Last night we celebrated the best of Redwood City at the Climate Best Awards. As you may know by now, the Climate Best Awards is an opportunity to recognize and highlight the people, organizations and businesses who make Redwood City a special place to live and work.
We had a stand out year – over 2,150 people voted and 146 Redwood City businesses were represented.
Redwood City Mayor Ian Bain gave opening remarks to the crowd, “This group right here, represents the best of the best that Redwood City has to offer. I am proud of each and every single one of you. I have patronized all of your businesses. It really is an honor to be nominated and to those of you who win, it’s a huge honor to say you your business is a Climate Best winner”.
This year the Climate Best Awards featured a non-profit partner, The Redwood City Education Foundation.
The event raised $2,500 for the Education Foundation and incoming Executive Director Jason Galisatus expressed his gratitude to Climate Magazine and the Best Award attendees last night.
Climate Magazine Publisher, Adam Alberti, expressed his appreciation for the businesses in the room who he said,“invest both their money, labor and passion into making redwood City the Center of all that is happening on the Peninsula.”
The winners were announced live last night and we’re excited to share them with you!
