VanceAs a hair a makeup stylist, Ashlee Vance is used to make people look good, but it was the work she did to make the Tigard Area Chamber of Commerce glow that set her apart this year.

This month, Vance was named winner of the the 2015 Chamber Ambassadors of the Year award by the Tigard Chamber.

The award is one of several Shining Stars awards given each spring. Vance’s award recognizes outstanding work done by the Chamber’s ambassadors, volunteers who support the chamber by providing information to members, working Chamber events and working to promote the Chamber’s mission.

“Ashlee has taken an active role as an ambassador and both her peer ambassadors, members and guests feel her presence,” the Chamber said.

Outside of her role as a Tigard Chamber Ambassador, Vance is chairwoman of the Tigard Young Professionals committee

Please join us in congratulating Ashlee on this well-deserved award.

Vance’s award will be presented with other Shining Stars awards at a special dinner and ceremony Friday, April 24, at Embassy Suites, 9000 S.W. Hall Blvd.

The Oscars-themed award ceremony includes dinner and silent auction for the Chamber of Commerce.

Tickets cost $35 per person and can be purchased at www.tigardchamber.org.
