Also receiving a Golden Apple is Lutticken’s whose nomination by Steve Penna, Publisher of The Spectrum Magazine, recognizes them for “being one of those silent givers who does amazing things for our schools and youth in the community.”  Lutticken’s, with restaurants in Menlo Park, Redwood City and at Stanford, donates their time, money and delicious food to multiple schools and events that support local education.

The Education Committee first formed the Chamber’s Golden Apple Award 19 years ago. The award recognizes the impact that business makes on the educational community through their generosity and commitment to the schools.

Golden Apple Award Recipients Facebook and Lutticken’s each exemplify that commitment to education and what great partnerships with the business community can accomplish.
