19th Annual Excellence in Business Awards
On Tuesday night, the Millbrae City Council and Millbrae Chamber of Commerce honored eight local organizations during the 19th Annual Excellence in Business Awards. The organizations were recognized for their work to support and improve the Millbrae community and economy.
This year’s Business of the Year Award was presented to Bronzini Dental Group for their significant contributions to the Millbrae community. Bronzini Dental Group was founded in 1968 by Dr. Joseph Bronzini. Since then, he has been joined by three his sons: Rey, Christopher and Nicolas, who all followed in their father’s footsteps and became dentists.
Together, they have continually worked to uplift our community through their generous support of community events and youth sports teams. In addition, each year, Dr. Nick’s buys back Halloween candy from local children for $1 per pound. He then gives the candy to Operation Gratitude, an organization that sends the sweet treats to our military service members. Last year, he collected 400 pounds of candy.
Bronzini Dental Group is a shining example of an engaged business that uplifts the lives of everyone who lives, works and plays in Millbrae.
