This year’s event theme is The Oscars! The Chamber encourages people to register for their tickets, dress up for the red carpet (yes, theme dress up is encouraged, but not mandatory!) and come and have some great food and great drinks (thanks to our Drink Sponsor, Muskoka Brewery) with your business community! There will also be a chance to win some prizes, courtesy of Prize Donors, Deerhurst Resort, Muskoka Bay Resort, and Taboo Muskoka! Save the date for April 27th at the Bracebridge Sportsplex.
“We know that a vibrant, competitive and economically sustainable business community is the foundation for a prosperous Muskoka,” said Nicolette Rushton, President of the Bracebridge Chamber of Commerce. “That is why it’s important to recognize and celebrate the achievements of the businesses we have in Bracebridge. It has been a time like no other, and we want to make sure we take the time to acknowledge and celebrate together.
