North Lake Tahoe Chamber Announces 63rd Annual Award Winners
Hundreds of businesses and community leaders recently gathered together at the Resort at Squaw Creek to celebrate the 63rd Annual Community Awards Dinner & Silent Auction. The evening was a celebration where they recognized businesses for their innovation, celebrated their vision, and publicly appreciated their contributions to their employees and our community.
The Annual Awards Dinner celebrates businesses, organizations and individuals who have had a significant impact on North Lake Tahoe during 2016 and also allows businesses the opportunity to recognize volunteers and employees who have gone above and beyond in the last year. This year, the North Lake Tahoe Chamber|CVB|Resort Association gave special recognition to Liberty Utilities, the Placer County Public Works & Facilities and the Placer County Sheriff’s Department for their heroic efforts during “Snowmageddon” 2017.
“The efforts, support and impact of our business community in this region are so vital and yet often go unknown or without expectation of recognition, but that really impact us all,” said Natalie Parrish, the North Lake Tahoe Chamber|CVB|Resort Association Membership Sales & Services Manager. “We are honored to be able to recognize the amazing businesses and the people who work in our community who are such an important part of making North Lake Tahoe so wonderful.”
