On Saturday November 14, we held our annual Keep the Flame Alive Quiz Night at Lathlain Function Centre at Perth Football Club. After a long year of COVID-19 restrictions working against us, we are so grateful this much-loved event was able to safely go ahead (after some rescheduling.)
The capacity restrictions of this year’s event did not stop the Quiz Night from being another roaring success, with an incredible total of $17,163 raised for the Foundation!
“It was such an incredible night, and nobody left empty handed.” Said Andrea Alexander, CLCRF CEO. “It’s lovely to see so many people continuing to support the Foundation during such a crazy year. We are so appreciative for the generosity of our supporters, which lead us to an amazing result.”
This year, the sold-out Quiz Night was MC’d by the very enthusiastic Sean Fry who kept the audience entertained all night long, receiving overwhelmingly positive reviews from our attendees.
“Sean gets brownie points for serenading us with a verse of Frozen’s Let it Go!” Said one attendee. “He was so much fun!”
Congratulations to Table 18, who won the Quiz after spending the majority of the night in the lead. There were so many smart minds in the room, including a table of researchers from Telethon Kids Institute, so you should all be very proud!
A huge thank you is in order for all of the wonderful businesses that made the night possible by donating goods towards our prizes and silent auction. We would not have been able to raise as much money as we did without your help!
There was a total of 75 silent auction items on the night, as well as a bunch of amazing raffle prizes. We have listed the businesses we would like to thank below, and we encourage you all to go and check them out!
We also need to thank our incredible volunteers, who went above and beyond to make sure our Quiz Night was as successful as possible. A special mention goes to Jonelle, Kristy and Michele who all worked tirelessly to source the best prizes and gifts for the night. Not only did they sometimes travel far and wide to pick up the items, but they spent their valuable time making them up into the beautiful hampers you saw on the night.
A huge thank you also goes to the Perth Football Club, who kindly donated Lathlain Function Centre to the Foundation for a fourth year. This is such a great venue and we could not imagine holding this event anywhere else!
Last but not least, we thank every single person who came to the Quiz Night on Saturday. It is because of YOU that we were able to raise as much as we did. We are thrilled so many people showed up to pit their wits against each other for a very important cause.
We are already looking forward to next year’s Quiz Night!
