Movers and shakers of the Karratha business world let their hair down with a throwback to the 1920s last week at a glamorous gala dinner for the 2018 Karratha and Districts Chamber of Commerce and Industry Business Excellence Awards.
Sequins, fringed dresses, suspenders and bow ties abounded among the more than 250 people who attended the Tambrey Function Centre on Saturday, October 27, to see the region’s top businesses receive awards across 16 categories.
Mining contractor NEMMS JV took home the major prize of business of the year.
The night’s top sartorial award for best-dressed went to Sarah Winfield (women’s winner) and Phil Brown and David Taylor (joint men’s winners). A sumptuous venue set-up by Wrapped Creations and a Charleston-inspired opening dance number by Karratha dance school Dance FX also added to the sense of 1920s glamour.
KDCCI chief executive Kylah Morrison said encouraging guests to dress to the event theme had been a fun new addition to this year’s awards night.
She said it was good to see that so many guests made the effort to dress up.
