FULL - GEM Award Ceremony

May 19 - May 19, 2022

Preservation Month is capped by one of Coronado's most treasured community awards. In 2013, CHA debuted Coronado’s Going the Extra Mile (GEM) Award in honor of local historic preservation. The award was sparked by inspired efforts of homeowners to preserve and restore, rather than replace existing homes, and turn potential tear-downs into architectural GEMs. Annually, CHA recognizes homeowners who Go the Extra Mile to create GEM homes in Coronado. Watch for articles throughout the month announcing this year’s top three nominees.

This event is sold out.

The 2022 GEM Award is generously sponsored by:
