We were honored to receive the Small Business Award for our much beloved Pergolina. Paulanna Cuccinello, longtime owner of Pergolina was the deserved recipient of the award this year. Tim Hawkins and myself accepted the award on her behalf.
Besides former Marine Hawkins, who we thank for his service, the event was also attended by State Senators, Councilmembers and the business community of the San Fernando Valley.
Paulanna’s unique approach to art and unique gifts of character are a tradition. She has given our community a wonderful place to shop with her unique perspective that can be found only at Pergolina. Each week you will find something new.
Please remember that your Chamber/Homeowners membership app entitles you to a “discount!”
A dear friend of mine, she is impossible to shop for, prompted a visit for my personal Pergolina challenge. What could I possibly find for her?
I explained the personal nuances of my friend and after about 30 seconds I was guided to some very fanciful gift possibilities. Paulanna made it fun and easy. She is like a gift therapist! She has exemplified what a true Tolucan is: Both as a homeowner and an entrepreneur, she is respected and admired by all who know her. In the end her staff wrapped up the presents, found a wonderfully appropriate card and I was on my way!
Congratulations my friend!
