Awards Banquet




The Kern Press Club Awards Banquet will be 6-9 p.m. Friday, June 14 at Narducci’s Cafe, 622 E 21st St., Bakersfield, CA 93305.

Ticket prices are $35 for members, $40 for non-members if paid by June 7. You can pay at the door, but prices go up to $40 and $45. You may be thinking that that’s a lot for dinner, but just take a minute to read over the Narducci’s menu:


• Choice of entree: Tri-tip, or chicken breast with creamy garlic sauce.
• PLUS, the whole Basque set-up: Bread, soup, salad, beans, pasta, fries, and pickled tongue.
• Spumoni for desert, and red wine on the table. Cocktails and other beverages will be available for purchase at the bar.

So come join us at Narducci’s on June 14 for good food, great company, and to honor excellence in Kern County media.

And remember, proceeds go to fund the scholarships we award to local students each year!
