The Calgary Choice Awards for 2012/13 were an awesome success. Saturday was a fantastic evening at the BMO Center. I was there for a good portion of the day setting up for the Silent Auction. Our planning committee had a very busy week prior to the event! It was last minute pick ups and changes. The evening was now here and the nominees began to arrive. It was glitz and glamor and tons of fun.
I think people loved the red carpet. It makes you feel like a modern day celebrity.. a star for the evening.
I had the wonderful opportunity to connect and meet with some of Calgary's finest! I had the pleasure to meet with Calgary's own Bernard Callebaut and his wife, Francesca of Papa Chocolat. Each guest was given a Chocolate Papa Chocolate Business Card at our dinner tables. It was melt in your mouth heaven. http://papachocolat.ca/
One lucky gentleman won the Papa Chocolate Door prize of a gift basket of Papa Chocolat. Delicious!
Perry Thompson of Perry Thompson Photography was a true professional with top notch photography! I was delighted to have met Perry. His work is amazing. I urge you to check out the Red Carpet photos of the 4th Annual Calgary Choice awards.. Fabulous fun! https://perphoto.com/vend-proofing/?/set/fc58/calgarychoiceawards2013/
There were some great steals of deals at the live auction. Massage for a year, DK Envy Spa and Beauty Baskets, Flip Factory Fun,Comedy Monday Nights Bag of Laughs, Chocolate making with Bernard himself and too many great things to list.
I Highly Recommend the event to all Calgarians. Let's all get behind it and support Calgary's entrepreneurial spirit. Thank you Calgary Choice Awards and Shannyn for making this part of Calgary's fun things to do!
