Music artist Todd Richard to perform at Excellence Awards dinner in February

The 2013 Business Excellence Awards ceremony will feature all the accoutrements of years past. There are the prestigious awards, along with a night filled with top notch entertainment, great food and dancing.

But this year, guests are invited to put away those ball gowns and tuxedos, toss away those top hats, and switch gears for a more casual affair.

The entertainment for the night will be provided by Harrison Hot Springs based recording artist, Todd Richard and the TR Band.

The awards are once again being sponsored by Harrison Agassiz Chamber of Commerce, Harrison Hot Springs Resort & Spa and the Agassiz Harrison Observer.

More sponsorships are available, and are a great way for local businesses to network and promote good business relationships, says Andrew Franklin, publisher of the Observer. Nominations are already coming into the Observer office, and forms can be found in the newspaper for more details.

Tickets for the awards evening, being held on Thursday, Feb. 28 from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m., are $60 per person, or $440 for a table of eight. Tickets at the Observer, through Chris Franklin at 604-796-4301.
