Cloverdale Chamber names Clovie Awards finalists for 2022

Surrey’s most prestigious business awards to be handed out Nov. 16 at Hazelmere G&TC

The Cloverdale District Chamber of Commerce has named its Clovie Awards finalists for 2022.

Executive director Scotty Wheatley made the announcement at the Chamber’s monthly luncheon Oct. 18. (See list of nominees below.)

“This year, we received more than 150 nominations from members of our business community,” said Wheatley. “Our judging committee had a difficult time selecting the finalists due to the high caliber of the submissions.”

Wheatley will now send the nominee names out to this year’s three judges. They will then decide on the winner for each category.

The winners will be unveiled at the Clovies Awards gala on Nov. 16 at Hazelmere Golf and Tennis Club.

Money raised through the Clovies helps fund the Chamber’s programs, business services, and the Cloverdale Rodeo Youth Initiative Foundation.

Wheatley said more than 200 business and community leaders attend the Clovies each year. Along with the awarding of the shiny-green Clovie trophies, the night also features “a live and silent auction, on-site entertainment, and a gourmet dinner.”

This year the emcee is Bruce Hayne.

Tickets can be purchased on theclovies.com and early bird pricing is in effect until Oct. 26.
