2012 Charlottesville Area Better Business Challenge Awards Night

106 businesses are in competition – Don’t miss the unveiling!

The Better Business Challenge has been a year-long endeavor by local Charlottesville area businesses to increase their efficiency through sustainable actions. Participating businesses selected the right actions for them from among 6 scorecard categories, received individual consultations from UVa Student Concierges, attended Lunch n’ Learn trainings on hot topics, traded tips and successes, and ‘walked the walk.’

Come celebrate the innovative, inspirational, and interesting approaches businesses took as we roll out the green carpet!

Awards will be given to Challenge Champions, Green Innovator, Kill-o-watt Crackdown winners and more!

Cocktails and Hors D’oeuvres from 10 local restaurants will be served. Coy Barefoot and Teri Kent (Better World Betty) will emcee.

This event is open to the entire Charlottesville community. The ticket price is a suggested donation to offset the costs of the Challenge programming, trainings, and events.
