Celebrate the Winners of the 2020 Brickies –Online

Charles Allen addresses the crowd at the 2018 Brickie awards.

The evening of Thursday, Dec. 3, the community will gather –online, this time!– to celebrate the holidays and the many amazing Ward 6 individuals and organizations at the 2020 Brickie Awards.

“There’s no way a measly little global pandemic can stop the Brickies… from happening safely and virtually,” is how the office of Councilmember Charles Allen (Ward 6-D) put it.

It will be a shorter evening event, taking place from 8 to 9 p.m., a moment to uplift and recognize some of the neighbors in Ward 6 who have gone above and beyond this year.

So order takeout in advance from your favorite Ward 6 restaurant, sit back and join in (tag your watch photos #Brickies2020).

The Brickies is named for the actual awards given by Councilmember Allen to recognize neighbors and neighborhood businesses that have had a big impact on our community. And yes, it’s an actual brick.

The 2018 awards on display.

The awards are a celebration of the people, places, and organizations that make the Ward 6 community great. Established 13 years ago as the ‘Livable Walkable Awards’ by then-Ward 6 Councilmember Tommy Wells, the event was nicknamed ‘The Brickies’ by Hill Rag Editor Andrew Lightman because the awards are presented as engraved bricks.

The winners are selected based on their contributions from a wide range of submissions, with nominations submitted by Ward 6 residents.
