CW Leadership Communication - Gala, Golf, & More
What an exciting Annual Awards Gala last Tuesday night! Engaging conversations, renewed friendships and connections, inspirational entertainment, and recognition of some amazing businesses! Many thanks to Julie Cluff, Debbie White, Nicole Odekirk, Jaci Sides-Mills, Oz Hutton, Mace Molen, and Bob Ekstrom for all their hard work on another successful CW event! We were able to recognize and learn more about some great businesses and volunteers with three finalists in five different award categories. Although all our finalists were deserving, like the Oscars, we had one winner in each category. Please join me in congratulating the following Award Winners:
