Congrats to our GenXYZ Top 25 Young Professionals!
The awards event was a night to remember!
The 7th Annual GenXYZ event was a blast! More than 200 successful young professionals from across Colorado turned out for an evening of surprises, featuring Denver7 reporter Eric Lupher as emcee, with a special appearance by Denver Mayor Michael Hancock.
The venue, Mile High Station, provided the perfect scene to honor our Top 25 Young Professionals, along with our Top 5 winners of the night and the 2016 Fan Favorite.
Footers catered with two food stations, one station served pulled pork sliders and a potatoes bar with all the trimmings. The other, a full quesadilla bar that kept guests coming back to try the variety of salsas.
Back by popular demand were DJ RIPM, Gusto Studio Booth and Arapahoe County Library. Also, thanks to American Furniture Warehouse for adding a touch of flare by setting up two lounges! It was a night for the books, and we look forward to next year for our 8th annual GenXYZ awards!
Here's a list of all the winners, including the top five winners and this year's Fan Favorite, Justin Levy, who were voted on by their peers via social media. A panel of cross-sector judges decided which of the 100-plus nominations received this year would be among the 25 finalists for the GenXYZ Awards― a difficult task, as the competition was fierce.
Please scroll through the list, then enjoy great photos from the evening!
