Land of Opportunity Award

About the Land of Opportunity Award:

2016 Honoree Lila Aguirre

The Building One Community Land of Opportunity Award recognizes a local resident who immigrated to the greater Stamford area and whose accomplishments embody the realization of the American Dream, through their own personal success as well as their contributions to the community as a whole.

Each year, the Land of Opportunity Award is presented at Building One Community’s Annual Spring Benefit Breakfast. This year’s event will be held Wednesday, May 24th, 2017 at the Stamford Marriott Hotel & Spa.

The Land of Opportunity Award honors the perseverance and resilience demonstrated by the awardee in his or her pursuit of success and commitment to building one strong community. It was established in recognition of immigrant residents' best talents, fresh perspectives, new ideas, businesses and vibrant diversity.
