Each year the Graham Avenue BID takes time to toast the year’s successes and improvements and thank those who helped make them possible. “We hold an annual event to demonstrate our commitment to the growth of this retail district and support to the folks who live and work here. We also use this time to honor those who have provided exemplary commitment to the work we do,” said Betty Cooney, Exec. Dir of the Graham Avenue BID.
The event was held at Graham Avenue’s Emblem Sports Bar/Restaurant. Joe Reiser, from Reiser’s Men’s Shop was named property owner of the year. Juan Mao and Alma Lopez from the Princesa Bakery were named business owners of the year. Special honors went to Sarup Arora from Party Glitters, for his 30+ years of service to the Graham Avenue and 90th Precinct Captain Timothy Skretch was also recognized.
