Awards

The entire evening is about recognizing members of our community (both individuals and commercial) who go above and beyond to make our neighborhood safe, welcoming, fun, and memorable. What better way to show our appreciation for those our friends and neighbors than through The Irvies?

Awards nominees will be selected from activities and events found in Irvington and on the Irvington Neighbors Facebook Page. Once nominees are selected via social media, the Irvington community must vote for their nominees in person at select businesses. Individual ballot boxes will be placed at local Irvington businesses and whereabouts will be announced on IDO’s pages, so residents can seek out and patronize businesses, exposing these organizations to increased traffic, and vice versa residents to businesses they may have been unaware existed. Winners are chosen by the number of ballots they receive, announced at the event, and presented with a trophy during The Irvies.

Categories, locations, and nominees will be humorously announced, recorded, and promoted on IDO and Irv Facebook pages, culminating with a semi-formal gala fundraising event where guests will be regaled with food & drink, entertainment, and most importantly – awards.
