The Kawartha Chamber of Commerce & Tourism has announced the 25 finalists for the 2017 Awards of Excellence.

The award recipients will be announced at the 18th Annual Awards of Excellence Gala on Friday, November 3rd at Elmhirst’s Resort in Keene.

The Chamber received more than 80 nominations for 60 businesses and organizations, and finalists were selected by a confidential judging panel comprised of five people representing different geographic areas and business sectors.

According to the Chamber, the judges were very impressed by the nominees and found it very challenging to name only one in each category as the recipient. In some categories, they have chosen to recognize more than three finalists.

Tickets for the Awards of Excellence Gala ($85 per person plus HST) are still available and can be reserved online.
