Nominate your local hero to North Bay Spirit Awards

The North Bay Spirit award was developed in partnership with The Press Democrat and Comcast NBCU to celebrate people who make a difference in our communities. In addition to highlighting remarkable individuals, the North Bay Spirit program aims to encourage volunteerism, raise visibility of nonprofits and create a spirit of giving. Each month The Press Democrat will donate $500 to the Spirit awardee’s favorite charity. Read about a new North Bay Spirit recipient every month in the Sonoma Life section of The Press Democrat and watch each of their stories on .
