Viva Energy has selected 20 selfless sporting volunteers for the finals of its Club Legend Award, from almost 150 entries into the inaugural competition.
The list includes long-time members, inspirational juniors and volunteers who saved their clubs from the brink of disaster, who will each receive $1000 for themselves and their club.
Competition organiser Krystin Dudley was thrilled with the range of men and women who entered.
“We were so lucky to get such a huge diversity of sports, ages and contributions,” she said.
Viva Energy will host a Club Legend Awards Dinner to honour the finalists at Simonds Stadium on 16 October.
A panel of Geelong icons will choose the Club Legend but residents can pick their favourite in the People’s Choice award, with a $2000 prize for the winner and their club.
Voting for the People’s Choice is open until 6 October at www.clublegend.com.au with each of the 20 finalists listed on the website.
The Club Legend Award winner and their club will receive $5000, while the runner-up and their club will receive $2000 each.
“With total prize money exceeding $50,000 the refinery is once again demonstrating our ongoing commitment to our local community,” said Viva general manager Thys Heyns.
