The reception and ceremony will be held at McCaw Hall on Wednesday February 21, beginning at 5 pm, and will be hosted by Deaunte Damper and Besa Gordon from Converge Media. Guests will have a chance to mingle, enjoy entertainment and hors d'oeuvres before the awards are presented shortly after 6pm.
