The 2019 Main Line Parent LOVE Awards

It is that time of year again! LOVE is in the air for the Main Line Parent Community. 


In 2018 we were honored to recognize over 200 businesses and 10 incredible individuals with LOVE Awards and we can’t wait to do it again! We’re pleased to announce that the 2019 Main Line Parent & Philadelphia Family LOVE Awards Celebration & Community Party will be held once again at World Cafe Live on Thursday, May 2, 2019.


If you have been a part of our LOVE Awards previously, you’ll remember that we transitioned to a “quality over quantity” approach to our nomination and voting process. Instead of honoring the businesses who were able to get the most votes, we want to honor those who had clients and customers willing to share why their business truly went above and beyond for them. At first, not everyone was happy about this. We agree it is harder to ask people to spend a few minutes explaining why they want to vote for you, but we found our community eager to share their experiences! We’re so proud to be rewarding the outstanding businesses that members of our community can TRUST. Have friends raising their kids in the city? Refer them to the Philly Family LOVE Awards to make a nomination!


Last year at the LOVE Awards Celebration we raised $1,000 for Smith Memorial Playground & Playhouse with our event raffle. Brand new this year, we are asking community members to help us pick a non-profit to be the beneficiary of the event raffle at the end of this nomination form.  If you know of or are affiliated with a non-profit, please submit their name along with an endorsement for your favorite business, so they can have the chance to receive this year’s raffle funds.
