Our 2022 Trivia Night Fundraiser was held on the 19th November at the Townsville Senior Citizens Hall in Belgian Gardens. It was a fantastic evening of fun, corruption and plenty of laughter thanks to 11 enthusiastic teams and our incredible volunteers who keep the night running smoothly.
Thanks to our attendees, raffle ticket purchasers, volunteers and prize sponsors we raised Over $4900! Money raised will support our environmental advocacy work here in beautiful North Queensland.
Trivia champions Suppositories of Wisdom won a place on our Trivia Championship Plaque once again! Was it their superior Trivia skills that got them over the line or did they keep our bribe taker busy?
The Stranded Assets brought their usual enthusiasm and sparkle so we had to award them with a Mary Who? Bookshop gift pack.
And because we give a crap, we rewarded our lowest scoring team The Racing Hearts with a beautifully wrapped roll of Who Gives a Crap toilet paper haha! Thank you for the giggles Racing Hearts!
