EDC leadership awards to be presented in May
The Colorado Springs Economic Development Corp. likes to have a good time -- and to hand out awards. The non-profit group, which works to bring jobs to town, holds luncheons every few months and at year's end, holds festive receptions to recognize existing companies that have expanded and new ones that have come to town. Next month, the EDC will go black-tie when it hands out its 2006 leadership awards during what it describes as nothing short of a gala. The event will take place at 6:30 p.m. May 5 at the The Broadmoor hotel's International Center on Colorado Springs' southwest side. In addition to the awards, the event includes a live auction, cocktails, dinner and music by the Broadmoor Pops Orchestra. The cost is $175 per person or $1,750 for a table of 10.
