Due to the most recent mandate from the State of California regarding community gatherings over 250 people, the Boards of the Campbell Chamber and the Campbell Chamber Community Foundation are following the Health Department guidelines and are postponing Celebrate Campbell scheduled for this Saturday evening at Villa Ragusa in Downtown Campbell.

The Chamber Foundation is working with Villa Ragusa to secure a date in the future so that the 52nd annual event can be held to recognize the individuals, businesses and service groups that make Campbell such a great place.  The new date for the 52nd Annual Celebrate Campbell is tentatively set for June 20, 2020.

The Chamber and Foundation have a long history of doing things right.  In this particular case, despite our desire to bring light to the best of Campbell, the decision given the current environment, was do the right thing.  We want this event to be a celebration of the great work of so many people, organizations and businesses rather than one filled with concern.

Those who registered for the event will be receiving an email and phone call with more information.  We ask for your patience and understanding during our outreach.  All purchased tickets and tables will remain valid for the upcoming event.

All of us at the Campbell Chamber Community Foundation and the Campbell Chamber of Commerce are here to assist our community, its residents and businesses in this trying time.  By working together just as Campbell has done throughout history, we will get through this together.

2018 Winner - Carol Hoffman

Carol Hoffman has lived in Campbell for over 30 years. A Software Program Director by day, Carol enjoys volunteering in her spare time.  After raising her family, there was an opportunity to give back to the  community that has supported them for so many years.    

She started volunteering at Relay for Life in 2005 as a participant, supporter, and team captain.

In 2013, Carol graduated in the first class of the Leadership Campbell Program, which provided an understanding of Campbell’s infrastructure as well as the supporting of local leaders.  This opened the doors to many volunteering opportunities, starting with a park clean up and staffing a booth during Oktoberfest.  This is when she learned about the large volunteer community of amazing people that support our city.

Carol joined the Campbell/West-Valley Rotary in 2013.  In 2014, she joined the Campbell Police Foundation Board (CPF) and was appointed to  the Civic Improvement Commission (CIC).  She was one of the founding members of the West Valley Rotary Community Corps when it was  established in 2018, and serves at the current President.
