The Ly family, founders of Sugar Bowl Bakery, will be honored as the “Business Family of the Year” along with recognition going to recipients of the Educator, Firefighter, and Police Officer of the Year.
The event will be held from 6 to 9 p.m. in the University Union on the Hayward campus of California State University, East Bay, 25800 Carlos Bee Blvd. Reservations for the event, which is black tie optional, are $125 apiece and $1,000 for a table and can be arranged at the Hayward Chamber of Commerce, 22561 Main St. Formal invitations were mailed to chamber members Dec. 8.
“This is one of Hayward’s great traditions and reflects the esteem this city has for those that make community service part of their life’s work,” said Kim Huggett, president and CEO of the chamber. “The fact that the gala sells out every year says a lot about Hayward.”
