YOU would never accuse the Commercial Hotel bar staff of being hard on the eye, but three lovely ladies from the local watering hole plan on getting UGLY-er than ever.

For the next two months, Chinchilla bartenders Shannyn Barlow, Alexandra Hooker and Breanna Reynolds will compete for the title of UGLY Bartender of the Year.

Ashley Hooker will represent the Club Hotel for the title.

The state-wide Leukaemia Foundation fundraiser asks bar staff to be "Understanding, Generous, Likeable, You (UGLY)" and raise as much money as they can for families living with leukaemias, lymphomas, myeloma and related blood disorders.

The Commercial Hotel ladies planned on fundraising as a team even though officially they are all in competition for the title.

Alexandra Hooker said the team was hoping to bag at least $5000 but would be aiming for $10,000.

"We have raised $500 in less than week, so we're off to a wonderful start," she said.

"There is a lack of fundraisers for hospitality staff to get involved in so this was a great chance for us to show our support. A supportive community can help us make a difference.

The UGLY Commercial Hotel girls plan on knocking three-time winner Karyn Williamson for Cooyar Hotel off top spot this year.

They are currently planning fundraising nights at the Commercial Hotel and encouraged locals to drop in and support them.

The 2014 UGLY Bartender of the Year who raises the most money will win a $3000 travel voucher and the venue supporting the winning bartender will stand to win a Hoshizaki ice machine to the value of $7500.

Winners will be announced on September 12.
