COME AND RAISE A GLASS OF PROSECCO
WITH SERGIO HE WILL BE SO HAPPY TO SEE YOU
all for you my lovelies
I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for this honor.
(see Small Business Award)
I am so proud to be a member of a community that cares so deeply and works with joy. To be a second generation business in Toluca Lake is a dream come true.
Pergolina is a blank canvas to broaden the creative juices of our clients, not only with a diverse mixture of products, but with classes, language, art, floral design and makers. Art exhibits, charitable functions, awareness of other cultures. Children came and drew on the sidewalk and donated money to the children of Afghanistan. A Check for $5000 was sent to Easterseals for the awareness of Autism, the gross sales of an art show. We have had two client appreciation brunches, Pergolina believes is saying thank you.
Pergolina has never been just a cute gift shop, but a haven for the creative and bold, magical people of Toluca Lake. She greets her Toluca Lake family with the door wide open.
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!
