WATCH and Celebrate! RAMMYS Nominations Announcement Monday, May 4 3:00PM

April 27, 2020

Dear Restaurant Community, Sponsors, Partners, and Friends, 

We thought we would start this Monday morning off with some good and celebratory news to take everyones’ minds off of all the serious topics top of mind lately. You may remember that we were slated to announce the 2020 RAMMY Awards finalists on March 30th, at our annual and grand celebration at The Hamilton Live.  As with all events during this unprecedented time, we had to re-envision the format and platform for this announcement. 

While we could have kept postponing, we thought it would be a welcome moment of celebration and positivity to spread a little good news among the industry, and to have a reason to create media buzz around not only the finalists, but also around ALL OF YOU, this entire industry who have been so resilient, creative, and community-minded as we all stay the course. 

We are thrilled to have the support and creative talent of our friends and media partners at NBC4 Washington who are helping us in this announcement, along with TV personality Chef Carla Hall, and many partners who made this possible. 

Please join RAMW on Monday, May 4th at 3:00pm as NBC4 News Anchor Eun Yang joins us to announce the finalists and honorees for the 2020 RAMMYS, celebrating the immense talent of this industry over the past year. This video announcement will go live at 3pm, but will also live on to be shared on a variety of platforms, through our industry partners and media partners, and by those of you who may like to share on your channels.  While we will miss seeing all of you as guests of the Nominations Party event this year, the bright side to this platform change is that the finalists and participating sponsors will be seen by many audiences and across many platforms to include television, web, and social media.  

The RAMMYS signifies so much in terms of celebration and recognition.  We know this Awards season will look very different as our industry is focused on relief and recovery in the coming months. The RAMMYS will likely move to later in the Fall (date to be announced) and will pivot its focus to industry resurgence. But rest assured we will come together somehow, in a BIG way, when we can raise a glass to acknowledge the triumphs and tribulations we are all facing together, the leadership you all have displayed, and how proud we are to be part of this incredible community. 

Tune in next Monday, May 4th at 3:00pm to or find us on Facebook and Instagram @RAMWdc to watch the RAMMY Awards Announcement. 

Let’s make this a great week.
