PEOPLE have been voting in their thousands for nominees in an upcoming awards ceremony to honour workers in the Kerry hair and beauty salons.
The inaugural Connect Kerry Hair And Beauty Awards take place on Sunday, March 12 from 3pm in The Rose Hotel and the event is close to selling out.
Margaret Kissane, Publisher/Editor of Connect Publications said she is astonished at the amount of votes cast.
“It’s amazing. There has been over 10,500 votes cast already and it’s one vote per email address. The great thing is that all the categories are so close with very little between the nominees so far,” said Margaret.
The awards grew out of the Connect Kerry Women in Business Awards held every June and will be held to recognise the industry in the county which provides so many jobs.
There are 15 categories and the nominees are drawn from all over the county. If you haven’t cast your vote, you can do so by clicking here to see all the nominees and make your choice.
An afternoon of fun glitz and glam is guaranteed at The Rose Hotel, with bubbly on arrival, a four course meal with wine, awards ceremony and lots of extras through the day and the (in)famous after party.
There will be a raffle on the night for charity with some great prizes. All this for €50 a ticket and there’s just a few left. For tickets or more info call 086 2408237.
There is also a call gone out to nominate ladies for the Connect Kerry Women in Business Awards this June. Message Connect Kerry via their Facebook page here for more details on how to nominate or call Margaret on the number above for more details.
