EDH man earns Silver Sombrero

Chevys Fresh Mex hosted Sacramento business and community leaders at its Riverfront location Feb. 29 to honor six outstanding community members with “Silver Sombrero” awards.

El Dorado Hills resident Charles Baldwin was among the recipients.

As CEO and president of Sac Area Sports, Baldwin leads the non-profit sports program he founded more than 15 years ago to provide basketball and other sports tournaments for inner city youth. Through his passion and the program, he creates a positive environment and encourages youth to follow a path of morals and integrity.

Chevys President Brian Wright presented each of the honorees with a $1,000 donation to the charity of their choice, free Chevys Fresh Mex for a year and a Silver Sombrero plaque for permanent display at their local Chevys restaurant.

Chevys selected the six recipients for the inaugural “Silver Sombrero” awards based on their commitment to making a difference in the lives of Sacramento youth through mentorship, sports and education.

“Chevys is renewing our commitment to community, and we are pleased to honor those who make our world a little — or a lot — better every day,” said Brian Wright, president of Chevys Fresh Mex. “As we launch our revitalization pilot program in Sacramento, there was no better time to create the Silver Sombrero awards to recognize outstanding community members who share our passion for enriching the lives of kids through mentorship, sports and education. We thank this year’s honorees for their continued commitment to youth development in Sacramento.”
