The 2020 Spring Gala, presented by the Buena Vista Chamber of Commerce, will be held on Saturday, May 2, 2020. The evening will be an opportunity for community members to mingle and celebrate the year ahead. During the formal program, we will recognize a Business of the Year, Nonprofit of the Year and Student of the Year. The Chamber staff and board of directors will not be eligible to nominate anyone or vote for winners, that is why it is so important that we hear from you, the community, on who you want to see receive these these awards. Chaffee County High School and Buena Vista High School will submit nominees for the Student of the Year and the community will make the final vote for that category as well.

If you have any questions about the process, please contact:
