The 4th Annual Business Excellence Awards Gala at the Prestige Mountain Resort in Rossland was another great success. A sold out crowd of local business owners and community stakeholders joined us for an evening of celebration, great food, entertainment and laughter! We wanted to say congratulations to the top 5 nominees and especially the winners of this year's Business Excellence Awards! All of the business nominees should be very proud and we are lucky to have you as part of our community.

The event was a huge success and we hope everyone that attended had a fun evening. We count on fundraisers such as the gala to assist the Chamber in serving our member's needs. We're looking forward to the 5th Annual Business Excellence Awards next year and hope to see you there!
