Recipients Announced for Inaugural Excellence in La Verne Business Awards

The La Verne Chamber of Commerce will kick off 2020 by honoring the recipients of its inaugural Excellence in La Verne Business Awards: La Verne Brewing Co. as Business of the Year; M.K. Stark Co. as Family Owned Business of the Year; and Pomona Valley Habitat for Humanity as Non-Profit of the Year.

Due to a tied vote by the selection committee, New Business of the Year will honor both Mathnasium and Rockstars of Tomorrow. (A fifth category, Veteran Owned Business of the Year, was also open, but no nominations were received by the deadline.) Juan Fuentes of Farmers Insurance will take home the Ambassador of the Year plaque.

Through the Excellence in La Verne Business Awards, the Chamber recognizes businesses and individuals that have demonstrated the principles of community service, a positive economic impact, civic leadership and the best traditions of good corporate citizenship.

Award recipients will be formally recognized at the Excellence in La Verne event on Wednesday, January 22, 6:00 p.m., at Wedgewood Sierra La Verne Country Club, 6300 Country Club Dr., La Verne.

Tickets to the event are $65. In addition to the award presentation, guests will enjoy a cocktail and heavy hors d’oeuvres reception. Sponsorships and tables are available for purchase. For event sponsorship information, contact Leah Skinner.
