It was a spectacular night at the Riverhouse Convention Center with the who’s who of Bend’s business community gathering for the 2018 SAGE Business Awards, presented by the Bend Chamber and U.S. Bank. This perennial event continues to honor the commitment, innovation, and vision it takes for the region’s most exceptional businesses, nonprofits, and citizens to succeed, and celebrates their heartfelt dedication to creating a community that grows and thrives together.
“The SAGE Business Awards is such an exciting event. Each of the nominees is deserving of the award they were nominated for and, in my mind, are all winners,” shared Coby Horton, Regional President at U.S Bank. “The field of nominees was one of the strongest we’ve ever had in the 29-year history of the SAGE awards,” commented Robin Rogers, EVP of Programs and Events at the Bend Chamber.
“The SAGE Awards is how our business community celebrates each other, and recognizes those who have done outstanding things not only for their business, but for the community,” said Katy Brooks, Bend Chamber CEO. “The Bend Chamber is thrilled to have so many exceptional members and honored to provide a forum of recognition that highlights just how remarkable the Bend business community is,” she added.
