Greater Ft. Myers Chamber of Commerce
9th Annual Apex Awards
“The Apex Awards is an annual tribute to a woman (or an individual) for professional excellence, community service and for actively assisting others in attaining professional goals and leadership skills. The event is a very highly promoted evening gala celebration. The Greater Fort Myers Chamber of Commerce is proud to hold this event to honor the women of Fort Myers and surrounding Lee County.
The 2014 Apex Awards will be held on Saturday, September 20, 2014 at Hyatt Regency Coconut Point Resort & Spa. Please join us as we celebrate this year’s recipients, Kathryn Kelly with The Heights Foundation, and Sonya Sawyer with Home-Tech.” – GFM Chamber of Commerce Website.
The NewPress and Florida Weekly also captured the evening reporting:
Two Lee County women who make a difference in the community were toasted Saturday at a dinner-and-dance gala for the Ninth Annual Apex Awards, presented by the Women in Business committee of the Greater Fort Myers Chamber of Commerce.
The winners are:
• Kathryn Kelly, president & CEO of the Heights Foundation, serving families in the Harlem Heights neighborhood.
• Sonya Sawyer, chief financial officer for Home-Tech, a regional appliance service and sales company based in Fort Myers.
The awards program salutes Lee women who excel in professional achievement, community service/philanthropy, mentoring and leadership.
While our coverage wasn’t front page headlines, it was nice to spice up the awards a bit with our custom gold and glittery background that we had prepared especially for the event. As one attendee commented, “It’s kind of like an adult prom” so why not glitz up the photos. Here are an array of snapshots from the event.
