Pure Joy Gearing up for the Tom Guerry Awards

Last night, Wednesday 6, 2015 we had the honor of catering the Thomas Guerry Awards Dinner Ceremony for the 12th consecutive year at the Cabrillo Arts Pavillion. It was such a fantastic evening and we look forward to this event each new year. Guests told us it was actually the best year’s event yet and we even received a yelp review:

PJ did the catering for the H. THOMAS GUERRY award dinner on May 6, 2015. Adam and his crew did a stellar job in serving (two tables and four sides for expediency). The serving crew were all polite and professional. The best part was the chow. Char grilled peppers and squash, oven baked tri tip roast, romaine salad that was indulged upon were all great! Truth be told, everyone at our table of 8 returned for seconds, and three of us went for thirds…. for the tri tip lol.

If you’re unfamiliar with the Thomas Guerry Awards; it’s a yearly award ceremony honoring a number of law enforcement for their valor. It’s a great honor to receive this award, and I, for one, am thankful we have amazing men and women working to keep Santa Barbara safe. Unfortunately, there are times when tragedy likes to show it’s face. Last year during the Isla Vista massacre, there were a number of first responders who risked their lives to ensure the safety of others, these are the officers who received the 2015 Thomas Guerry Award. Let’s give these folks a round of applause - they sure do deserve it.

At Pure Joy, we like to show our compassion for such causes by giving back to the community and doing all we can to protect the environment each year. On top of the Thomas Guerry Awards we also contribute to the following:
