On Sunday, October 19, 2014, Chrysalis Edmonton hosted the 24th Annual Achievement Awards Ceremony presented by Servus Credit Union at the DoubleTree by Hilton West Edmonton.
This annual event is easily one of the most highly anticipated events of the year for the individuals accessing Chrysalis programming as it is their big chance to be recognized for the hard work, dedication and accomplishments witnessed over the past year. This year nearly 70 total recipients were recognized at the ceremony including over 60 service individuals, DATS drivers, community partners and volunteers who help make Chrysalis the organization it is today.
Nearly 200 people filled the ballroom at the DoubleTree including recipients and their families. Special guests included Chrysalis Charitable Foundation board members, hoards of Chrysalis staff and Tamara Greenwood who brought greetings on behalf of Servus Credit Union and helped present the Servus Credit Union Community Award
Dressed in their Sunday best, award recipients happily accepted their certificates and trophies during the two hour program and we more than happy to smile for pictures which were taken by Linda Patterson of Timeless Edge Photography.
The highlight of the program was the presentation of our 8 Major Awards which are handed out each year to very deserving winners. This year’s Major Awards winners are as follows…
Erica Richards, Growth and Opportunity Award
Corey Smith, Bradley Bidlock Award
Micaela Garber, Milestones to Achievement Award
Edmonton Public Library, Chrysalis Partnership Award (Volunteer)
Nicole Chalifoux, Servus Credit Union Community Award
