Best of Atlanta: Community

Toy Party

Best Charity Benefit
Toy Party

Long considered the close of Atlanta’s social season, Toy Party, put on by For the Kid in all of Us (www.forthekid.org), collects thousands of toys and dollars to provide children with holiday gifts. The Joining Hearts Pool Party (www.joininghearts.org), scheduled for July 21, nabbed second place as it raises funds to support housing for people with HIV. Atlanta’s HRC Gala Dinner (www.atlantahrcdinner.org), a black-tie event in May which raises money for the national Human Rights Campaign, finished third.

Best of Atlanta: Internet

After two months of online balloting and more than 20,000 votes cast, we present the best of the best — our inaugural Best of Atlanta winners.

It all started back at the beginning of May, when we asked you, our readers, to nominate your favorites for dozens of awards in the categories of Community, People, Nightlife, Dining, Retail, Pet Services, Internet, and Outside Atlanta.

The top three finalists — or more, in the case of a tie — in each category made it through to the next round of voting. For the month of June, a multiple-choice ballot asked you to pick among the finalists for who really represents the finest in LGBT Georgia.

Thanks to everyone who voted, and congratulations to all of the worthy winners and runners up.
