Quiz masters raise big funds

21 June 2017

We’ve helped raise $7500 for the Southern Cross Care Community Foundation at our 2017 Annual Quiz Night on June 16, 2017.

175 people packed out the Eagles Function Centre in a night of fun for all ages.

The money raised will go towards supporting projects and programs having a direct and practical benefit for those who we provide care and represent and create communities of care to encourage and support people to look out for each other in whatever capacity they can.

Examples include the Community Foundation’s Bus Program, which keeps residents and customers mobile and connected to their community. It provides transport for social activities such as outings, events and shopping days.

Teams competed across five rounds on topics such as sport, movies and music.

There were 11 questions each round and teams were able to nominate one round of which they would receive double points.

Other fundraising activities on the night included the Wine Wall, Silent Auction and Reverse Table Auction.

First place went to ‘It’s Not easy being Green’ (Altaira Nursing Services), and each received bottle of Kalleske Cabernet Sauvignon.

Runners-up were ‘Lynch Meyer Solquizitors’ (Lynch Meyer Solicitors) who won a delicious Charlesworth Hamper.

And coming in third was ‘The Trivia Troupe’ (Lourdes Valley staff) who also received a Charlesworth Hamper.

The Southern Cross Care Community Foundation would like to thank our major sponsor for 2017 Annual Quiz Night, Advantage Salary Packaging along with our valued business partners who donated items for the Silent Auction, Wine Wall and Raffles.
