On Tuesday night, Edmonton City Hall looked more like the venue for a Hollywood awards gala. Large deep blue bubble stars decorated the background stairs at the event held to recognize the contributions of Edmontonians to arts and culture, community service, and sports. Peter Toth, Kinley Gibson and Evan Burtnik were recognized for their performances in Individual Cycling. Each has seen both national and international success. It was great to see them up on the stage and recognized among fellow elite athletes. Here are Peter, Kinley and Evan with City of Edmonton Mayor Don Iveson and Juventus Cycling Club President Gail Wozny.
After presentations, both award winners and guests were treated to a delicious array of appetizers and the very popular candy dessert bar. Now this is a fantastic thing - all sorts of darling little cupcakes, jelly beans, gumballs, licorice, peppermints and more. You use a cute little brown bag to select all your favourites! Here is a picture of our 3 Juventus winners before they got into the candy.
