Staff report

TRUCKEE, Calif. — Last week, the Truckee Chamber of Commerce announced the nominations for its annual awards show, to be presented at the Chamber's 63rd annual Dinner and Auction set for October 14 at the Resort at Squaw Creek.

Businesses and individuals are nominated by their peers. The Truckee Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors then reviews all nominations and decides winners in 10 award categories: Small Business (1-10 employees), Small Business (11-49 employees), Large Business, New Business of the Year, Revitalization Award (small and large), Hospitality, Excellence in Government, Non-Profit of the Year, and Volunteer of the Year.

More than 100 people, organizations and businesses are nominated among all awards this year.

The theme of this year's event is "Base Camp for a Big Life" — the chamber's new brand.

"A Big Life means something different things for everyone. It can mean challenging yourself to achieve new heights in outdoor sports, to creating family memories of vacations in the mountains, starting a business you've always dreamed of, or simply spending more time chilling on the docks at Donner Lake," according to a news release from the chamber. "Most of us live in Truckee to be with family, to spend time with friends, to share dreams and to create experiences together. There is a hardworking entrepreneurial spirit that is collaborative, connected.

Cost for attending the October 14 dinner is $90 per person before October 6; reservations are required and seating is limited. Table sponsorships are available. Reservations can be made online at, where you can also view a full list of nominees.
