It’s a Party and You Are Invited
In just a few days one of the biggest parties of the year is going to happen — and, you are invited. Yes, that’s right. We want you to help us celebrate. So grab your party clothes, bring your horns and confetti. On Tuesday, Sept. 16, Up & Coming will unveil the winners of the Best of Fayetteville. You aren’t going to want to miss it!
Celebrating one of Up & Coming Weekly’s biggest and most celebrated editions and events of the year — The 17th Annual Best of Fayetteville Awards — has become a tradition in Fayetteville. Each year it gets a little bit bigger and better and this year is no exception. So mark your calendars and plan to be our guests at It’z Entertainment City from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. as we celebrate the people, businesses, services and organizations that have been recognized by our readers and the Fayetteville community as being the “Best of the Best”.
Join us for the music, food, fun, prizes and surprises as we honor those who have helped shape and define our community. Join special guests Fayetteville Mayor Nat Robertson, Doug Peters of the Fayetteville Regional Chamber of Commerce, Cumberland County officials, and, of course, our winners, as we come together in recognition of these local assets that impact our everyday lives.
This very special edition of Up & Coming Weekly is our biggest, most popular and most read edition of the year. From a credibility and reliability point of view, we describe the “Best of” edition as a local Fayetteville resource that combines the attributes and characteristics of JC Powers, the Better Business Bureau and Angie’s List. This is why we post the Best of Fayetteville edition online and use it year round to showcase Fayetteville and Cumberland County to our guests and visitors.
If you can’t attend the party make sure you pick up a copy at any one of our 500 locations across Cumberland County. Make sure you get it early, because these issues don’t stay in the stands long. In fact, they fly off them. Once you’ve read the issue and found out what businesses have earned the trust and respect of your neighbors, take time to pay them a visit. Look for the colorful window decals or the prestigious gold and white plaques that designate a business or organization as the “best of the best” and congratulate them on the accomplishment. The party celebration is not just to recognize and celebrate the winners of the 17th Annual Best of Fayetteville reader survey. It is to also thank our readers and community leaders for their commitment to enhancing our community and our quality of life.
This survey and the event itself is always a huge undertaking with lots of moving parts. It would be impossible to execute it without the help and assistance of many people who practically guarantee its success. This includes our sponsors, our staff of talented and dedicated writers, editor’s, designers, marketing consultants, distribution drivers and administration. To get out the Best of Fayetteville, it truly takes a village.
This is a very exciting time of the year for us. Please note that Up & Coming Weekly is extremely proud to be Fayetteville’s community newspaper. We cherish every moment we are allowed to bring to the forefront those people, places, businesses, services and organizations that make this community a great place to live, work and raise a family. Thank you for reading Up & Coming Weekly. We look forward to seeing you and celebrating with you on Sept. 16.
