Award Reception

Our Annual Award Ceremony is a chance to celebrate Bay Area family businesses making outstanding impacts in their communities.  Award winners have shown true heart, longevity, and commitment to community service. All of them serve a strong ethnic or specialty customer base that might otherwise be left behind.


Every year, we honor awardees from this year and the last. New winners are recognized by elected officials and professionally photographed with their family. The next year, this photo is offered to them—specially framed—as a lasting symbol of endurance and longevity.


But the highlight of the Award Reception is hearing this year’s winners speak. They’re the people shaping our neighborhoods and communities. It’s an honor to recognize their great work.


Our Annual Award Ceremony this year is May 25, 2021 from 5-6pm.
