NorthBay biz magazine held their annual “Best of” event on Thursday evening at the Santa Rosa Golf and Country Club. TLCD was honored with a Gold Medal award, received by Alan Butler, Mark Adams, Marina Starkey and Sara Thompson. Alan also received the award for the Redwood Empire Food Bank for Gold Medal in the Nonprofit/Charitable Organization category.
This was the magazine’s 21st year conducting their annual readers poll, and the 9th year hosting the event. In total more than 2500 reader ballots were cast, which translated to 43,000 votes in 38 different categories. Norm and Joni Rosinski–the publishers of the magazine–were dressed to the nines to present awards to 80 award-winning North Bay companies. Upon receipt of their respective awards, local business people were given the chance to say a few words. Their passion for their work and appreciative spirit were welcome, especially in recent tough economic times.
Set by the golf course with plenty of festive food and wine, this event made for an enjoyable evening. Seven “Best of” wineries poured their renowned wines, including La Crema, J Vineyards and Winery, Honig Winery, Hanna Winery, Chalk Hill Estate, Siduri Wines, and Jordan Vineyard and Winery. TLCD looks forward to participating again next year!
