Tickets for the annual event are now on sale through the Mission chamber of commerce

Mission business will celebrate its trailblazers and leaders June 8 at Silverdale Community Hall with new awards and a new format. The awards previously celebrated in October, will be celebrated as part of the Mission Regional Chamber of Commerce’s 120th anniversary.

“We are going back to our roots,” notes Chamber President Sean Melia. “The chamber in Mission was known for great community events like the Strawberry Festival and JC’s dinners, so we thought we would bring back some of the nostalgia and head out to the historic Silverdale Hall.”

Presented by RDM Lawyers LLB, the Awards Gala is the highlight of the business community’s calendar. Businesses and organizations will be acknowledged for their entrepreneurialism, customer service, local focus and community building. New also to this year in the President’s Award, commending an unsung business which exemplifies community spirit.

“As the judges assess the top three nominees this week, the competition gets tight. It is a great time to learn more about the many exemplary businesses we have in Mission,” states Melia. “I look forward to hearing their stories at the Gala.”

Tickets are now on sale and can be purchased on www.MissionChamber.bc.ca or at the chamber’s offices at 34033 Lougheed Hwy. For more information go to the Chamber website.
