The 2009 inductees were welcomed into the San Fernando Valley Business Hall of Fame today at the Sheraton Universal Hotel in Universal City. This year’s inductees join inaugural inductees: Bob’s Big Boy, Daily News of Los Angeles, Bob Hope Airport, The Voit Companies and William Mulholland.

Representatives from the inductee organizations and Ritchie Valens’ sisters were on hand to accept the induction into the Hall of Fame on behalf of the 2009 honorees. More than 300 VICA members and other community leaders joined the inductees to celebrate their success.

The San Fernando Valley Business Hall of Fame was created by VICA in 2008 to recognize significant contributions to the Valley community. Inductees include individuals, businesses and other community organizations that have been responsible for the continued success, economic vitality and culture of the San Fernando Valley.
