For the past number of years – thanks to our wonderful corporate partners at WestJet – the Flamborough Chamber of Commerce (FCC) has been able to present two complimentary WestJet tickets for any destination in Canada or the USA at its annualOutstanding Business Achievement (OBA) awards gala.

This year, at the beginning of the evening, every table used a draw system to determine a finalist. At the end of the evening, the winner was selected using a ‘reverse’ draw (last ticket pulled is the winner).

Which brings us to Dylan McDonnell of the Pita Pit at Clappison’s Corners. Dylan was awarded the Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award at this year’s OBA gala. When it came time to pick the WestJet winner, the last person standing was Dylan’s grandmother Marie McDonnell. Marie will use the tickets to fly to Vancouver where she will stay at the River Rock Casino Resort courtesy of the Great Canadian Gaming Company – the owners of Flamboro Downs.

Marie is pictured below at the OBA gala held at the African Lion Safari with her husband George (left), Dylan (right) and Dylan’s Pita Pit business partner Mike Valchuk (second from left).


The FCC extends its sincerest appreciation to both WestJet and the Great Canadian Gaming Company for their generous support.
