Arvada is stirring — or at least it was during the Arvada Chamber of Commerce’s 91st annual dinner, Jan. 21 — with the celebration of the business, nonprofit and ambassador of the year.
”We’re an engaging organization that really does care about the businesses and people in the community and we want people to recognize that,” Kami Welch, president of the chamber said.
Taking nearly 260 guests back to the Public Enemy era where fugitives like Bonnie and Clyde were rampant and crime was everywhere, attendees took part in a modern who-done-it style mystery. The event, held at the Arvada Center for the Arts and Humanities, 6901 Wadsworth Blvd., celebrated winners, praised up-and-coming leaders, and raised money for local organizations through a silent auction.
