2018 Stars of Lake County

February 17th, 2017 the Lake County Chamber of Commerce presents the 20th Annual Stars of Lake County Community Awards program at Soper Reese Theater. Since 1998 the Chamber has had the privilege of acknowledging over 1800 individuals, organizations and businesses throughout Lake County under the Stars program. To date almost 400 Recipients have been awarded the prestigious ‘Star Award’, all of which are listed on our website.


A unique aspect of Stars is finding out about people whose community contributions would never be known without this county-wide awards event. The Lake County Chamber truly appreciates everyone who submitted a nomination this year. Without the nominations we would not have a program and the community of Lake County would never know all the wonderful efforts put forth by the nominees.


Stars would not be possible without community sponsorships and the Lake County Chamber wishes to thank the following sponsors: Cliff & Nancy Ruzicka, Hospice Services of Lake County, Sutter Lakeside Hospital, Lake County Office of Education, Disney Trophies & Awards, SERVPRO of Lake, Mendocino and Sonoma NE Counties, Savings Bank of Mendocino, Community First Credit Union, Foods Etc., Bruno’s Shop Smart, U.S. Representative Mike Thompson, Tomkins Tax Consultants, North Lake Medical Pharmacy, Calpine Corporation, Adventist Health Clear Lake, North Coast Opportunities and Strong Financial Network.  The Chamber also appreciates the Lake County Record-Bee for publishing the nomination form several times. The Stars Video that is shown during the Reception hour is being produced this year by Third Eye Visuals.


This year we have 65 nominees from all around Lake County and we will have the privilege of honoring all of them on February 17th.   The reception begins at 5pm with substantial appetizers by Lake Event Design and a no host bar by the Chamber. Tickets for Stars are $20/person.  Every nominee receives one free ticket. Contact the Lake County Chamber at 263-5092 for tickets as all seats are reserved, there is no open seating. We anticipate selling all tickets prior to the event date states Chamber President Joe Casteel so there will be no tickets available on the 17th.


Each nominee has been sent a letter from the Chamber alerting them they have been nominated and requesting a photo for the video that is played during the reception. Every nominee receives one free ticket for Stars. Nominees and one guest will be seated in the front sections of the theater. Additional guests of nominees and the general public are seated in the loge sections of the theater.


The Selection Committee in 2018 is comprised of individuals from communities around the county. These individuals know their communities and met on February 1st where they spent almost 5 hours discussing and voting on the recipients who will receive their Star Awards at the Soper Reese Theater on the 17th
