The Gold Pan Awards recognize local businesses each year that demonstrate business excellence, entrepreneurial excellence, and distinguished community service. Business Excellence nominees are evaluated based on the quality and innovation of their goods or services, contributions to the economic vitality of Anchorage, and proven track record of adaptability and sustainability.
Chairman of the Board Sheri Buretta accepted the award on behalf of Chugach during the Chamber Met Gala: A Night of Alaskan Art, held Friday, Nov. 18 at the Dena’ina Center.
“To accept the Gold Pan Award in the same year that we celebrate Chugach’s 50th golden anniversary is an honor,” said Chugach Chairman Sheri Buretta. “For five decades, our people have honed the critical skill of resilience – not only surviving but thriving in the face of hardship. I know our original founders would be proud to see that our current leaders and employees have continued to carry their legacy forward to create growth for the corporation and prosperity for our people.”
