The Alexandria Chamber of Commerce held its annual Best in Business Awards on Oct. 2, to recognize and celebrate the city’s top businesses.  The Del Ray Business Association was named the 2019 Non-Profit/Association of the Year.

"As a Del Ray resident and former Del Ray Citizens Association president, I have seen tremendous growth in the Del Ray neighborhood, thanks to the great efforts of the Del Ray Business Association," said Mayor Justin Wilson in his nomination letter. "Del Ray is the perfect example of how small, local- and independently-owned businesses, working together with committed neighborhood volunteers, build strong communities."

"Year-round, all events hosted by the Del Ray Business Association serve a dual purpose: to highlight and promote the Del Ray business community and to generate awareness and support for Alexandria non-profits," said Jennifer Ayers, the executive director of ALIVE!.  "The Del Ray Business Association is made up of a thriving group of caring and involved businesses and individuals that work not only for the benefit of its membership, but also for those most in need in the Alexandria community." 

The Del Ray Business Association represents the independently-owned shops, retailers, and businesses in the Del Ray neighborhood of Alexandria. For more information, visit
