The Kenora & District Chamber of Commerce AGM and Business Awards are coming up Wednesday at Seven Generations Education Institute and now is the time to get your tickets!
The night will get going at 5:00pm with the Annual General Meeting where the new 2019 Board of Direcotrs will be elected followed by a cocktail hour.
6:30pm will see a delicious prime rib buffet served up by Seven Generations, which will be followed by the Awards Banquet. 52 businesses (established and new) have been nominated this year within ten different categories.
Comedian-magician Perry James will hit the stage after the awards ceremony and will be sure to entertain the audience with his hilarious and interactive performance.
"Perry James is the “stand-up comedian who collided head on with traditional magic.” Perry James’ show spans the gamut of comedy and magic; from mind reading “mentalism”, shackle and chain escapes, to the flaming torch through the head. Perry is originally a native of Saskatchewan, but now resides in Vancouver. With over 18 years of experience and more then 2,000+ performances in comedy and magic, Perry James has been entertaining audiences from coast to coast. His stellar performances have amused and amazed people of all ages, cultures, and social backgrounds. Perry has headlined numerous events across North America, having worked with the likes of Brent Butt, “Dean Gunnarson” of escape fame, and the “Bare Naked Ladies”. You may have had the opportunity to see Perry on TV on CTV’S Corner Gas or as part of the nationally televised, “Grand Illusions”, “Speed Demons and Dare Devils”, or one of his other appearances."
Tickets to the banquet are available for $75.00 and you can get them by calling Chamber Manager Kelly Smith at 807-467-4646 or by visiting the Kenora Chamber website.
Carol Leduc is the Vice-President of the Chamber and she joins Monday's Afternoon Drive!
