The Anchorage Chamber's 66th Annual Gold Pan Awards Route 66 will be held on Friday, November 17, 2023, at the Dena'ina Center. Chamber members and community leaders can participate in games of giving for a chance to win prizes like two roundtrip tickets on Alaska Airlines, two 7-day cruise tickets courtesy of Royal Caribbean International, and a dinner for four at Glacier Brewhouse; photo ops courtesy of Photo Emporium Alaska; and a plated dinner. Proceeds from the games go to foster future Anchorage Chamber events and programs.
"The Anchorage Chamber Gold Pan Awards is a hallmark recognition program for our community, shining a spotlight on civic leadership", says Kathleen McArdle, President & CEO. For 66 years, Gold Pan Awards have been awarded to those who have shown business and entrepreneurial excellence, as well as a loyal commitment to Anchorage through community service. We can't wait to celebrate these incredible achievements from Anchorage's strongest supporters alongside you this November.
