And the Philanthropy Award goes to….Cripple Creek & Florissant Ace Hardware, Lumber & Supply

We are very pleased to announce that Terri and Mur Woods and Cripple Creek & Florissant Ace Hardware, Lumber & Supply are the proud recipients of the 2017 Colorado Springs and Pikes Peak Region business sector Philanthropy Award! This award is sponsored by the Cultural Office of the Pikes Peak Region and the Colorado Springs Chamber of Commerce & EDC. The announcement was made at a Business and Arts Lunch that recognizes arts supporters from the business sector at the Antlers hotel on October 6th.

According to the Colorado SpringsĀ Gazette, each July the local community is invited to nominate candidates for three different categories including creative workspace, philanthropy, and business leader. The winners are selected by a volunteer jury of local artists, business persons, and philanthropists.

The Gazette states, “The philanthropy award recognizes outstanding business citizenship through financial contributions and in-kind support to the arts and culture.

Cripple Creek Ace Hardware has been a staunch ally of Cripple Creek’s Thin Air Theatre Company and its home, The Butte Theater, for more than a decade. The store offers in-kind contributions of production materials, which helps increase the production value of Thin Air shows.

“This locally owned business has developed a long-term, meaningful and multi-faceted relationship with a neighboring arts organization,” noted a video.

As owners and employees of Cripple Creek & Florissant Ace Hardware, Lumber & Supply, we appreciate the support of our community and believe in giving back as much as we can. We are thrilled to have been nominated and then chosen as the winner of the 2017 Colorado Springs & Pikes Peak Region Philanthropy Award. You, our customers, neighbors, nearby businesses, and the Butte Theater made this possible and we thank you for that. We are very honored to have received this award and we look forward to continuing our partnership and involvement with our local communities and the art sector within those communities.

Thank you, again!
