The Press Democrat’s “Best of Sonoma County” 2017 awards celebration has been postponed due to the fire disaster.

The event, planned to honor all the winners of an annual reader poll, was scheduled for Tuesday, Oct. 10 at Santa Rosa’s Luther Burbank Center for the Arts Pavilion.

“Given the tragedy of today’s fires and the need to help those who have lost their homes and businesses, we are postponing the annual Press Democrat Best of Sonoma Celebration,” said Steve Falk, CEO of Sonoma Media Investments, parent company of the Press Democrat. “We hope to announce a new date in the foreseeable future.”
