Movers, Shakers, and Famous Lakers: Chamber Announces Business Excellence Awards Nominees

The Williams Lake & District Chamber of Commerce has announced the nominees for the upcoming Business Excellence Awards.

“This is awesome,” said executive director Mark Doratti.

“In the scheme of things we have 70 different nominations throughout the categories that we have which is a few more than we had last year.”

This year’s Business Excellence Awards takes place at the Elks Hall on October 13th with the theme ‘Movers, Shakers, and Famous Lakers.’ Tickets are $85 per person, 2 for $160, or a table for $600, and can be purchased by contacting the Williams Lake Tourism Discovery Centre.

“I look forward to the event,’ Doratti said.

“I had just gotten off the phone from one of the people who was nominated and she said when she got the letter she was near to crying because she’s been in business for so many years and although they’ve been to the business excellence awards they’ve never been nominated.”

“She had no idea where it came from or how it got to be, but was so tickled that she booked her two tickets today.”
