A look back at our Trivia Night in 2013

poster_croppedWell, most of you are probably aware that our next trivia night is coming up on 15 August 2014 – make sure you book your tickets early to ensure you get your table safely booked before we run out!

But in the meantime, here’s a look back at last year’s night, to get you in the mood for the competition this year…

On 16 August 2013 Burwood Rotaract held it’s third annual trivia night, this year in support of the Up! Club, part of Down Syndrome NSW.  We had an amazing time, with almost 15 tables of up to 10 people each, and once again a huge raft of prizes, auction items, and our cash prize of $500 for the winning table.

I am proud to announce that after a very competitive night we raised in excess of $2,900.00 for Down Syndrome NSW, and the guests on the night had a wonderful time from answering all sorts of questions, such as “Name the four teletubbies” through to “How many squares on a chess board!”

I am pleased to say that everyone really enjoyed the spirit of the night, and we were particularly pleased with how many “answer dots” were purchased by the ultra-competitive tables towards the end of the night.  However, the real winners on the night were the fantastic folk who run the Up! Club and Down Syndrome NSW, and we will shortly be presenting them with the funds raised.
