The Gold Star Program was started by Fort McMurray Tourism in 2004 to honor excellence in customer service within the tourism, hospitality, retail and service industry within Fort McMurray. The Gold Star Awards Program is meant to be a service to our members and community while also furthering the tourism, hospitality and service sectors within our region.
The Gold Star Awards Gala is held each year to publicly honor the outstanding service individuals of the previous year. This year, the Gala was held on March 15th at MacDonald Island Park with Special guest speaker and Flair Bartenders from the Ultimate Bartending School in Edmonton and Entertainment by Craig Moritz with Matty McKay. This year, Donna Fetzko of Mcmurray SnoDrifters was chosen to receive the prestigious Tourism Ambassador Award!
