The Chandler Chamber of Commerce will honor the city's businesses, educators, public servants and community members at the Chandler Chamber Community Awards held in a different format this year: live and virtually broadcast on Facebook and YouTube.

The event is scheduled for Sept. 23 at 4 p.m., according to a news release from the Chandler Chamber.

The awards ceremony is presented by Gila River Hotels and Casinos and hosted by Dave Specht, the owner of ImprovMANIA in downtown Chandler, according to the release.

“This year, we pivoted and took the virtual approach, keeping everyone’s health and safety in mind. These accolades are too important to postpone and we have some special surprises in store for our viewers. Plus, for the first time, the winners will be announced during the show, so you will have to watch to find out who the winners are,” said Terri Kimble, president and CEO of the Chandler Chamber of Commerce, in the release. “It’s wonderful to have such remarkable people and organizations here in Chandler. They each make unique and valuable contributions to our community and Chamber.”

Viewers of the broadcast will be able to congratulate and engage winners in a chat and win prizes live during the show, according to the release.
