Focus pays for disability group
THE not-for-profit organisation ON-FOCUS won a swag of awards at the Casino Business Awards ceremony on Saturday night.
More than 280 people turned out for the red carpet event to support the 60 nominated Casino businesses.
The event, which aimed to recognise outstanding business excellence in Casino, awarded 13 businesses, with ON-FOCUS taking out the major award of Business of the Year.
ON-FOCUS provides support and training to people with disabilities, enabling them to lead independent lives within the community.
CEO Fiona Miller said she had been overwhelmed by the amount of awards they received, which also included the Thomas George Perpetual trophy, The Northern Star's $2500 advertising grant and the Professional Services trophy.
“This is a great reward not just for the hard team of 45 workers but for the disability industry as well,” Ms Miller said.
Event organiser Jannie Stevens said she had been pleased with the sell-out crowd.
“It's allowed businesses to showcase and network,” Mrs Stevens said.
