Our 2016 fall party and fundraiser celebrated Centro's first Small Business Owners of the Year: Ayanna Makalani, Owner of Heal Pilates, Nellie Stokeld, Owner and Queen at The Pie Shop, and Reem Assil, Owner of Reem's. We praise their accomplishments as successful small business entrepreneurs, but also as authentic and inspiring women leaders in the Bay Area.
We also used the stage to launch the first and only guide to help you shop local and small in the Bay Area from emerging entrepreneurs. We called it Meet the Neighbors, and we can't wait to see it become your trusted go-to place to discover and share new favorite local small businesses.
Thank you to all who braved the weather to support Centro, enjoy the food, the drinks, the company and the incredible music of Salt People. Thank you for being community and your genuine excitement for our mission.
