The kickoff will occur on the patio at Lucky's, located at 111 S. Providence Road. In the event of inclement weather, the event will move inside.  Mayor Bob McDavid, Buffaloe, and Bo Sharon, CEO and founder of Lucky's will be in attendance.

People can nominate businesses and find additional information about the awards on the city's website.
