WEETWOOD: How to become the face of the race

APPLICATIONS are open in the search for the 2020 Face of Weetwood ambassador.

The prestigious title is awarded in the lead-up to the Audi Centre Toowoomba Weetwood and is highly sought-after.

Toowoomba Turf Club CEO Lizzy King is excited to see who nominates for this year's title.

"The Face Of Weetwood is something very dear to the club - it's a wonderful way to engage with the community, by giving someone the limelight to help spread the word about the event," Ms King said.

"Our previous Face winners have done wonderful jobs. They have represented the club and themselves beautifully."

The Face of Weetwood will represent Clifford Park at all 2020 Weetwood events, including; Weetwood Golf Day, Breakfast with the Weetwood Stars, the Barrier Draw, the Weetwood Calcutta Sportsman's Lunch and the race event itself on Saturday, September 26.

Last year's Face Of Weetwood looked a little different with a pair of ambassadors chosen- Abraham Slatter and Megan Buckley.

 

 

Mr Slatter described being the first male Face of Weetwood as a "privilege".

"I've always enjoyed attending Weetwood and to be involved with Clifford Park on a more official basis, as well as being part of the events in the lead up to Weetwood, was extremely exciting for me," Mr Slatter said.

"It's something I'll remember for a very long time.

"I'm thrilled this year's Weetwood is going ahead."

Ms Buckley said the opportunity to meet and work with local businesses was a highlight for her.

Interested applicants have until August 7 to nominate at www.weetwood.com.au
