Blue Magic Charters’ contingent of Ronnie Ashley, left, Stacy Caba, Alex Bell, Quinlyn Haddon, Sandra Prendiville and Steve Steenstra would soon take home a “Best Fishing Guide” win.

A last-minute venue change necessitated by weather couldn’t derail one of Marathon’s finest events as the Best of Marathon awards transformed the generously donated Million Air hangar. The 2022 event was our biggest yet, with nearly 300 local business leaders and dignitaries on hand to pay tribute to more standout individuals, organizations and businesses than ever before. As always, proceeds raised directly benefited the deserving Marathon Rotary Club as it continues its charitable work and support of Marathon’s students. Congratulations to all our winners and nominees on a phenomenal evening of well-earned praise and friendly competition.
