The evening of Thursday, March 14 was a big celebration at the pavilion at Laurel Ridge Country Club when all first-place winners of Best of Haywood came together to be recognized and awarded the red-carpet treatment.

Mountaineer readers voted in larger numbers than ever before when it came to voting for their favorite businesses in Haywood County. During the months of ballots online and in the paper listed over 100 categories and asked readers to name their favorite business in each category.

Only first-place winners were invited to the gala, but a special insert is available at and inside the print edition of The Mountaineer on Friday, March 15. The insert lists all first-, second- and third-place winners.

The event was a success, featuring a buffet dinner, cash bar and a dessert table provided by Kandi’s Cakes and Bake Shop in Waynesville.
