The Delta Chamber of Commerce has announced the finalists for the 66th Annual Hats Off to Excellence Awards Gala to be held on Friday, Nov. 23.
The awards recognize business and community leaders from a wide range of backgrounds who have contributed significantly to the communities of Delta.
“We’re excited to announce this amazing group of finalists for the 67th Annual Hats Off to Excellence Awards. There were over 50 outstanding nominations submitted and the selection committee has selected 27 finalists over nine categories,” said Les Voros, Delta Chamber Chair. “And this year we’re going to continue the new tradition of announcing the Citizen of Year at the awards gala, without any finalists. It was an exciting moment last year and we hope to have it repeated.”
This year’s presenting sponsor of the Hats Off to Excellence Awards Gala is the Port of Vancouver.
