The Cannabis Classic presented by Pakalolo Supply Co., Alaska’s largest and most influential cannabis festival, announced today that Cheeky Monkey will sponsor the Cannabis Classic’s Industry Award Show.
The award show, which recognizes excellence in Alaska’s cannabis industry, will take place at 420 W. 3rd Ave. on Saturday, May 20, 2017. The event begins at 7pm with an industry mixer featuring food and drink, followed by entertainment at 8pm, and the award show, which begins around 9pm.
“When we created this award show three years ago, we set out to celebrate the cannabis industry’s best products,” said Kendra Wray, event organizer. “The core of the cannabis industry is these breeders, growers, and entrepreneurs. This night recognizes all three.”
This year, the Cannabis Classic Award Show will feature new awards for Cannabis Store of the Year, Best Budtender, Best Garden Supply Store, Best Headshop, Best Testing Lab, Best Cannabis Reporter, Best Packaging and Design, and Best Retail Product.
The 2017 Cannabis Classic award show is Island-themed, and will include food and drinks catered by Hula Hands. The menu includes teriyaki chicken, Kalua Pig, rice, and macaroni salad. Entertainment will be provided by Pacific Bloom in the form of hula and fire knife dancers.
“The Cannabis Classic Awards is a great way to recognize those in the industry who have demonstrated leadership and excellence,” said Andrew Campbell, Chief Product Officer for Cheeky Monkey. “We strongly believe in celebrating and supporting the cannabis community in Alaska.”
