LOCO BC is a Vancouver organization that connects local businesses and entrepreneurs. LOCO builds community and strengthens our local economy. Last month we hosted the LOCO BC Holiday Mixer with Eclipse Awards. This event showcased some of Saul Good Gift Co.’s best local BC artisan suppliers from our Vancouver gift basket business.

As a member of the LOCO Board, I see how hard Amy Robinson works to keep LOCO thriving.

The Vancouver business community is so grateful for the opportunity to build community and keep our local economy strong. At the LOCO BC Holiday Mixer, Amy was presented with an award from Toby Barazzuol (the president of Eclipse Awards). This beautiful award was created with reclaimed wood and a lot of love.

At the LOCO BC Holiday Mixer, the Eclipse/ Saul Good office became flooded with some of Vancouver’s most passionate local entrepreneurs. These hard working folks were served local artisan appetizers from Gone Crackers, Dundarave Olive Company, Parisian macarons from Kitchening With Carly and confections by Cocolico (featuring their sweet & salty pretzel nut mix, drizzled in burnt caramel sauce).

Refreshments and libations included wine from Clos du Soleil, locally produced organic vodka and gin made from Pemberton Distillery. In addition to local organic alcohol, there was an exciting selection of SIP sodas.
