Voting has ended for the 2024 BEST OF WESTERN WAKE and BEST OF RALEIGH Diamond Awards. Thanks to everyone who voted! We will publish the results in our January/February 2024 issues.
Diamond Award winners must be locally owned (with very few exceptions); therefore, we encourage voting for local businesses as opposed to national chains. We offered categories within the following sections:
Beauty • Health • Fitness
Entertainment + Relaxation
Food + Fare
Booze + Brews
Professional + Educational Services
Those who voted in at least 15 categories and will be entered into a drawing for a $150 gift certificate to Bailey’s Fine Jewelry, a $100 gift certificate to Vinnie’s Steak House and Tavern, a $50 gift certificate to Paragon Theaters, and a pair of tickets to our annual Diamond Awards celebration in January.
Only one set of votes per email address will be counted. If you chose to vote multiple times, only your FIRST set of responses will be exported when we begin the vote count. Also, fraudulent votes cast by fake or randomly generated emails will be deleted from the final results—no exceptions. If we determine that a business—or any person or agency representing a business—is responsible for submitting fake or randomly generated accounts, the business receiving the votes could be disqualified from winning.
Stay tuned for more details! Thanks to our voting prize sponsors: Bailey’s Fine Jewelry, Paragon Theaters and Vinnie’s Steak House and Tavern.
