Visit Del Ray had its biggest voter turnout yet for the Heart of Del Ray awards and two groups of locals — one business and one organization — walked home with the prize.

The Heart of Del Ray award is dedicated to businesses or places in the community with the most warm and welcoming attitude.

The Dog Store/Your Dog’s Best Friends (2301 Mount Vernon Avenue), a local pet supply store, won one of the hearts. The other went to the Alexandria Library’s Duncan Branch/Friends of the Duncan Library.

According to the Visit Del Ray Facebook page:

SO MUCH LOVE in Del Ray! After the biggest turnout (nearly 2,000 votes!) and the closest vote in Heart of Del Ray history, our 16th Heart of Del Ray is extra sweet — with TWO winners! Congrats to The Dog Store/Your Dog’s Best Friends and Alexandria Library’s Duncan Branch/Friends of Duncan Library!
