Do you know someone who is a club legend?
Player or volunteer, young or old, the people who freely give their time and energy to mentor, help and inspire those around them make local clubs great.
Now our unsung heroes and clubs can be recognised with up to $5000 in prize money each.
The Viva Energy Geelong Refinery has announced the Club Legend Award for the greatest role models at sporting clubs within the Greater Geelong region – and that means Ocean Grovers who are involved in any sport are eligible.
As well as recognition, the Club Legend Award winner will receive $5000. Runner-up will receive $2000 and up to 20 finalists will each receive $1000.
In addition, clubs of all winners will receive the same amounts.
There will also be a People’s Choice award of $2000. This will be a chance for the people of Geelong to have their say once the finalists are announced.
“We know from our employees who live in Ocean Grove and the Bellarine, that the region has a proud sporting history with many dedicated volunteers,” general manager refining Thys Heyns said.
“Given this, we except to receive fantastic applications from this region.”
All winners will be honoured at the Club Legend Awards Dinner hosted by Viva Energy at Simonds Stadium on 16 October.
“Viva Energy is excited to be launching the Geelong Refinery Club Legends Award,” Mr Heyns said.
“As active members of the community, we want to recognise role models in greater Geelong who selflessly volunteer their time and effort to keeping our sports clubs running. We are looking forward to showcasing and sharing the work of these unsung heroes.”
