Salute to Business Luncheon

May 16, 2019

The Palos Verdes Peninsula Chamber of Commerce invites the public to attend the Salute to Business Luncheon on Thursday, May 16 at 11:30 a.m. at Trump National Golf Club.

Bob Lowe, Chairman of Lowe Enterprises, will speak on “The Lessons of Terranea” as the keynote speaker. One of the success factors that Mr. Lowe will touch upon is his ongoing commitment to being involved in the local community in meaningful and lasting ways.

Four businesses will be honored with these prestigious awards. Receiving the Best New Business Award is Lunada Market & Deli. Owner Jocelyn Lopez has created a business that lives up to its mission of being “Your Neighborhood Market: For the Community, By the Community.”

Two Excellence in Business Awards will be presented this year, one to South Bay Hearing and one to Peninsula Montessori School. South Bay Hearing has served over 30,000 patients since opening its doors in 2007. Founder Dr. Melinda “Sunni” McBride and her team’s goal is to help their patients restore hearing clarity and eliminate the sense of isolation that hearing loss can cause. Their work ranges from hearing loss rehabilitation to reducing the risk of dementia.

Peninsula Montessori School has been in business for over 40 years under the ownership of Claudia Krikorian. Using the Montessori Method, the school has educated thousands of children with the mission of educating the “whole person” and instilling a passion for lifelong learning.

This year the Chamber is awarding a Special Legacy Award to The Admiral Risty Restaurant. A fixture on the Palos Verdes Peninsula for 52 years, The Admiral Risty has served multiple generations of families for all types of special occasions. In August, The Admiral Risty will close its doors, leaving a legacy of warmth, laughter, and joyful memories.
