Last year I wrote an article titled Open Minds and Forward Thinking: Women Impact in the World of Business to thank the women entrepreneurs – all Oakland Grown members – who responded so quickly to my request for donations to run the Bay Area’s Ideal Date Night Contest. So it didn’t surprise me at all that Kate Ellen, founder of Crown Nine (also an Oakland Grown member) responded so quickly to my request for prize donations for PIC Oakland 2014.
She offered her beautiful Cerco Necklace to be given away as a prize during the PIC Oakland Reception on September 4, 2014 at the Gondola Servizio & Lake Chalet docks in Oakland from 5:30 – 8pm.
I asked Kate to share what local means to her:
Local means being engaged. It means knowing and caring about the complexity and vitality of our neighborhoods and people. It means choosing to do small and big things that help keep prosperity in our town.
