Gold Pan Awards

The Anchorage Chamber Gold Pan Awards was established in 1957 and one of the organization’s longest running and one of Anchorage’s more prestigious events. Each year five Gold Pan awards are given to businesses and individuals who have shown business and entrepreneurial excellence and a strong commitment to community service. This is a formal banquet that kicks off gala season in Anchorage.
