LIONS CLUB OF YEPPOON INC. TROPICAL PINEFEST
The Tropical Pinefest Ambassador Quest seeks community members that can demonstrate a strong commitment their local area and who have a genuine interest in the Yeppoon Lions Club and Capricorn Coast community and/or have an affiliation with their chosen charity, project or organisation.
Objectives of the Ambassador Quest
- To highlight the talent, creativity and ingenuity of young people, and in doing so, encourage entrants to be role models in the Capricorn Coast community
- To encourage and reward enthusiastic, skilful and industrious locals who are actively involved in the Capricorn Coast community
- To assist all entrants through their participation to develop strong leadership and communication qualities
- To enable entrants to gain greater proficiency in their chosen field and also develop entrants’ stature and reputation in that chosen field
The Tropical Pinefest 2018 Ambassador Quest is a personality and fundraising quest. Entrants will be judged on personality, appearance, general knowledge and commitment to our local community. Entrants will be required to attend various social functions before and during the Tropical Pinefest celebrations. Entrants must attend their interview, the judges dinner and the Tropical Pinefest weekend celebrations, but will not be penalised if work commitments prevent attendance at other official functions. Entrants are usually sponsored by local businesses or clubs to generate interest in the local community. Sponsors are required to support their entrant throughout the quest and sign the entry form accordingly. Fundraising for local charities and not-for-profit organisations (with discretion of the Tropical Pinefest Committee) is also a significant part of the Ambassador Quest. Entrants are able to raise funds by organising their own fundraising functions and/ or selling tickets in the Tropical Pinefest Art Union. Entrants are able to donate 50% of funds raised to a charity of their choice. All other funds will be distributed to Lions Club charities. The Yeppoon Lions Club beneficiaries are yet to be decided.
2018 marks the 51st year of Yeppoon Lions Tropical Pinefest and this year’s Ambassador Quest will be focusing on a journey of ‘growing in confidence’ for our individual entrants. Entrants will be provided with information and be encouraged to participate in events that create opportunities for networking, develop organisational skills and promote confidence when speaking.
