Over seven hundred people attended the BBQ in the Vineyards event, the signature annual event of Region Business. Hosted by their Political Action Committee, the BBQ at the Sugarmill in Clarksburg, was an evening with elected officials from throughout the region, hundreds of leaders from the building industry, wine, beer, food, cigar bar, and a silent auction.

This year’s event was a celebration of the name change of the organization to Region Business - Sacramento’s regional business group.  The event also recognized a myriad of political victories the organization has experienced this year including: getting a one day permit program passed in five jurisdictions, chairing the steering committee of Mayor Kevin Johnson’s Downtown Housing Initiative, getting a programmatic EIR passed in the City of Sacramento to streamline development, and the current efforts underway to exempt restaurants from the minimum wage discussion.
