RAISING money for the charity of your choice, having a fun time while doing so and putting on great events all sounds like a pretty sweet deal.
Throw in the chance to win one of two travel prizes and that's the basic gist of the SunRice Festival Ambassador Quest.
The SunRice Festival Committee is now seeking residents to take part in the quest, which officially gets underway from December 1.
The whole idea of the competition is to raise funds for an entrant's chosen charity or group, as well as various other community organisations throughout the shire.
It is hoped there will be around five entrants taking part this time around, but it is a case of the more the merrier.
Lauren Brett won the Ambassador title during last year's SunRice Festival and it's a time she looks back on fondly.
"The best thing I learned was how good our community is ... everyone was so helpful, so generous and it really was a lot of fun," she said.
"You learn a lot more about your town and for yourself personally you get to put yourself out there, meet new people and build your own confidence."
The quest culminates with the announcement of the Ambassador winner and Highest Fundraising Ambassador on Easter Saturday.
"It's such a great cause ... we've got a few people interested, but no one locked in yet," festival director Julie Axtill said.
"It's a really wonderful thing to be part of for so many different reasons."
Fundraisers in the best have included everything from island nights and barefoot bowls to seafood luncheons, trivia nights, balls and music festivals at the race course.
