March has turned out to be a great month for us. We celebrated our first year of buisness and we were nominted for an Indie Award!
The Oakland Indie Awards is sponsored by OneCal Foundation. This annual event celebrates small businesses and artists in Oakland that have a positive social or environmental impact on the community. We are honored to be nominated and proud to be a part of a program that works towards community development.
Somar was nominated for two categories: Ripple Effect and Newbie. The Ripple Effect category is for the support of other local businesses and artists by “shopping local” for their supplies and services, creating an economic ripple effect as money circulates within the community. The Newbie category for an inspiring new business or artist that opened in 2006 or 2007 and is great for any reason you choose!
The Awards Party is May 14, 2010 from 5:30 pm to 9:00 pm at the Jack London Pavilion, 98 Broadway, Oakland. Buy your tickets today so you don’t miss out on the fun. Cheer on the winners as you enjoy food from over 20 different Oakland restaurants, local beer, wine, tea, coffee, and chocolate, DJ spinning Oakland music, cool products from Oakland Unwrapped stores, and more!
See you there!
