Cordelta Trivia Night Raises nearly $6,000 for OzHarvest

Cordelta’s annual Charity Trivia Night was held on Saturday 27 August and was a rousing success. We raised nearly $6000 for our nominated charity – the Canberra branch of OzHarvest. Attendees were also very generous on the night, participating in a number of raffles and games. The fancy dress competition was quite popular, with a table of Storm Troopers and characters from Star Wars, some very stylish 1920’s flappers and dapper gents, a table of farmers (including some actual farmers!) in gingham, rock stars, bath time beauties, and one suspect table that claimed to be wearing blue undies (no one volunteered to check).
