In September of 2019, BOYD Kelowna was nominated for 2 business excellence awards through the Kelowna Chamber of Commerce. Large Business of the year and Social Leadership were the two categories. From a fairly detailed submission, we were selected as finalists in both segments, which in itself was an honor. On November 1st, at the Gala to our great surprise and excitement we won the Social Leadership award!
This is a very honored, humbling and gracious recognition. Part of the guiding core among the owners, staff and long list of volunteers here at BOYD is leading the way for business to know, giving back to our community is vitally important. Not just in a monetary donation, but taking the initiative to raise public awareness for some great organizations that are focused on serving and benefiting the Okanagan – Cops for Kids, Child Advocacy Centre, The Kelowna SPCA, The United Way, Kelowna Family Y, Kelowna Burn Fund, Project Literacy – are but a few very worthy and deserving charities we are proud to align with and help.
Thank you to the Kelowna Chamber, the judges who came out to interview & inspect our facilities, all our fellow nominees and all the winners of business excellence from the Kelowna Chamber. Know that when you Bring it to BOYD, you in turn help us – #Boydgivesback.
