Booming businesses and enterprising entrepreneurs were lavished with praise and glory at Leeton Business Chamber awards on Saturday.
It was the first Leeton Business Chamber awards in several years, but it drew a massive crowd of over 240 people who turned up in their finest clothes for a Great Gatsby themed gala.
The awards flowed freely that night with the addition of several new local categories including Leeton's Top Tradie award, which went to Tim Killen.
The Crate Cafe were raking in the awards, taking out the Outstanding Customer Service Award, People's Choice Award, and the coveted Top Business of the Year Gold Walter Statue.
Crate Cafe owner Michelle White burst into tears on the night, saying it was the best thing that had ever happened to her.
Her daughter Madison White, who works full-time at Crate Cafe, said the awards were a team effort by the White family.
"Mum works super hard," Madison said.
It's a fairly young cafe at only about 2 years of age, but thanks to the hardworking efforts of the White family they've managed to earn a solid spot on Leeton's cityscape.
She said her brother Dane White had also done a "bloody brilliant" job, which made him an obvious choice for the Outstanding Customer Service Award.
"Dane is the most caring person ever and will do anything to help others," she said.
It was an emotional night for many families; the Lanham family's long legacy was recognised when they got a standing ovation for taking out the Irrigator Honour Roll Award.
Rachal Broadbent from Glenn Preston Real Estate took out the Outstanding Women in Business Award.
Jane O'Geary's up and coming Rise & Shine Fitness netted her two awards, the Startup Superstar award and the Outstanding Young Entrepreneur award.
Leeton Business Chamber president Wayne Bond said it had been a night to remember.
"It was just phenomenal," Mr Bond said.
"We couldn't have asked for anything better."
There were 10 local awards and 10 NSW Business Chamber aligned awards.
