TRALEE Chamber Alliance has launched a new monthly award for people who have made a positive impact to Tralee through their business and working lives.
Each recipient will have contributed to the economic and community development of the town over the course of their careers.
The President of Tralee Chamber Alliance, John Drummey, said: “This new award scheme, which follows on from last year’s Tidy Business Premises Awards, hopes to highlight and acknowledge those who have either made a significant difference to the town of Tralee in business or through their community input. We have many heroes in the business sector who are not publicly recognised for the work they do to improve and enhance life the lives of those around them every day. This award aims to shine a light on each person who deserves recognition for their business achievements.”
Each monthly award winner will be selected by a panel of judges who are involved in the business and community sectors in Tralee.
The Tralee Business People Award recipients for January and February will be announced in March and each will receive specially commissioned handmade pieces from local craft makers, Terence MacSweeney and David Condon.
Tralee-based photographer, Pauline Dennigan, will photograph each of the 12 monthly winners and their portraits will be featured in an exhibition and 2018 Tralee calendar.
The proceeds from the sale of the calendar will be donated to Tralee charities. For more information, please contact Tralee Chamber Alliance on 066 7121472 or email info@Tralee.ie.
