LAKE COUNTY, Calif. – Six businesses will vie for six prizes at a virtual business competition on Sunday, Dec. 6.

The first prize winner will walk away with a cash award of $15,000 sponsored by the city of Clear Lake and The Lodge at Blue Lakes.

Hands Up Lake County, a local first, is a project of the recently formed nonprofit, 1Team 1Dream.

Inspired by Shark Tank and Mendocino Start Up, the business competition attracted 36 businesses. Fifteen made it to the second phase, a one-day business plan training and mini-competition where judges made a very tough choice.

Ultimately Lisa Wilson of Clear Lake Boat Rental, Mayra and Nick Lam of Lam Printing, David Brown of Susie Q’s Donuts and Espresso, Mark and Tammy Lipps of The Ripe Choice Farm and Catering, Dottie Bates of True Grit Coffeehouse and Stacie Judson of Wild Bee Creations made it to the final phase.

In addition to the $15,000 prize, five prizes ranging from $5,000 to $1,000 will be awarded.

A special “Fan Favorite” prize will also be awarded and announced at the business competition. Anyone can participate in selecting their favorite business. To vote for one of the 6 finalists, go to https://www.facebook.com/1Team1DreamLakeCounty/.

The business competition will be staged at the Soper Reese Theatre, the program will be streamed live, beginning at 1:45 p.m. at the Facebook site above.
