The 2015 Northwest Alberta Sport Excellence Awards - An Event Worth Growing.
A heartfelt thank you to everyone that supported the Sport Excellence Awards on Saturday. That goes for the sponsors all the way through to the families & team members that came out to celebrate the nominees.
It was a packed house. Our Emcee Tom Pura (Chamber of Commerce & Sport Fan Extraordinaire) set the stage for a fun, professional event and Ryan Blais (former Canadian Freestyle Team Member & Special Guest) put the evening into full motion with his inspirational 'What is your legacy going to be?' talk.
The winners of the evening walked down the red carpet while their chosen song was played by resident DJ Jay Fresh.
