The West Vancouver Chamber’s President’s Dinner & Business Excellence Awards took place last week at the West Vancouver Yacht Club. Every year, it is an excitement packed evening honouring nominees throughout the community in categories like Best Big Business, Best Small Business, Best New Business, Best Innovator, Young Entrepreneur and Citizen of the Year. Auction items and a formal buffet dinner were also part of the night. An extra special feature this year was the addition of the Mulgrave School Junior Filmmaker students who prepared individual films to honour each nominee.
