Banner Thunderbird Medical Center in Glendale and the Arizona Broadway Theatre in Peoria were big winners Thursday night at Westmarc’s 19th Annual Best of the West Awards celebration at the Renaissance Glendale Hotel & Spa.

Banner Thunderbird received the Economic Engine award for its $290 million dollar buildout completed earlier in 2011.

The construction was a huge economic boost with hundreds of jobs for construction workers and hundreds of new medical center employees. Banner Thunderbird is the city’s largest private employer.

Arizona Broadway Theatre received the Quality of Life Enhancement award.

The theatre, which opened its doors in 2005 with live stage productions, also has learning opportunities for children with its Academy for Young Performers and its Camp Broadway program.

ABT Artistic Director Cassandra Klaphake and her husband, ABT Executive Director Kiel Klaphake, accepted the award.

“So often people are looking east,” he said “Finally, we have something in the West Valley. Finally, we have something we can be proud of.”

The John F. Long Lifetime Achievement award recipient was Maricopa County Board of Supervisor Max Wilson.

Wilson has been involved with many organizations and a West Valley leader for more than 45 years. He has been on the board since 2002. Wilson thanked individuals for showing up to see him receive his award and said there were more friends than he could count.
