Sweet Sixteen: 16th Annual “Best of

Fayetteville” What to Expect

Okay Fayetteville, get ready! It’s a party!!! And, you are invited! Mark your calendars for next Tuesday, Sept. 17 when Up & Coming Weekly hosts our 16th Annual Best of Fayetteville Awards & Recognition Party.

09-11-13-window-cling.gifDon’t miss it!

09-11-13-bof-2013-logo-use.gifThis event is unique for a lot of reasons, but most importantly, it allows us to celebrate Fayetteville’s Best of from people, events, venues, businesses and organizations as determined by the readers of our community newspaper. Come join Tony Chavonne, mayor, City of Fayetteville, Jimmy Keefe, chairman, Cumberland County Board of Commisioners, Doug Peters, president, Fayetteville Regional Chamber of Commerce, me and my staff as we celebrate those who make Fayetteville and Cumberland County a great place to live, work and play.

The party is hosted by Josh and Tonia Collin’s at their new restaurant and sports bar The TapHouse in historic downtown Fayetteville. Don Chase, of WKML, everyone’s favorite radio personality will join the fun as the celebrity host for the evening. If that isn’t enough, there is plenty of food, music, prizes and surprises as we recognize the 2013 Best of Fayetteville winners. Be there!

This is our biggest event of the year and the 16th Annual Best of Fayetteville edition of Up & Coming Weekly is not only our biggest and most read edition of the year, it’s the most valuable to the winners and the community. The Sept. 18 edition is distributed and used throughout the coming year to promote the “best of the best” Fayetteville/Cumberland County businesses, organizations and venues to visitors and newcomers to our community. In addition, this special edition is posted online for the entire year and the winner’s listings and ads are all linked back to their home websites. Think of it as your guaranteed and reliable source for local information. Like a Better Business Bureau directory and Angie’s List all rolled into one — only exclusive to Fayetteville. This is your invitation to come and experience excellence.

We know there has been a lot of confusion this year with several commercial, generic online companies claiming “Best of” recognitions. Don’t buy it.

There is only one sanctioned Best of Fayetteville and you will recognize the businesses that have achieved the honor by looking for these logos and symbols at their businesses or in their advertising.

In closing, let me say that good things last so join us on Tuesday, Sept. 17, and see why this is Up & Coming Weekly’s 16th Annual Best of Fayetteville Awards Party. See ya there! Thank you for reading Up & Coming Weekly community newspaper. Also, a special thanks to all our Best of Fayetteville Sponsors:
