We just got home from the city’s arts award ceremony. I still can’t believe we were named as a finalist. Other nominees in our category were Royal Bank, Anna’s Cake House, Concord Pacific Development and Accent Inns to name a few. BIG TIME BUSINESSES!!! And here we are, little CORE Revelation named as a finalist! God’s ways are far beyond our own.
Press release naming the finalists.
When we received the invitation to the awards ceremony, it said to have a three minute acceptance speech prepared incase you are the award recipient. I didn’t prepare one, seeing that the other finalists were Am-Pri Construction and Appia Group of Companies. I did however start thinking about a speech while sitting in the council chambers.
Thank you to the Richmond School District for welcoming CORE Revelation into so many of the elementary and high schools and for continuing to do so. I’m looking forward to teaching at McKay, Westwind and Brighouse in the next month! A huge thank you to the Tapestry Church for allowing us to run our programs from the fellowship hall and for allowing us to mentor dancers who strive to impact our city and our nation through dance. Thanks to all the community centres, dance studios and fitness studios that I’ve had the pleasure of teaching at. It’s been an amazing decade of teaching and look forward to the years to come.
Congrats to the winner in the Business and Arts Category, Appia Group of Companies. For those of you who are not familiar with them, they donated $200,000 towards public art along Lansdowne Road and the Canada Line. What a big honor to even have our name mentioned next to them!
