Tickets are now on sale for the 2009 Far North Regional Awards ceremony. The event will be held on 3rd November at the Standpipe Golf Motor Inn in Port Augusta. The event promises to be a spectacular affair with all nominees and entrants invited to attend as well as key figures from the Far North region.
“The Far North event will be an excellent way for the local community to celebrate a fantastic year, said the SA Great Chief Executive, Ms Nikki Seymour-Smith. “We are really encouraging the Far North community to come along to this ceremony to make sure the State’s regional successes don’t go unnoticed”.
The ceremony is the perfect forum for the Far North community to get together and recognise the great things local people are doing for this region. Community leaders, volunteers, businesses and people alike who entered this year’s awards now begin the nervous wait to find out who takes out the top honours.
