Aurora Mayor Mike Coffman and various city council members also joined this event to interact with business owners in the city of Aurora. Since this year’s theme was ‘Wild West’ and the dress code was ‘Western Wear,’ many participants showed up to the event wearing cowboy T-shirt and hats. Participants looked excited to meet each other again after long COVID-19 pandemic and shared their stories to encourage each other.

As the event progressed, the award ceremony was held which included awards such as ‘Arts + Business Connection Award,’ ‘Business of the Year,’ ‘Businessperson of the Year,’ ‘Chamber Leadership Award,’ ‘Woman of the Year,’ ‘Man of the Year,’ ‘Humanitarian Award,’ ‘Community Leadership Award,’ ‘Small Business of the Year,’ and ‘Ken Melcher Ambassador of the Year Award.’ The recipients looked honored and encouraged to be receiving the awards and shared their impression and thoughts about past rough years.

The participants shared goodbyes and promised to meet again at the next year’s annual gathering.
