There has been an increase in both the number of attendees and nominees at this year’s “Best of Fair Oaks Awards” compared to last year. The Fair Oaks Youth Advisory Board, Fair Oaks Youth Outreach Group, and Fair Oaks Chamber of Commerce team up each year to put on the Best of Fair Oaks Awards night. High school and college students helped plan the event, and local businesses in Fair Oaks were nominated for awards in different categories. It’s a fun and exciting way to recognize the hard work of the businesses in our community!
The Best of Fair Oaks Awards night was a huge success this year! We were thrilled to see almost twice as many attendees at the gala, held at the beautiful Northridge Country Club. What a pleasant surprise that it was sold out! It’s clear that the event is becoming increasingly popular, and we’re so glad that so many people came out to support our local businesses and community. There were 71 categories and 515 nominees! It was a fantastic night!
Winning and being recognized is fantastic! And participating is just as exciting. Seeing familiar faces from concerts at the park, the Chicken Festival, and Christmas in Fair Oaks is always a blast. Volunteering and celebrating wins with our local business community is such a fulfilling and joyous experience. Seeing the young people taking charge and putting this event together is impressive. I have fond memories of knowing some of them when they were just kids, and now they’re stepping up as leaders and contributing to their community. It’s truly a heartwarming sight.
Two notable people in the community were honored. Katie Yount of Katie Yount insurance was voted best citizen of the year and Dustin Buck of Buck Wealth Management got Best Business of the year. Both Buck and Katie have are present at almost all of the events and donate their time and resources to the Fair Oaks Community.
