The Awards Party

The Awards Party is one of the most enjoyable events of the year

The Awards party wraps up the yearly events. This entertaining evening is open to all WBC members, their families and guests. The gala event features a feast fit for royalty. Following the feast, the awards for the year are presented (listed below). The new officers and board members for the upcoming year are also introduced.
The evening is concluded with a gigantic raffle of items donated by members and businesses. The raffle constitutes one of our primary fund-raisers and ensures the club starts the year with sufficient operating capital.

Just some of the raffle prizes typical at this event
