Afford’s much anticipated annual Trivia Night was held last Friday, 31 August at “The Village” in Penrith and it was a resounding success!
The venue was packed to the roof, we were so pleased with the wonderful turnout! It was a sell-out event with round 100 attendees that included staff from different sites and Afford’s head office, as well as local business representatives, friends and family of staff members.
The Trivia Night is heralded as one of Afford’s most popular events that gathers everyone together to socialise and to take part in some friendly competition.
The night instantly started buzzing with energy as everyone arrived in groups with colleagues, friends and family. The event opened with Rhiannon O’Brien welcoming attendees. Throughout the evening, attendees could take part in a raffle and silent auctions, as well as testing their memories with the range of curly trivia questions. Along with the games and raffles, all were treated to a delicious two course meal.
It was a great opportunity for Afford staff and their families to mingle, share dinner, play trivia and have a few laughs together. Many amazing prizes were won on the night with Friends of Megan’s Table winning first prize which was a collection of assorted wines and a $100 gift voucher.
The Trivia Night is a fundraising event for Afford and all funds raised go directly back to supporting people living with disability. This year, the event raised $12,667 including in-kind donations which will go towards continuing to make our Afford programs amazing. We’d like to thank the local businesses that supported our event including Creepy Crawly Pest Control, Mooney Real Estate, Kookaburra Plumbing and JT Plumbing. Your help and support goes a long way to making Afford’s programs a success.2
Thank you to all who took part in this year’s Trivia Night and those who helped to organise the event. It is a great way to get the Afford community together, while raising funds to support our clients and their needs.
