The Alliance Center is also excited to present the first-ever Collaborative Award to B Lab, B Local Colorado, University of Colorado Boulder and Gary Community Investments for their dedication, collaboration and leadership to create an inclusive and sustainable economy through business.

In addition to the awards ceremony, guests will hear inspirational stories from speakers including Geri Mitchell-Brown of B Local Colorado and Kara Peck and Kim Coupounas of B Lab, as well as enjoy live music from Deja Blu Variety Dance Band.
