Sooke Fine Arts Society nominated for Business Excellence award

The Sooke Fine Arts Society is proud to have been nominated for a Business Excellence award in the non-profit category by the Sooke Region Chamber of Commerce.

The nomination spoke to the Sooke Fine Arts Show’s role and impact, stating: “They are leaders in professional marketing & providing the most artistic event in Sooke. Catherine Keogan as executive director attends to the countless facets of this popular annual event. The show would not happen without her hands-on approach.” In a community that is unusually active in its charitable endeavours, it’s truly an honour to be recognized among so many deserving organizations.
