As the night progressed, MKT filled with the city’s movers and shakers, 350 in total. They were all there to see the Nov. 1 unveiling of our Top 40 Under 40. We recognized 40 outstanding individuals under the age of 40 for their contributions to the community.

Hosted by Global’s Vassy Kapelos, the event was catered in-house, featuring several food stations such as an oyster bar, with wine provided by Sandhill and beer from Big Rock.

“Top 40 is really about celebrating our city and individuals who do amazing things within the community. We want to recognize these achievements,” said Orville Chubb, Avenue Edmonton’s publisher.
