Los Angeles, CA, October 15, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Some of the biggest names in organizing will be in one room on January 26 to celebrate the best in the industry.
The experts that dole out organizing help to the disorganized masses via their books, talk show appearances and TV makeover shows will be at The 7th Annual Organizing Awards at the Sheraton Universal Hotel in Universal City.
Peter Walsh, a New York Times bestselling author and regular contributor on the Rachael Ray Show, will be presenting an award - and possibly picking one up.
“The Awards are an outstanding and entertaining way to bring attention to the best work being done by our peers in this ever-evolving, ever-important industry,” said Walsh, whose former show on the Oprah Winfrey Network, “Extreme Clutter,” is nominated for “Best Show Incorporating Organizing on National Television.”
A&E’s hit show “Hoarders” is nominated in the same category. One of the show’s organizing experts, Dorothy Breininger, will also be a presenter.
The stars of the Style Network’s “Clean House” will also be joining the fun. Mark Brunetz is presenting an award. His book, "Take U Out of Clutter," is nominated for “Best Organizing Book.” Trish Suhr, who was known on the show as the “Yard Sale Diva,” will be hosting the event.
“What makes the Organizing Awards special for me,” Suhr said, “is that it’s all the folks that I look up to and respect in the business.”
