January 25th, 2020 . 5:00pm-9:00pm . Crown Uptown Theatre
The Star of Excellence Awards is a biennial event which shines a spotlight on the best in the Wichita area multi-family industry in 20 different categories. At this year's event we will be stepping back in time to the Roaring 1920's where the era was marked with jazz, speakeasy's, flappers and fun. Feel free to dress in the spirit of the theme or dazzle in your semi-formal attire. And what better place to celebrate than the historic Crown Uptown Theatre which opened its doors in 1928!

We want guests to not only make a grand entrance, but also arrive and depart safely. Additional parking for the event will be available at both the nearby Westlake Ace Hardware & Journey the Way parking lots. From there guests may walk or wait for transportation that will be running throughout the evening between the three locations. After the event, guests who may have over-violated the laws of prohibition are encouraged to use the AAGW Uber code to get themselves back home safely. Code will be posted near the bar area at the event.
Once you arrive, please check in at the registration table, check your coats, then head to the bar and join our cocktail reception which will begin at 5:00pm. This will be a cash bar and credit cards will be accepted. The bar will remain open throughout the evening, but security will be on hand to keep the area quiet during the awards ceremony, please be respectful to those in the front of the room.
Once you have enjoyed your drink, please find your seats. The meal for the evening will be served promptly at 6:00pm. We want everyone to relax and have fun, but we can't ask our caterer to guess when each table will be fully seated, if you do not arrive to your table on time your meal may not be hot.
Who will take home this year's hardware? During the program we will be honoring 160 nominees in 20 different categories with those who shined the most during the judging process named this year's best! Also during the evening we will honor the event's top sponsors, and see who takes home the Above & Beyond and Lifetime Achievement Awards.
