Local lawyer Amanda Little has taken out the prestigious Business Person of the Year award at the Penrith City Local Business Awards, while The Day Spa Penrith (Jorja James Spa) won Business of the Year.

This year’s The Penrith City Local Business Awards was a glittering spectacular that provided a fitting finale to the annual event.

This year’s winners exchanged exuberant hugs and cheers filled the room as they made their way to the stage last Wednesday night.

Awards founder and Precedent Productions Managing Director Steve Loe said the evening was an exciting culmination to a successful awards program.

“The Local Business Awards recognise the vital role business people play in the lives of their communities,” he said.

“The presentation evening not only sees the announcement of the category winners but is an opportunity to celebrate the achievements of all the finalists.

“We had a sell-out crowd that included our finalists, their families and staff, as well as our sponsors and local dignitaries, who helped to present awards to the winners.”

Mr Loe said it was great to hear from the winners on the night.

“The winners’ speeches are always heartfelt and emotional,” Mr Loe said.

“This year was no exception. It’s very emotional for everyone there to see their tears and smiles as well as hear the beautiful acceptance speeches.”

Mr Loe thanked the event’s sponsors, including Panthers Penrith for the high quality food and service it provided.

“Thanks to them it was a five-star occasion,” he said.

“I would also like to acknowledge the incredible entertainment provided by Alfie Arcuri and Caitlin Berry and our fabulous MC Paul Hancock who kept the evening flowing smoothly.”
