FAIR OAKS, CA (MPG) – For a good time, call your Chamber of Commerce? When it includes the Best of Fair Oaks, a good time is a guarantee.

This year’s event was orchestrated by the chamber’s youth ambassadors, and they really raised the bar by adding new fun features to everyone’s delight.

With added categories, a revamped website that drew many new voters, (designed by Ryan Griffith, owner of Averik), and the energy provided by the young organizers the total number of good laughs exceeded last year’s gathering.

The Best of Fair Oaks winners were determined by votes compiled on BestofFairOaks.com. To receive votes for the awards you must have been a member of the chamber of commerce or have a business operating within the Fair Oaks community.

Each year the event seems to be getting bigger and better. The total votes accumulated increased and the number of people participating in the event grows as well.

Some notable category winners were; Best Event of the Year – Chicken Festival; Best Grocery/Supermarket – Trader Joe’s; Best Health/Wellness – Rollingwood Athletic Club; Best Restaurant – Dad’s Kitchen; Best Pizza – Del’s Pizza; Best Fast Food in Town – Sunflower Drive-in; Best financial Planning Services – Dustin Buck, Buck Wealth Management.

Adding to the event were the annual awards given for chamber recognition. Volunteer of the Year was awarded to Kathy O’Brien. Business of the Year was awarded to Rachel Griffith. Business of the Year was awarded to Del’s Pizza. Citizen of the Year was awarded to Jim Cralle. Special recognition was given to Ryan Griffith for all of his tech support.

The Fair Oaks Chamber of Commerce hosted the event January 24, 2019 at Northridge Country Club. It was co-sponsored by the Fair Oaks Chamber of Commerce and the Messenger Publishing Group, publisher of American River Messenger, the newspaper for the Fair Oaks community.

The leadership of the youth organizers were; Cassie Kendall, Delanie Kendall, Matthew Mason, Noah Wright and Emma Ford. Together they all did a fantastic job on the event.

Other sponsors included Fair Oaks Recreation & Park District, Kaia Fit Fair Oaks, Sunrise Senior Living, Hirsch & Cook CPA, New Life Community Church, The Recognition Group, Hensler Real Estate and Faces 365.
