New Approach! The 2015 celebration will feature a networking social format with our award winners stationed throughout the room, rather than a formal seated dinner. Throughout the evening, Prospera announcements and awards will be presented from the main stage while delicious food is circulated by banquet staff and served at food stations. Seating will also be available in the ballroom and the foyer to allow for informal gatherings and quiet conversations. This new approach is intended to foster lively conversations and meaningful connections, with the chance to meet each of the award winners as you enjoy the festivities and try your luck in the raffle!

Thank You to our Event Sponsors
