Victoria victorious

Vic Wales, HOT Events, Christchurch was named the New Zealand Skalleague of the Year on Saturday night – the first recipient of what is set to become an annual award.

Wales, currently Christchurch Club president, was recognised for the work she does across the industry as well as Skal. She is active in public relations around the club, and organises events such as the popular annual Trivia nights. She has also been active in promoting Young Skal.

Entrants were nominated by their clubs and the awards were judged by Skal’s three past world presidents – Phil Sims, Nigel Pilkington and Peter Morrison.

Wales said she felt privileged to take the award back to Christchurch.

Skalleague of the year was presented at the Skal New Zealand 65th birthday gala dinner in the Grand Hall of Parliament. The night also celebrated people, stories and events that have helped shape the organisation in NZ.
