Pilbara News - - Front Page - Ali­cia Per­era

The red car­pet was rolled out for mem­bers of the lo­cal busi­ness com­mu­nity at the 2016 Kar­ratha and Dis­tricts Cham­ber of Com­merce and In­dus­try Busi­ness Ex­cel­lence Awards on Satur­day, Septem­ber 3.

Guests em­braced the rel­a­tively rare op­por­tu­nity to dress up in the Pil­bara for the Kar­ratha busi­ness night of nights, held at the Tam­brey Func­tion Cen­tre, and well and truly rose to the event’s high stan­dard of Hol­ly­wood glitz and glam­our.

After drinks, en­trees and plenty of pho­tos out­side, three break­dancers dressed as golden Os­car stat­uettes grabbed the crowd’s at­ten­tion be­fore MCs Pablo Miller and Angie Ay­ers took to the Tam­brey stage to start pro­ceed­ings.

KDCCI chief ex­ec­u­tive John Lally and pres­i­dent Grant Reilly de­liv­ered speeches prais­ing the state of lo­cal busi­ness and a long list of spon­sors pre­sented the 14 award cat­e­gories up for grabs.

Among the big win­ners was Blanche Bar, which picked up six cat­e­gory awards, in­clud­ing busi­ness of the year, as well as in­duc­tion into the hall of fame for win­ning in hos­pi­tal­ity and tourism for three years run­ning.

Yo-Get-It Kar­ratha won an­other four gongs.

Perth band Lit­tle Belle got the crowd up and danc­ing to see out the night.
