Celebrating the Best of the Chippewa Valley   and the Chippewa Valley Vanguard Awards

This is not your typical awards show. In fact, it's not really an awards show at all.

It's a creative, dynamic, and interactive cocktail party — a celebratory evening of food, drinks, music, technology, art, and camaraderie. A chance to celebrate the very best of the Chippewa Valley.
