2020 Houston East End Chamber Awards & Scholarship Celebration
After an unprecedented year, join us as we honor East End Thrivers, whose efforts and leadership in 2020 helped our economy and community not only survive, but thrive.
This one-hour live streaming Celebration will be virtual and recognize six "thrivers," organizations and individuals doing exceptional things in our community. We believe that good work deserves to be recognized, even during these unusual times.
We believe that it is now more important than ever to recognize the good happening in the East End Community. Proceeds from the event will further the East End Chamber's mission to connect businesses and promote economic expansion and development in the areas. A portion of the proceeds will benefit our continuing workforce and scholarship initiatives with the youth of the East End Area.
We are proud to announce our 2020 Award Celebration Finalists!
