Meet this year’s amazing nominees

For 2018, we handpicked three local businesses who are killin’ it! Their passion for providing awesome products, love of Vegas, and support of their community stands out—and we’re proud to introduce you to them and show off the great work they’re doing below.

Freedom Luxury Deodorant: Offering natural solutions that work


Freedom started when mother, natural-health advocate, and founder Ira Kaganovsky had three of her closest friends diagnosed with breast cancer, leading them to use only all-natural products. The problem with natural deodorants was that nothing seemed to work. Freedom was born to find a natural deodorant that really works. In over 200 spas, boutiques, salons, and med spas globally, Freedom Deodorant is the #1 natural luxury deodorant. Freedom is a proud partner of American Cancer Society and Nevada Childhood Cancer Foundation and gives back to our community organizations in Nevada that are helping individuals battling cancer.

Sin City Cupcakes: The perfect Vegas indulgence


Sin City Cupcakes is a bakery specializing in both boozy and virgin cupcakes, baked fresh-to-order. In addition to providing indulgent and delicious desserts in a fun and fabulous social setting, Sin City Cupcakes also aims to bring the community together through sharing and giving back to others in need. Catering to both kids and adults who love sweet treats or want to put a smile on someone’s face, they take pride in celebrating all types of occasions: birthdays, bachelorette parties, weddings, catering, corporate dinners, conventions, charities, grand openings, and more!

The Sweat Store: Vegas inspired, carefully curated athletic apparel

The Sweat Store

The Sweat Store is a female-owned and operated, multi-label activewear and athleisure retailer. The Sweat Store team believes in empowering women to feel confident, bold, and sexy. The team accomplishes this goal through hands-on personal styling in-store, where they offer a wide but curated selection of high-fashion fitness and athleisure clothing, ranging from coveted designer brands to stylish options at approachable price points. The belief is that every woman deserves to have someone they can rely on to make them feel and look their best whether they are working out or simply enjoying life. That approach is used in styling each and every person who walks through the doors.

Best of luck to our 2018 nominees!
