Modesto, CA – Stanislaus County might be a long way from the film industry’s hub but the Stanislaus Business Alliance is bringing Hollywood glamour and excitement to the area with Celebrate Stanislaus, its second annual event to honor those businesses adding jobs to the local economy. The Hollywood-themed event will be held at the State Theatre on Wednesday, March 30 at 11:30 a.m. Celebrate Stanislaus will feature Congressman and job growth champion Jeff Denham as its keynote speaker and will also include a lifetime achievement award honoring fallen star Carl Boyett for his personal and philanthropic contributions to Stanislaus County.

The Stanislaus Business Alliance is also proud to announce that a portion of each event sponsorship will be donated to the Stanislaus Community Foundation for use in the Stanislaus Reads program, an effort focused on improving childhood literacy and educational outcomes for local youth. Event sponsors include Stanislaus Surgical Hospital, Stanislaus Food Products, Doctors Medical Center, the Central Valley Fund, Wright Insurance Agency, Duarte Trees and Vines, Ross F. Carroll, Inc., and TD Gingerich Insurance Solutions, Inc.

David White, Chief Executive Officer of the Stanislaus Business Alliance, believes Celebrate Stanislaus is significant in the organization’s recently unveiled plans to facilitate job growth by driving new and existing business expansion through support of local companies. “Stanislaus County is a fantastic place to live and work and we are proud to honor those companies contributing to our goal of increasing the quality of life even more by growing our local economy,” said White. “We are recognizing companies of all sizes from every industry in our county understanding that each plays a vital role in our economic strength.”
