Boulder CEOs, executives, entrepreneurs, and rising stars feted and Schmoozed last night at the Millennium Harvest House. The event ‘Celebration of Leadership’ was promoted by The boulder Chamber: “celebration as we honor the executives who shape our community and pioneer the path to innovation”. Guests were celebrating with beverages, and delicious Hor D’ oeuvres while contemplating which item to bid for.
Basically it was an excuse to get together and party for $95.00
This fun evening included a special awards celebration, silent auction, delicious food, and of course, time to connect with friends and colleagues in the Boulder business community. The Celebration of Leadership is not just a who’s who social event; it’s also a fundraiser to support the nonprofit Boulder Chamber’s efforts to strengthen the local business community. As the region’s flagship business support and advocacy organization, the Boulder Chamber helps promote economic success, influence policy, and facilitate valuable businesses connections. according to the Chamber of commerce website.
One of the hot ticket items was a round of Golf with CU athletic director Mike Bohn.
Approximate 300 attended .Demetri & Kim Couponas, Co founder of Go Lite, Mark Retzloff from Alfalfa’s, and Brad Feld were some of the usual suspects big wigs to attend.
Our Marketing Gal about town Alli Winchester was there looking fashionable as ever and buttonholing.
Taylor Roberts, a University of Colorado at Boulder senior majoring in architectural engineering, is an example of the growing number of CU-Boulder students who are civically engaged.
Roberts is co-president of the CU-Boulder chapter of GlobeMed, a national student organization focused on improving the health of impoverished people. The organization has 19 chapters across the nation that partner with different grassroots groups that work in communities throughout the developing world.
CU-Boulder’s chapter is partnered with Himalayan HealthCare Inc., a nonprofit organization that works to improve health care services, support education and create employment opportunities in villages in rural Nepal.
Before joining GlobeMed, Roberts got his first taste of civic engagement through his involvement in CU-Boulder’s Presidents Leadership Class and Engineers Without Borders.
“Both of these organizations helped push me in the direction of becoming civically engaged at CU-Boulder and becoming active with the GlobeMed organization,” Roberts said.
Roberts traveled to Tipling, Nepal, last summer with the CU-Boulder GlobeMed chapter, where he spent a lot of his time working with Project C.U.R.E.
“Project C.U.R.E. is an organization that donates medical supplies and services,” said Roberts. “They donated $100,000 worth of medical supplies to Tipling.”
The supplies included common surgical instruments, laboratory and diagnostic tools and machines for operating and delivery rooms, according to Roberts.
While in Nepal, Roberts and three other GlobeMed students worked on a community education project, which included teaching a women’s empowerment course and volunteering at two elementary schools. They also built a latrine for the community, a key component of maintaining a clean water supply.
Since returning from his trip to Nepal, Roberts has been focusing not only on graduation, which is quickly approaching next spring, but also on continuing the GlobeMed legacy at CU-Boulder.
“We’ve got our chapter solidified,” said Roberts. “It’s a fairly selective process, but it’s a good opportunity for students to learn about global health issues.”
After graduation, Roberts plans to pursue a professional engineering certificate, a process that will lead to becoming a licensed engineer.
“I want to move into engineering for developing communities,” he said.
Roberts encourages CU-Boulder students to get involved with GlobeMed, especially since the organization works closely with the university to foster a positive environment for civic engagement. His involvement in the group helped change his perspective on the world.
“I’ve traveled around Europe before, but Nepal was life changing,” said Roberts. “I want to spend a lot of time in Nepal and rural communities. That’s the direction I see my life going.”
