Upon her 2019 retirement, Congressman Jimmy Panetta entered in the Congressional Record a statement about Lynch's contributions "creating a greater equity in funding for the arts throughout the county, developing award-win- ning programs and providing unifying leader- ship in the creative sector." The Monterey County Board of Supervisors named Lynch the Outstanding Woman of Monterey County in 2013 for her role in expanding regional arts opportunities. Lynch, a Boston native, spent a year in Turkey as a Fulbright Scholar after graduating from MIIS. The Monterey Peninsula resident currently provides strategic support to nonprofit leaders through her consulting firm, Your Development Solutions. Twenty years after Tiger Woods came back to win the 2000 Pebble Beach Pro-Am, the five-time Masters champion is redesigning the Peter Hay golf course in Pebble Beach. The 670-yard short course by Woods' TGR design firm will feature a 20,000 square-foot putting facility and holes ranging from 47 to 106 yards in length—including one hole that replicates the legendary par-3 seventh hole of the Pebble Beach Golf Links.

We Hike, Inc., which connects Monterey County youth to outdoor experiences, won in the Social Venture category. Renewable energy startup infiniRel earned a nod in the Venture division, and the waste-tracking app Howe Neat took top Student Division honors.
