The Cape Breton Partnership is proud to host the Vital Cape Breton Excellence Awards at Centre 200 on November 20 from 5:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. The Awards were created to honour young Cape Bretoners and local employers who are making a significant impact in their community or workplace through their commitment to making Cape Breton-Mulgrave a better place to live, work and play.
The Vital Awards capture the essence of Cape Breton’s up-and-coming generation, with the event bringing together like-minded people who are doing great things for Cape Breton-Mulgrave. The Partnership invites you to attend a vibrant evening that will highlight the achievements made by individuals and organizations that are helping to make Cape Breton a more rewarding place to live and do business.
