We are excited to celebrate our Honoree's!

Crowning 20 years of awards to outstanding women in the area, the Boulder Chamber will honor five new recipients at its annual Women Who Light the Community gala celebration. This year's honorees have helped guide tomorrow's business leaders, provided higher education opportunities to more students, worked to end hunger for our citizens, engaged in global social and environmental issues, and enriched Boulder's cultural and diverse community.  All have made significant contributions in improving our economic vitality and overall quality of life, and one's a first-grade student, exemplifies the promise of tomorrow's budding community leadership.
