Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - OPINION -

GATSBY at­tire and 1920s style will greet the an­nounce­ment of the win­ners of the 10th An­nual WA Club In­dus­try Awards, with the Belmont Sports & Recre­ation Club and Perth Foot­ball Club be­ing hot con­tenders for their cat­e­gory ti­tles.

More than 400 guests will join the 30 clubs and 70 in­di­vid­ual fi­nal­ists at WA’s an­nual club in­dus­try gala ball on June 11 at Crown Perth.

Belmont Sports & Recre­ation Club is a fi­nal­ist for both the Best Club TAB and the Best Club Mem­bers Event (Medium) award.

Wayne Ron­ald Giles from the Recre­ation Club is also in the run­ning for the Vol­un­teer Con­tri­bu­tion Award, which recog­nises and hon­ours a vol­un­teer who brought about pos­i­tive change to their club.

Perth Foot­ball Club will go up against other lo­cal com­mu­nity clubs to take home the Clubs in the Com­mu­nity – Com­mu­nity Part­ner­ships Award and the Clubs in the Com­mu­nity – Spe­cial projects Award.

The award ac­knowl­edges clubs that have long-term re­la­tion­ships with com­mu­nity or­gan­i­sa­tions by way of ei­ther a reg­u­lar event or on­go­ing pro­mo­tion.

Clubs WA chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer Karen Giles said clubs were the heart of the lo­cal com­mu­nity.

“In the 10 years since our first awards, we have seen many in­di­vid­ual sport­ing codes in­tro­duce their own pro­grams to cel­e­brate achieve­ments within spe­cific fields,” she said.

Tick­ets are $140 per per­son and avail­able through con­tact­ing events@club­swa.com.au.
