Gala Awards Night Tickets go on sale

The Chamber is delighted to announce that tickets are on sale for the EnergyAustralia Black Rose Excellence in Business Awards Gala Awards Night 2022.

The Awards night is a cocktail dress event that will be night of entertainment, networking, music, dancing and festivities with special guest MC, Peter Watson from 2LT.

This is the first Awards night that the Lithgow region has hosted for over 15 years.

Chamber Vice-President and Bushfire Local Economic Recovery (BLER) program Director Steve Ring said, ‘The re-introduction of Business Awards for the Lithgow LGA has been made possible by both the Bushfire Local Economic Recovery Funding and by our generous sponsors: Energy Australia, Centennial Coal, Greenspot, Westfund, Family First and Ferrero Australia.’

‘The Awards have been developed in conjunction with Business NSW and most of the winners of Awards will automatically progress to the Regional Awards. In addition, the judges have been sourced by Business NSW from outside of the Lithgow LGA,’ he said.

‘We don’t see the Awards as businesses competing with one another, rather we see it as businesses sharing their stories, sharing ideas and their innovative and or resilience practises. It’s about celebrating what we’ve been through together as a community and where possible, being inspired by each other.’

Entries officially closed Friday 7 October at midnight, with the Chamber receiving 44 entries in eight categories.

According to Vicki Seccombe, Regional Manager Western NSW at Business NSW, who manages the Business Awards entry site, the Chamber should be very pleased with this outcome, considering it’s the Lithgow Chamber’s first year back in over 15 years and with a new online application process.

‘For this first year, we’ve decided that all Award entrants will be finalists in the Awards, meaning that everyone will be featured in our Awards program and will be announced at the Gala Awards Night’, said Mr Ring.

‘We strongly encourage all Award entrants to be part of the festivities. It’s their night and a night for all businesses in the Lithgow region to celebrate. This will be a night to remember so all business people and community members should join in the celebrations! With continued funding from our sponsors from this year, and with support from the business community we want to develop the awards as a major annual event. An event that’s up there with the Highland Ball and the Catholic Ball. We want this to be the Lithgow regions’ business event of the year’, he said.

Tickets can be booked through the Chamber Website – LITHGOW.ORG.AU

Included in the price is dinner, samples of local produce, local alcoholic tasters, live musicians and performers. It will be a night of feasting and festivities.
