On March 3, 1913, 5,000 women marched on the White House. Why? They were demanding equality and the right to vote. This was the first civil rights parade using the nation’s capital as a backdrop. One hundred years later, we honor the suffragist movement with Women’s History Month.
In recognition of Women’s History Month, Assemblyman and Assistant Assembly Floor Leader, V. Manuel Perez of Coachella, held a breakfast on March 29th. At that breakfast, 13 local women business and community leaders nominated by the various local chambers of commerce and business organizations were honored. Among award recipients was the Executive Director and Founder of ShareKitchen – Angela Janus. Angela was nominated as Business Woman of the Year by the Coachella Valley Women’s Business Center.
The award reads, “This honor is reflective of Angela’s business development that has provided support services to culinary entrepreneurs in the Coachella Valley. On behalf of the…State Assembly…we proudly commend her continued service within our community.”
Many thanks go out to the Coachella Valley Women’s Business Center for nominating Angela. Angela was humbled and honored by the recognition alongside fellow award recipients: Dr. Christine Anderson, Superintendent of the Palm Springs Unified School District; Melinda Doherty of Hadley Farms; Gloria Franz of Frantz & Tatum Wealth Management; Dr. Sonja Fung of the Live Well Clinic; Evy Hanson of Leap Marketing; Dr. Serena Ho of Desert Eye Works Optometry, Barbara Keller of Lulu’s California Bistro; Dot Reed of Desert Hot Springs; Barbara Smith of Ivey Ranch Country Club; Paula Tapia of Pacific Western; Valerie Ward of Burrtec Waste Management, and; Carol Zale of The River.
The ShareKitchen Board of Advisors and family of Clients want to congratulate all award recipients. We could not be happier for or prouder of our association with our business partner and dear friend, Angela Janus.
