Event Description:

The Golden Acorn Awards, now in its fortieth year, is a Menlo Park tradition. During this event the Menlo Park Chamber of Commerce celebrates community achievement through the volunteer efforts and contributions of organizations and individuals. It is a formal recognition that through the donations of time, talent, or funding Menlo Park has become a better place to work, live, enjoy, and thrive!

Each year the Nominating Committee selects award recipients in the fields of Public Service, Business Excellence, Community Service, and Innovation & Technology. The recipients are individual contributors, small businesses, organizations, and non-profits serving Menlo Park.

This year, we are thrilled to have Sheryl Sandberg, Chief Operating Officer of Facebook, as our keynote speaker!
