From the SGV with Love

October 9, 2021

Diamond Bar Community Center
1600 Grand Ave, Diamond Bar, CA 91765

The Partnership recognizes individuals and organizations for their extraordinary achievements to the San Gabriel Valley by honoring them at our annual Awards Gala. Attendees of the Gala are the business and civic leaders in the Valley. 

This year, business leaders came in their swankiest secret agent attire in honor of our "espionage" theme. Entertainment included music, a charity casino, and a raffle. All raffle tickets were shaken, not stirred.
