Each year two Robert Chadima Visionary Awards are given out to individuals who embody and inspire the type of leadership, open-mindedness, and vision shown by Robert Chadima.  He was a man of many talents where his family, business, and community were concerned. Robert invested in The Cherry Building when others had little interest or faith in the future of the neighborhood.  He was instrumental in launching and nurturing what we know today as New Bohemia.  Robert passed away in 2016 and this award is given in his memory and in the hope of recognizing many others who carry on his work. The honors will be publicly awarded during the Czech Village New Bohemia District’s Annual Luncheon later this year.
