WESPYS Set for Monday Night

The 14th Annual WESPY Awards are all set for Monday night at the Caboto Club, with former Detroit Red Wing star, Nicklas Lidstrom as the keynote speaker.

There are 11 categories on both the men's and women's side, that include almost all sports in the region.

Major awards will also be handed out to Team of the Year, Coach of the Year, and the top male and female athletes.

WESPY founder, Dom Papa says it should be a fantastic night.

"It's a special night to be a part of and you get to meet a lot of great people there.  Our business support has been outstanding and you get a chance to do some networking and you get a chance to meet some of our great athletes, and you might even meet Nick Lidstrom so who knows."

Papa says with so many well known speakers in the past at the WESPYS, it makes it easier to attract big names.

"It's getting a little easier actually, so you know people like these kind of events and the sports personalities don't mind coming to these kind of events and we try and get very special people that have accomplished a lot in their careers.
