Crystal Chair Award Gala

July 20, 2021
5:00 pm
- 6:30 pm

NAWBO’s founder, Susan Hager, believed that women should bring their chair to the table; if you don’t have one, build it and bring other women with you.

In honor of Susan, this signature event was created to highlight and celebrate Women Business Owners (WBO) and those who support us. We will recognize and honor extraordinary women in our community who have made a commitment to dedicate themselves not only to their businesses, but to the success of other women business owners.

We will present three awards to women who have not only been successful in their businesses, but who have helped other women be successful in theirs and have given back to the community.

Congratulation to our three honorees:

Crystal Chair Lifetime Achievement Award
Celeste Ford, Stellar Solutions

Businesswoman of Distinction
Robin Fisher, Bright Bird Creative

Women Business Advocate of the Year
Mimi Hernandez, Prosperity Lab

$20 – Members/Guests of Members
