ter this prestigious Awards program and be recognised as a leading Bayside business.

Recognition:
Showcasing the diversity of business throughout Bayside, the Awards provide a platform to recognise business
excellence and the opportunity of building brand awareness and increasing business reputation and profile.
Network:
A Gala Awards evening celebrating participants and announcing category winners will offer an excellent oppor-
tunity to grow networks with business leaders across Bayside. This prestigious event will be held on the

Fellowship @ True South / Sazio

Two events in one night! Beer, parmas, pizza! That’s


what the publicity should have said.
When we turned up at True South we found we had
really joined the glamour set as we had our own re-
served space at the front of the bar, in an open area,
able to look at the street and call out to passersby. A
bonus was that it was happy hour till 6 pm, so our craft
beer was a very reasonable cost. We walked down to
Sazio’s where the staff looked after us very well, we
had a great value menu and really good food.
David Hone was able to try out his Presidential training
wheels ; importantly he was able to be heard. In all
Forty one people enjoyed food and fellowship.
