The SAGE Awards will feel different this year as the format will feature hors d’ oeuvres, rather than the traditional seated dinner. You can expect an entertaining, fast-paced program led by talented comedian and soprano soloist, Karen Sipes all in a more intimate venue that invites connection and fun. Guests will walk the red carpet in style, network and enjoy cocktails on the terrace next to the Deschutes River. After the program concludes, the bar will remain open for a short period to have a celebratory libation and to mingle with the SAGE award recipients. See you there!
The Bend Chamber’s SAGE Business Awards, presented by US Bank, recognize the achievements of our region’s most exceptional businesses and organizations. We honor the commitment, innovation, and vision it has taken them to succeed, and we celebrate their heartfelt dedication to creating a community that grows and thrives together.
After a rigorous judging process, the recipient of each award category will be determined and announced at the awards ceremony. Each nominee is also in the running for the coveted People’s Choice Award. The recipient of the People’s Choice Award was determined by online voting that was open to the public.
