The Pinnacle and The Pinnacle South Valley received one of Silicon Valley’s most prestigious arts awards in a ceremony Tuesday at the Fairmont Hotel in San Jose.

The Arts Council of Silicon Valley honored the newspapers for support of the South Valley Symphony by bestowing executive editor Anna Marie dos Remedios with a Silicon Valley Arts and Business Award, also known as the ABBY.

“We are a community newspaper that takes the term ‘community’ seriously,” Remedios said in accepting the award in the Fairmont ballroom. “Our aim is to unite the community through information. The symphony – and all areas of the arts – are what give the communities we cover its soul. For that reason, our largest single area of sponsorship is the arts, and we are proud to support the South Valley Symphony, which tackles ambitious programs and creates beautiful music in an area many of you might associate primarily with garlic.”

The Pinnacle won in the First Time Business Support category. Other nominees were Applied Materials, Garden Court Hotel, Shoreline Amphitheatre/Clear Channel Entertainment, Silicon Valley Bank and Sing Tao Chinese Radio.

The Pinnacle was nominated by Symphony president Al Navaroli and Treasurer Paul Kloecker, who said the newspaper’s sponsorship saves the non-profit organization thousands of dollars every year.

“The Pinnacle showed leadership and support in sponsoring a cultural organization in the South Valley,” Navaroli said after the awards ceremony. “You’ve increased audience participation. You’re doing a tremendous job and your efforts should be rewarded. This is a big moment for both of us.”

As a sponsor, The Pinnacle provides advertising and other support to the symphony so that the organization can focus its efforts on its musical programs.

“Al Navaroli is a tireless advocate for the symphony and his enthusiasm is contagious,” said Remedios. “When he began lobbying Publisher Tracie Cone for support, she couldn’t say ‘no.’ And we’re happy to be a part of their effort to make the arts a strong force in the South Valley.”

Other winners included the Institute of Sino-American Studies, the Palo Alto Art Center Foundation, and the Bank of Los Altos.

The symphony performs at 8 p.m. Saturday at the Gavilan College Theater.
