Peerless, Oaklandish, and Uptown Body & Fender Among Indie Award Winners

At the fourth-annual OaklandIndie Awards on Friday night, Peerless Coffee and Tea received the prestigious “pillar” award for its eight decades of service to the community while selling fine coffees and teas. The Vukasin family was honored for civic involvement that has ranged from establishing a Peerless Coffee scholarship to UC Berkeley and helping to bring the Raiders back to Oakland to rebuilding health centers in Colombia and El Salvador following earthquakes there. And Peerless was one of the first businesses in Oakland to be green certified, back in 2001.
