The Nextdoor 100 is a celebration of the super amazing supportive, surprising, creative, compassionate, never-not-there-when-you-need them neighbors across America. From the local grocer that’s open 365 days a year to the friend that’s always at the ready with a meal or a ride, this ‘for neighbors, by neighbors’ award program invites everyone to nominate the meaningful people and local businesses in everyone’s lives.
On May 22, the celebration is coming to Sacramento with The Nextdoor 100 Block Party. Everyone is invited to this free event, which features the flavors and personalities of the Greater Sacramento area. ABC10’s Mark S. Allen, a seven-time Emmy Award winning member of the news team, will emcee the afternoon event that will include local vendors, food, live entertainment, and special guests from the community. Plus, Councilmember Katie Valenzuela will be on-hand to help announce a few of Sacramento’s top neighbors who will be recognized on stage at the community gathering.
