These awards, presented at our annual celebration, recognize community leaders, projects and events demonstrating collaboration to the overall benefit of the community. Honoring more than 250 projects since 2004, this event sells out annually with more than 400 attendees.

We are excited to present this year’s event in a modified format to ensure everyone is safe and comfortable.
