Prince George, October 24, 2015 – The Prince George Chamber of Commerce hosted their 2015 Business Excellence Awards tonight at the Civic Centre with more than 350 in attendance. The Business Excellence Awards is an annual event hosted by the Prince George Chamber of Commerce to celebrate excellence in ten traditional award categories as well as the second annual Hell Yeah Prince George Ambassador award, which was added last year.
A 1920s mobster theme was chosen for this year’s event bringing the biggest ‘families’ in business together for an evening of business celebration. Female guests arrived wearing flapper-style shift dresses and feathers in their hair while male guests wore fedoras and suits. Out-of-town comedian Gery Schubert, in character as Tony Martini, kept guests laughing as Event Host. Judy Russell’s Enchainement Dance Group opened the evening with her dancers performing a page boy routine and Tony Martini brought guests up to the stage midway through the night to re-enact a scene from the Godfather movie.
Ten awards were handed out in categories ranging from the prestigious Business Person of the Year to the ever popular Service Excellence Award. Voting for the Hell Yeah Prince George Ambassador Award occurred entirely on Facebook, and in its second year, generated even more votes this year compared to last. This award celebrates people doing positive things to promote the city.
