The Crescenta Valley, La Cañada and Montrose-Verdugo City chambers of commerce presented the annual Foothills Community Business Expo on Sept. 12.

The event, held in the community rooms of Verdugo Hills Hospital, was from 5 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. and attracted 67 businesses and over 450 visitors, according to CV Chamber executive director Julia Rabago. Guests learned of the diverse businesses and services offered in the foothills and had the chance to win prizes and taste a variety of fare.

Agave Bar & Grill at Angeles National Golf Club, Baked on OceanView, Berolina Bakery, Dream Dinners La Crescenta, Frank’s Famous Kitchen & Bakery, Leo’s All-Star Sports Bar & Grill, Leon Bakery & Café, Montrose Bakery & Coffee Shop, North Shore Burgers and Pepe’s Mexican Restaurant all provided samples of their food at no cost to attendees.

Typically well attended, this year’s event is equally appealing to both attendees and business owners who are eager to share information about their business.

“The annual business expo is one of my favorite local events,” said Leonard Ghazarian who owns Caspian Services and has been participating for the past seven years and is also the president of the CV Chamber of Commerce. “[The expo] allows businesses to connect with potential new customers, network with other businesses and interact with their current customers in a different environment. All during a fun event with music, food and raffle prizes. And from the chambers’ perspective, this event is one of the ways the chamber promotes the civic, economic and professional welfare of the Crescenta Valley.”
