The 'Forty Leaders Under Forty' celebration took place at the Paradice Hotel. The event honors individuals under the age of 40 years old for their impact in the community.
Doctors, lawyers, teachers and community activists were amongst those in attendance. Recipient Brett Ellis said it was overwhelming to be considered with a such an amazing group.
"It feels like all the time and effort that you're helping out in the community, that you really have made an impact. And a lot of these people I really feel like its an honor and privilige to be a part," he said.
Ellis' wife was a recipient last year. This was the 19th induction class.
