SAN DIEGO, May 12, 2021 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Soapy Joe's was named the winner of a Gold Stevie® Award in the PR Campaign of the Year category in the 19th Annual American Business Awards® for its Tunnel of Love 2020 campaign.
Soapy Joe's Tunnel of Love 2020 campaign took place on Valentine's Day and brought the San Diego community together by celebrating love, while Soapy Joe's biggest fans were married on site at Soapy Joe's! The wedding ceremony featured a festive 50-foot celebration aisle created by turning the overhead vacuum booms into ceremonial arches with LED lights and flowers, and a layered blue and white runner under foot. Couples walked down the aisle accompanied by acoustic guitar towards a 15' wide blue and white balloon arch, with Soapy's own mascot as ceremonial ring bearer.
"Soapy Joe's is honored to be a Gold award recipient of the 2021 Stevie Awards," said Lorens Attisha, CEO of Soapy Joe's. "Our local community is so important to us, and to have the ability to tie the knot at one of our locations was immensely special."
More than 3,800 nominations – a record number - from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted this year for consideration in a wide range of categories, including Startup of the Year, Executive of the Year, Best New Product or Service of the Year, Marketing Campaign of the Year, Virtual Event of the Year, and App of the Year, among others. More than 250 professionals worldwide participated in the judging process to select this year's Stevie Award winners.
Soapy Joe's received the Gold Stevie Award in the PR Campaign of the Year category for events and observances. The American Business Awards are the U.S.A.'s premier business awards program. All organizations operating in the U.S.A. are eligible to submit nominations – public and private, for-profit and nonprofit, large and small. Nicknamed the Stevies for the Greek word meaning "crowned," the awards will be virtually presented to winners during a live event on Wednesday, June 30.
"The American economy continues to show its resilience, and as we're poised on the beginning of what should be a phenomenal period of growth, we celebrate the remarkable achievements of a wide range of organizations and people over the past 18 months," said Stevie Awards president Maggie Gallagher. "This year's Stevie-winning nominations in The American Business Awards are testament to the ingenuity, the commitment, the passion, the adaptability, and the creativity of the American people. We look forward to celebrating this year's winners during our virtual ceremony on June 30."
