On Saturday 12 June, the Foundation held its annual Keep the Flame Alive Quiz Night at Lathlain Function Centre at Perth Football Club. This event was once again a sell-out, with every table full thanks to our wonderful supporters and quiz-enthusiasts.
What’s even better than a sold-out event? A record-breaking one! Our Quiz Night broke a fundraising record for the Foundation, raising a total of $20,659 for childhood cancer research in one night!
We are over the moon with his incredible result. Without the support of small businesses across Western Australia donating what they can to the cause, we would not be able to break our fundraising total year in and year out.
Congratulations to table 18 who took the win at this year’s Quiz Night. We had some very clever minds in the room on the night, including researchers from Telethon Kids Institute, so this is a great achievement.
The Quiz Night was once again MC’d by fan-favourite Sean Fry. He kept the audience entertained all night long and it was no wonder people asked us to invite him back this year!
A big thank you to our amazing volunteers who worked tirelessly to ensure the Quiz Night would be as successful as possible. We would especially like to acknowledge Michele, Jonelle, and Kristy, who ran around collecting the wonderful donations, made them up into beautiful hampers and made sure everything ran smoothly on the night.
We would also like to thank Kathy, Chris, Gary, Keeley and Kholee, who donated their time to help on the night. This event is undoubtedly a team effort, and we couldn’t be prouder for what we have achieved together this year. “It was such an outstanding effort by the whole team,” said CEO Andrea Alexander.
For a fifth year, we thank Perth Football Club who kindly donated the Lathlain Function Centre for the Quiz Night. With a spacious hall, a large bar, and a separate room for our silent auction, we could not imagine a better venue for this event.
Lastly, we must thank every single person who came to the Quiz Night on Saturday. “We are once again so appreciative for the amazing generosity of our supporters which lead to this amazing result,” expressed Andrea. “These funds will go a long way to help fund the vital research into childhood cancers.”
Here are the businesses who kindly helped us out this year:
