    2020 Impact Awards Featuring Comedian Brent Butt

    Following the incredible success of the re-imagined Impact Awards earlier this year, the St. Thomas & District Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announce that a headliner has been booked for the May 14th 2020 event.
    The evening itself has an impressive local focus as the community comes together to celebrate extraordinary local businesses and community success.  This local flavour makes it even more fitting that Brent Butt, one of Canada’s most iconic comedians, will take the stage and carry on this focus as he pokes fun at Canadiana and all things rural. 
    Born in a small Saskatchewan farm town, Brent Butt has spent the last several decades touring internationally and performing at major festivals, but became best known as the star and creator of Corner Gas, which TV Guide named the ‘funniest show on TV’.  Brent’s signature wit and ability to respectfully make fun of both small-town life and himself helped Corner Gas become an instant hit with unprecedented ratings and numerous accolades, including an International Emmy Award nomination.  Corner Gas went on to become Canada’s #1 comedy, airing for six seasons, and is currently seen in more than 60 countries.
    Hosted by the St. Thomas & District Chamber of Commerce and supported by numerous key sponsors, including the 2020 Title Sponsor, RBC, the 2020 Impact Awards will no doubt once again be the highlight of the year, not just for Chamber Members, but for all those who are able to attend. 
    Nominations for the Impact Awards will begin to be accepted in January and Finalists will be announced in March.  The Chamber looks forward to once again welcoming over 450 people to St. Anne’s Centre, where the ‘best of the best’ will be recognized and all will be entertained.  Tickets go on sale Thursday, November 14 at the Chamber office or online.
