2022 NBNA Growing Together Awards
Thank you to those of you who attended the NBNA Growing Together Awards! And a very special thank you to our 2022 honorees Garcia Realty and David Ingram.
NEWTON BOOTH GOOD NEIGHBOR AWARD
Garcia Realty has been in the Newton Booth neighborhood for over 50 years. Frank and Eva Garcia had one of their first offices on 21st and J Streets in the early 70's. Among many accomplishments, Frank helped found the Midtown Business Association, and both Eva and Frank were founders of the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce.
Garcia Realty has been instrumental in helping other business owners and non-profits purchase their commercial buildings and spaces in the Midtown area. They have also helped numerous neighbors sell and purchase their homes in the Newton Booth neighborhood. They continue to have an impact on the neighborhood with its property ownership including commercial and residential units in the area. They advocate for preservation of our historic homes and buildings and the safety of our community.
Rosanna and Franco both live in the Newton Booth neighborhood and are continuing the legacy their parents started, staying actively involved in the real estate industry and the community that they love so much.

David Ingram began practicing law with Tennant & Dawson in 1994 and later took over the firm in 2004 when David Tennant retired. Since 2003, the office has been located to the historical Chrisler Home in Poverty Ridge.
Proud of the history of the building and the neighborhoods surrounding it as a whole. David is very adamant about preserving the historical nature of the neighborhood and wants to avoid it being enveloped into the mid-town commercial grid. He is active in the Garden Highway Community Association and now the Newton Booth Neighborhood where he adamantly cleans up and advocates for safer neighborhoods in both
Since March 2021, David has been one of the core leaders of Sacramento Picks it Up!, an all-volunteer group that cleans up local urban areas, including the areas under the WX freeway, as well as riparian areas in and around our rivers and creeks.
David's Goals: ensure that the NBNA neighborhoods continue to be unified and active in the preservation of their communities and not be ignored simply because of our proximity to freeway corridors.
