Once again the ticking brain cells were audible at the 2nd CSM Quiz Night Fundraiser which was held on 5th October 2007.
With the Indian Lounge music playing in the background, the 280 ‘contestants’ made their way to their brightly decorated tables which were each named after an Indian state (on which the contestants were given some information). Raffle tickets were drawn throughout the night, with the winners given the opportunity to choose their prize from an extensive table of goodies. The prizes continued with the ‘puzzle pages quiz’, ‘balloon’ prizes, ‘Heads and Tails’ and many other events. We are confident that the few who didn’t manage to carry away a prize did take away the memories of a great night and the knowledge that they had helped support the destitute in Kolkata.
The support of the community was overwhelming, not only from the supporters on the night but also the 30 businesses or groups who donated generously towards prizes. Thank you once again to Nine Mary’s Indian restaurant who donated the first prize of a $400 voucher which was greatly appreciated, as were all donations received for the night. We are also grateful for the outstanding effort by the team of volunteers who helped in the preparations prior to the event as well as chipping in on the night.
We would like to acknowledge the support and generosity of a number of people who made the night such a success:
Nine Mary’s Indian Restaurant; Laguna Veneto Italian Club; Stagecraft; Zafferano’s Restaurant; Chifley Bar 185 on the Terrace; Raimonds Boutique; Di Vinci Ristorante; Brown Hill Wines Margaret River; Mount Burgess Mining; Flying Fish Wines; Siennas Café Leederville; Giardini Restaurant; Allure Beauty Bar; Ottobrinos Butchers; Re Store Leederville; 9 Mary’s; Milli Cafe Restaurant; Tony’s Pasta House; Frangipanis Gifts & Homewares; The Designers for Hair; Citrus Hairdressing; Crema Cafe; Albert Scarparolo – Homebuyers Centre; St Joseph’s Parish.
The generous support resulted in a fantastic $6300 being raised.
