Announcing the Winners of the 2016 Work Local Awards

Thank you to everyone who came out last night to the 2016 Work Local Awards celebration party!

We couldn’t have asked for better weather. The event took place on a terrace overlooking Lake Merritt at The Port Workspaces—which, by the way, will be team Localwise’s new home come June.

It was truly a community gathering that brought together employers, employees, friends, family, and community members. We were thrilled to meet many of the Localwise community members in person for the first time.

And a great plus: the event featured delicious locally-made food and drinks from Pacific Coast Brewing Co., Phil’s Sliders, Starter Bakery, Hot Italian and Vignette Soda.
