The Del Ray Business Association presented Bill Blackburn and "Mango" Mike Anderson of Pork Barrel BBQ, Holy Cow, and the sushi bar with its 2018 "Heart of Del Award."  The annual award, given to the business that represents the heart and soul of Del Ray, is determined by a public vote of neighbors and customers. 

     "Besides great food, they are one of the most community-minded businesses in the DC area," read one nomination.  "Holy Cow donates a quarter of every burger to area non-profits, They even organized a fundraiser for Al's, one of their competitors, and they rent a flatbed to cut down and donate Del Ray's gigantic Christmas tree every year. No matter the event, they pitch in by volunteering or sponsoring. They are what makes Del Ray so special."     

       Close to 1,000 neighbors, friends and customers participated in online voting. Past winners of the award 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, Mind the Mat Pilates & Yoga, Caboose Cafe, and Del Ray Cafe.  A business cannot win the award multiple years.
