Post Event Update: Business Awards Gala 2015

October 27, 2015


On Friday, October 23, 2015, over 150 people gathered at the Centre de Loisirs to celebrate the achievements of businesses, organizations and individuals in the Kapuskasing District.


Not only were local businesses honoured, but many aspects of the evening focused on local products and talent. The cocktail hour featured appetizer stations of local artisan cheeses and breads, as well as vodka distilled in the nearby town of Hearst. Even the keynote speaker was local!


The guests received the red carpet treatment: served champagne, flambéed appetizers, four-course meal, VIP lounge... take a look at the evening photos here and the awesome video prepared by Near North Media!
