award?”
Now through January 25, you may nominate and vote for “candidates” in twenty different categories that fall into roughly five classifications. Foodies can point their friends to the best cheeseburgers, pizza, and BBQ. Services that are featured in the balloting include Doctor/Healthcare Provider, Real Estate/Realtor, Hair Salon/Barber, Photographer, Band/Musician, and Fitness Venue. Shopping and Lifestyle categories are comprised of Family Destination, Golf Venue, Shopping/Retail Venue, Vineyard, and the Best Place to be Active. And to make the playing field level for newcomers, the Chamber has also created a “Rookie of the Year” award to spotlight the Best New Business.
Vote for Your Favorite Community Resources
But the awards aren’t just about Davie County’s thriving shopping and business community—they’re also intended to highlight special people whose services play a key role in Davie County’s high quality-of-life rating. You are encouraged to make nominations for Civic/Non-Profit of the Year, Teacher/Educator, Public Service, Local Facebook Group/Page, and Elected Official.
