Cordelta celebrated its most successful charity event to date, with the Trivia Night held on Saturday 29 August at the Majura Community Hall in Dickson. As a result Beryl Women Inc will receive $6,185. Beryl provides therapeutic support and safe housing to women and children escaping domestic/family violence.
With 15 tables full of enthusiastic participants made up of Cordelta staff, friends, family and clients, there were three fast and furious rounds of trivia hosted by Larry of Fame Trivia. In between rounds, mini-games got people thinking, moving around, and in some cases holding on to their heads/bums.
The various raffles were full of fantastic prizes, including a delicious fresh fruit box, Red Balloon experience voucher, Wild Turkey packs, and the biggest hamper most of us had ever seen. Three lucky people went home with jars full of snakes, jelly beans and M&Ms after estimating the carefully counted totals in each. The dessert auction was a hit with more than a dozen scrumptious treats – enough to take home extra.
“It was so wonderful to see such a great and generous turnout for the Trivia Night,” said Rebecca Edwards, Cordelta Senior Executive and Charity Committee Chair. “We raised far more than we had hoped for Beryl Women, and it was obvious on the night that everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves.”
