This year, we received an impressive selection of 30 candidates from a diverse group of industries. All of the organizations nominated are doing extraordinary work in our community; making a difference and keeping our local economy strong.

Over 450 top business leaders, community organizers and elected officials in Marin County joined us at the annual State of the City dinner on Thursday, March 3rd at Peacock Gap to celebrate the accomplishments of these companies and to honor this year’s winners. The Joe Garbarino Green Business of the Year was awarded to Lotus Family of Restaurants”.
