CHARLOTTETOWN – Feb. 26, 2015 – For a third consecutive year, Radio-Canada Acadie is lending the voice of its “Le Réveil” morning show host Denis Duchesne to the Acadian and Francophone Chamber of Commerce of PEI (CCAFLIPE) to record the biographies of all finalists for the upcoming 13th Acadian Entrepreneurs’ Gala.
“We are extremely lucky to have once again obtained this in-kind contribution from Radio-Canada Acadie since Mr. Duchesne’s great, radio-friendly voice, recorded over a nice musical background, raises the professional standard of our gala evening,” says Raymond J. Arsenault, co-coordinator of the event. “We greatly appreciate the host’s contribution as well as the work of the technical team of his show who are handling the recording and editing of the clips at the Charlottetown studio.”
Participants at the gala will get to hear these voice clips as the finalists are presented.
Each year, explains Arsenault, the Chamber tries to improve the quality of its evening of entrepreneurial recognition. Several people have told him that the CCAFLIPE Gala is among the best of its kind on PEI.
The Gala will be held at the Centre Belle-Alliance in Summerside Saturday, March 14, starting at 5:30 p.m. with a reception, followed by a three-course banquet et 6 p.m. The Young Millionaires Award will be presented first, following by the Chamber’s five regular awards: Young Enterprising Person of the Year, Co-op of the Year, Business Woman of the Year, Distinguished Entrepreneur and President’s Award of Excellence.
Tickets for the Gala are on sale until March 6 at the Centre Belle-Alliance in Summerside, at the Wellington Rural Action Centre and at the RDÉE PEI office at the Carrefour de l’Isle-Saint-Jean in Charlottetown at $30 plus HST for members and $35 plus HST for non-members. Families, friends, employees and colleagues of the finalists are encouraged to attend, as are all members of the Chamber.
