The Whitby Chamber of Commerce celebrated business excellence at the spectacular Peter Perry & Business Achievement Awards gala on Thursday, November 21, 2019 at Deer Creek Golf & Banquet Facility.
Since 1955, Whitby has had the distinct pleasure of honouring outstanding accomplishments in the community. This tradition continues with publicly recognizing local businesses that have demonstrated a passion for excellence, a commitment to their community and a strong entrepreneurial spirit.
Businesses and individuals were honoured and awarded in six categories. The 2019 recipient for the Best Not for Profit of the Year was awarded to Girls Inc. of Durham.
