For 30 years the Bend business community has come together to celebrate and honor the achievements and collaborative spirit of our region’s exceptional businesses and nonprofit organizations through our annual SAGE Business Awards event. We’ve recognized winners in a variety of categories, including large and small business of the year, nonprofit of the year and a “people’s choice” award winner.
For 2020 we’re taking a different approach. With the onset of a global pandemic, our region has been under tremendous strain, and businesses of every size have struggled to overcome the impacts of COVID-19.
We see this as a time to hear, recognize and celebrate the many stories of resilience and innovation occurring in our community every day.
SAGE: Stories of Resilience, powered by US Bank, will shine a light on accounts of survival, told by our business community, as they weather a global pandemic. This is a chance for Central Oregon business owners and organizations to share their challenges and perseverance through photos and video.
We will release SAGE: Stories of Resilience as a three-part, live-streamed video series starting on December 17. Thank you to all 33 businesses that submitted stories!
