Octavio Diaz Wins Spirit of Sonoma Award

Octavio Diaz Wins Spirit of Sonoma Award

OCTAVIO DIAZ
HONORED BY HISPANIC CHAMBER OF COMMERCE FOR THE 2012 SPIRIT OF SONOMA AWARD

When Octavio Diaz came to the United States, his first job was at the Double Tree in when it was known as the Red Lion Inn.  While working at the hotel, he saw people attending an awards ceremony and being recognized for their achievements.  He decided then that he would be one of those people someday.  Today, Octavio, you are that person. Starting from humble beginnings, he worked his way up to being the owner/chef of Agave Mexican Restaurant.    Last year, he took a portion of his proceeds from the last Thursday of every month and contributed it to the Community Foundation Healdsburg Endowment.  He is an active member of the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, a Board member of Community Foundation Healdsburg, Board member of the Healdsburg Chamber of Commerce, and serves on the Economic Development Board for the City of Healdsburg.  When asked,” What do you want people to know about you?”  He replies, “I don’t like to say no and neither does my brother. We say, instead, how can we make this happen? We work very hard and we invest and support the community. For the next generation, I want them to be educated, to have the tools to go further.”    We join the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce in honoring Octavio Diaz with this Spirit Award.
