Nominations can be made for businesses, non-profit organizations and individuals who have made a significant contribution to the Pleasanton community in five award categories: Business Philanthropy, Excellence in Business, Excellence in Service, Distinguished Individual and Green Service.
The awards will be presented at the Community Service Awards event in March at Pleasanton's Firehouse Arts Center.
The Community Service Awards began in 1963 to recognize good people doing great things in the community and since then hundreds of recipients have been honored.
Anyone may submit nominations for these awards with the focus on businesses, organizations and individuals that have "made a difference" in the quality of life for everyone in Pleasanton.
The Pleasanton Chamber presented five Community Service Awards in 2012. The Business Philanthropy award went to Sensiba San Filippo LLP; Excellence in Business award, to Goodguys Rod & Custom Association; Excellence in Service award to Pleasanton Community Concert Band; Distinguished Individual Service award to Bob Athenour; and the Green Business award went to The Dahlin Group.
