The awardees were honored at the 30th annual GPCC IMPACT Awards luncheon, May 10, at the Arizona Biltmore Resort.

In addition to showing the arts performances in multiple disciplines, from Broadway and around the globe, ASU Gammage also drives the Valley’s economy by attracting patrons from across the state whose business helps local organizations flourish as well. 

Although part of the university, ASU Gammage operates as a self-sustaining business. The majority of its funding comes from its Broadway series and the rest comes from philanthropy. This business model, driven by private support and ticket sales with no funding from the university or the state, runs like a business, but with the heart of a nonprofit.

The luncheon honored all eight IMPACT Award winners including the Center for Entrepreneurial Innovation, Crisis Response Network, Inc., ASU Gammage, Redflex Traffic Systems, Inc., Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, Southwest Airlines, EPCOR Water USA and Sonora Quest Laboratories.

“This year’s IMPACT Awards recipients are a testament to the success that can be achieved through dedication to leadership, innovation and community,” said Greater Phoenix Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Todd Sanders. “These businesses and organizations will continue to drive the growth of the Greater Phoenix region for years to come.”
