In anticipation of the third annual Best of West Hartford awards show on Sept. 27, the event committee has released the top three finalists in all 49 categories for 2017. Thirty-six of the winners will be announced live from the stage, and the rest will be unveiled at the Wednesday event.

The names of the winners will be delivered to the theater via locked briefcase by the local accounting firm of Filomeno and Company. Thank you to President Tom J. Filomeno, CPA, and Office Services Supervisor Kat Schwartz for their assistance.

Complete with red carpet, champagne, entertainment, amazing raffle prizes, and a generous array of heavy hors d’oeuvres for guests by Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar, the event will provide plenty of opportunity for socializing and networking – as well as eating, drinking, and celebrating West Hartford’s favorite businesses as decided by voters from the community. More event details are at this link. 

The evening will kick off at 5:30 p.m., eating is limited and tickets are available online on We-Ha.com. Individual tickets are $48 each, and tickets purchased in groups of four are available for $35 each.

Congratulations for making it this far! Without further ado, the finalists are:
