Ponoka Chamber business awards voting underway

Celebration of award winners set to go on Oct. 25

There will be a different vibe and venue for this year’s Ponoka and District Chamber of Commerce business awards.

With the loss of their former venue, the Chamber has moved the Oct. 25 event to the auditorium at the Royal Canadian Legion.

And, according to Chamber executive manager Heather Bendera, the awards will simply be about celebrating local business without having a specific theme as was done in past years.

“Nominations for the award categories only just closed last week, while voting will run until Oct. 9 at noon,” she said.

Bendera anticipates the three finalists in each of the eight categories — small business, medium business, large business, agricultural business, industrial business, non-profit, business person and customer service person — will be announced the week prior to the event.

“Once again, there was a great response from the public in submitting a large number of nominations,” she added.

Lacombe’s Tap 9 is returning as the live music entertainment for the evening with Bob Hepp Catering providing the meal.

Things get under way with beverages at 6 p.m. followed by dinner an hour later followed by the start of the awards ceremony.

Tickets are $60 each and available at the Chamber office or by contacting Bendera at (403) 783-3888 or via email at chamberp@telus.net.
