Busi­ness Awards

Pilbara News - - Life Style - Ali­cia Per­era

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.
