Carlton House of Oak Bay was proud to participate in honouring the nominees and winners of the 13th Annual Young Exceptional Star (YES) Awards on February 27, 2020.

We’d like to extend our congratulations all of this year’s award winners: Owen Barlow, Anna Friesen, Olivia Friesen, Jennifer Lambert, Amelia Leibel, Beatrice Sharpe, Mason Levin, Panos Tzanetakis, Alice Wu and Kyla Younger.
