Golden Key Awards-It's a Wrap!

by Carina Pfieffer, Chair of Special Events Committee, AAGO and Market Director at 407apartments 

Julie Smith, Vice Chair of Special Events Committee, AAGO and Property Manager at Highlands Viera West

On behalf of the Special Events Committee and the entire AAGO team, thank you for making our 11th annual Golden Key Awards a huge success! It’s something we look forward to every year, and it was so great seeing everyone dressed to the nines and enjoying a special night out.

You may have noticed that we made several program enhancements to maximize the attendee experience. Some of our favorite enhancements included a DJ, brand new trophies, new backdrops and ambiance, upgraded sound, and improved cocktail hour sound/lighting! 

We invite you to visit www.GKAPhotos.com to view and download photos from both the photobooth and inside the ballroom.

A huge Congrats to all of our 2018 Golden Key Nominees! We had 311 nominees this year and the judges remarked how tough choosing just one winner was. We gave out a total of 53 trophies to 2018 Golden Key Award Winners.
