As the Patron Sponsor, Baker Tilly will have the honour of presenting the Small Business of the Year and Large Business of the Year Awards at the upcoming Celebrate Success Business Awards Dinner in April.
Juanita Polegi, Executive Director of the Yorkton Chamber of Commerce is pleased Baker Tilly is the Patron Sponsor of the Awards event.
“The Celebrate Success Business Awards Dinner is the premier business awards event in Yorkton,” she said. “To have Baker Tilly, a successful local business that supports many activities and events in the community as the Patron Sponsor of this Dinner, is an attestation of the value the company places on the Awards and the event.”
Darcy Spilchen, CEO and Finance Partner of Baker Tilly SK LLO, said company is proud to be the major sponsor of the event.
“Baker Tilly is proud to sponsor the Celebrate Success Business Awards Dinner”, he said.
“It’s an important event to the business community that recognizes the success of Yorkton businesses with many good news stories to tell.”
Spilchen added the sponsorship was also “an opportunity to support the Chamber in its efforts.”
The Chamber urges business owners and senior managers to apply for an award in one or more of the nine categories for business. There is also an award for community organizations and events.
“Consider the awards as an inexpensive, positive form of marketing with the potential for great returns,” said Polegi. “It costs you nothing but some time to apply for an Award. You know your business better than anyone so tell your story.”
An independent ‘Judging Panel’ will be convened to select the finalists and recipients in each award category. The panel will also select, from all the completed application packages, the recipient of the Small and Large Business of the Year Awards.
Other categories for which applications will not be accepted include the Business Leader of the Year Award and the Peoples’ Choice Award.
The Celebrate Success Business Awards Dinner will be held April 6 at St. Mary’s Ukrainian Cultural Centre.
Application forms for the various awards are available online or from the Chamber office. Deadline for submitting applications is noon Feb. 16.
