There were no rough seas at this year’s Arvada Chamber of Commerce Annual Dinner held Jan. 26 at the Arvada Center. The cruise ship themed event brought together business owners and community members to honor businesses that make a difference in the community.
The 2017 Business of the Year recipient was Sportline Team Sports, in business in Arvada since 1978. The shop focuses on equipment and uniforms for team sports and works with several of the areas schools and youth leagues.
“It’s a big honor,” Tom Jacobsen, co-owner of the shop said.
The Business of the Year award is a standing tradition within the Arvada Chamber of Commerce to recognize a business that has established a reputation of providing superior customer service while using ingenuity and innovation to overcome challenge.
The chamber also recognized Hope House of Colorado as the Nonprofit of the Year.
Hope House, based in Arvada, serves teen mothers from throughout the metro area. It provide classes including GED, healthy relationships and parenting with the goal of making the young moms self-sufficient.
Hope House also has a residential program and is building a new resource center.
“We were totally surprised,” said Lisa Steven, founder and Executive Director of Hope House for Colorado. “We have been so blessed by the city of Arvada over the past year. It completely surprised us that on top of that, they would think to honor us in that way.”
