The Kicking Horse Country Chamber of Commerce is set to host the 9th Annual Community Excellence Awards Gala on Oct. 19, 2013.

As a part of the Gala, the 2nd annual Golden Nugget awards will be given out to businesses, people and even places around town in a variety of categories including: Most Friendly Cashier, Best Pint Served and Best Place to Propose or Steal a Kiss.

“These are kind of just little fun [awards] but they are also to appreciate what people do,” said Chamber Manager Ruth Hamilton. “This is just a little gratification that we wanted to add on to the [Community Excellence] awards.”

Businesses can sponsor a Golden Nugget award for a fee of $150. In return they will receive two dinner tickets as well as having their logo displayed on the Golden Nugget slideshow during the gala and having their logo featured on a Golden Nugget certificate.

Voting will continue to take place until Aug. 31 and voters can get their nominations in at www.surveymonkey.com/s/2013GoldenNugget.
