YOU couldn't wipe the smile off the faces of Robert Cappello and Roy Catanzariti on Friday night.

The two accepted the award for excellence in business ethics on behalf of Griffith Post School Options at the Murray-Riverina Regional Business Awards.

"This is one of the best moments in our history," Mr Catanzariti said.

Mr Cappello said Post School Options gave people with a disability opportunities to enter the workforce.

"It is a very, very satisfying job to bring a smile to the face of a person who has a disability," he said.

Mr Cappello said Post School Options was extremely grateful for the support it received from the community.

"This town is so, so supportive," he said.

Mr Catanzariti said Griffith Post School Options was established in 1993 to support young adults with a disability to make the transition from school to community life.

"Winning this award ensures the organisation is recognised and acknowledged for the great work we do to achieve positive outcomes for our service users," he said.
