chamber event 4

Food and drink galore



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.
