Over 350 people attended the Chamber of Commerce Business Excellence Awards last night. Ten awards were given out in categories ranging from the prestigious Business Person of the Year to the ever popular Service Excellence Award. For a second year a Hell Yeah Prince George Ambassador Award was also given out. The event had a 1920’s “mobster” theme and people dressed accordingly. Women wearing flapper-style shift dresses and feathers in their hair while male guests wore fedoras and suits.
