[excerpted from noozhawk.com] Local leaders in business and technology gather to recognize individuals and companies who have demonstrated extraordinary commitment to ensuring the economic vitality of the South Coast of Santa Barbara County. Proceeds benefit the Scholarship Foundation of Santa Barbara’s South Coast Business & Technology Awards Fund, which grants scholarships to local students studying business and technology-related subjects at local schools.
“This event is truly unique,” Scholarship Foundation president and CEO Candace Winkler told Noozhawk. “It is an opportunity to celebrate the top echelon of the business and technology community while supporting our local students — the next generation of leaders.”
The Excellence in Service Award was presented to Old Spanish Days in Santa Barbara, dedicated to celebrating, honoring and preserving Santa Barbara’s history, spirit, culture, heritage, and traditions.
