Roll out that red carpet, folks. We had a chance to attend the inaugural Intentionalist Awards on Wednesday, Oct. 11, at the Seattle Public Library’s Central Branch. And it was a ceremony filled with lots of local love.

Seahawks great Doug Baldwin played host, Mayor Bruce Harrell was on hand to say a few words, and we munched on bites from Seattle restaurants like Maiz and Oshun.

In keeping with its mission of elevating community-driven entrepreneurs, Intentionalist handed out prizes to six different Seattle-based businesses. Each earned $2,500.

The winners — and finalists — should all be on your list of places to check out. Drum roll...

Congrats to all.
