    The Del Ray Business Association presented the 2022 Heart of Del Award to Lena's Wood-Fired Pizza & Tap on Feb. 11.  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.


         "The Yates family has been a part of Del Ray since 1964," said Del Ray Business Association board member Gayle Reuter.  "They've always been such an important part of Del Ray, always decorating, always winning landscape awards, and has given back to the community in so many ways -- especially these past couple of years with COVID. ... Everytime we put out a call for help, Lena's is always there supporting us.  This award reflects how much you care about your neighbors, and the community itself."

         "It's not just the innovations and the experience -- there's something special -- there's so much heart put into all of your businesses, and being family-owned adds to it. People feel it," said Del Ray Business Association President Dr. Lauren Fisher. "We're very very grateful to have you as a part of the community."

         Lena’s is owned and operated by Jason and Loren Yates.  Named for the matriarch of the Yates family, the restaurant opened in 2015 at Yates Corner, which also includes Yates Dry Cleaning, Yates 7-Eleven, and Yates Automotive Service Center.

         Patrons cited Lena's thoughtful dining experiences throughout COVID; for many, a visit to Lena's Oasis marked their return to in-person dining during the pandemic. "Lena's didn't just put up a tent with tables outside," wrote one nomination. "They recognized people needed an escape during COVID, so they created an elevated dining experience -- and it changes with the seasons!" Another nomination noted their involvement in community events: "Lena's always opens their door to the community, sends pizza for volunteers, sponsors events, and is always there to support our community."

          Over 1,000 neighbors, friends and customers participated in online voting. Past winners of the award include A Show of Hands, Jen Walker of 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, Del Ray Cafe, Pork Barrel BBQ/Holy Cow/the sushi bar, and Taqueria Poblano, Ms. Preeti's 7-11, and Dolce & Bean.  A business cannot win the award multiple years.

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

    In recognition of her 36 years of service to the City of Alexandria and the Del Ray community, retiring Alexandria City Council Member Del Pepper has been selected as the Grand Marshal of the 46th Annual Alexandria Turkey Trot.

    "No one shows up for our Alexandria small businesses, non-profits, and community events more than Del Pepper," said Del Ray Business Association President Lauren Fisher. "In this season of gratitude, we wanted to recognize and thank Del for her long-time support of the Alexandria Turkey Trot, and for her life-long dedication to making the City of Alexandria the best place to live and work."

    A former social worker, Pepper was elected to the Alexandria City Council in 1985, after serving as an aide to then-Mayor Charles E. Beatley. She served as vice mayor from 1996-1997, 2003-2006, and 2007-2009. She co-chairs the Beauregard Street Corridor Task Force, the Alexandria-Arlington Task Force on the Waste-To-Energy Plant and the Welfare Reform Committee (Alexandria Works!). She is active with the Commission on Aging, Commission on Information Technology, Facilities Naming Committee, and the Council of Governments Air Quality Committee and Board of Directors. She was recently elected Corporate President of the COG. She is a member of the Northern Virginia Regional Commission, where she also chairs the Regional Resources Committee; she also serves on the boards of numerous Alexandria non-profits.

    A Thanksgiving morning tradition, the Alexandria Turkey Trot will take place on Thursday, Nov. 28 at 9 a.m. This fast, flat, USATF-certified course runs through the heart of Del Ray, and is the Mid-Atlantic's premiere Turkey Trot, featuring over 5,000 runners, including some of the fastest elite runners on the east coast.

    The five-mile run/walk goes through the heart of Del Ray, starting and ending at George Washington Middle School at the corner of Braddock Road and Mount Vernon Avenue. The event is Metro accessible to the Braddock Road Metro Station. Dogs and strollers are welcome, and have their own starting area.

    In the spirit of the holiday, runners and spectators are encouraged to bring non-perishable food items on race day to support ALIVE!, a non-profit serving those in need in the City of Alexandria. During the last in-person Turkey Trot in 2019, the event raised over $6,000 to support ALIVE!'s Food Program; participants also donated over 2,000 pounds of food for ALIVE. The Alexandria Turkey Trot is also the primary fundraiser for the Del Ray Business Association, which hosts a wide range of community events year-round and represents the independently-owned restaurants, retailers, and businesses in the Del Ray neighborhood of Alexandria.

    Pre-registration is highly recommended. For complete information on the race and to register, visit www.alexandriaturkeytrot.com.
