The Fernie Chamber of Commerce is encouraging the community to vote for their favourite local business in the People’s Choice Award. The voting in this category of the 2020 Virtual Fernie Business Excellence Awards is currently open and will close at 5:00pm this Sunday 4 October.
Voting for the People’s Choice Award is online here and can also be found on the Fernie Chamber Facebook page.
The award applications for the 12 other categories are currently with the judges, and the Fernie Chamber looks forward to announcing the finalists in each category next week. The winners in each category will be announced during the virtual awards gala which will be streamed from 6pm on Friday 23 October 2020.
You can register to view the streamed 2020 Virtual Fernie Business Excellence Awards by visiting the event page at the Fernie Chamber website for only $10. Alternatively, you can register to view the event live at the Fernie Royal Canadian Legion bar. Local celebration kits for the evening are available now for pre-order from the Fernie Chamber and include a charcuterie board by the Chopstick Truck, exclusive cocktails from Fernie Distillers, and handmade chocolates from Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory.
In a year that has been as difficult and challenging for local businesses as any other year in memory, we look forward to celebrating the excellence and resiliency of the Fernie business community.
