Quiz night to get wild for a good cause

Sound Telegraph

Next month Mother Teresa Catholic College will be holding its Quiz Night to raise funds for school resources, hoping to repeat the success of last year’s event.

The theme this year is “Into the Wild – answers and actions”, with funds going towards developing music, sporting and multimedia resources for senior primary and junior secondary students.

The resources are “greatly needed” and will help contribute to a holistic learning space.

With over 300 attendees last year, the event raised funds for the school sustainable garden.

This garden is now producing vegetables, eggs from the chooks and compost for the plants.

The produce is then sold back to the school community to continue to contribute financially to maintaining the garden.

Caroline Sampson from the MTCC Parents and Friends Association said the quiz would be a chance for people in the community to let their hair down, while supporting a good cause.

“We have live auctions, raffles, games activities and of course the quiz,” she said.

“Last year we raised over $10,000 for the garden so we’re hoping to surpass that this year.

“The theme ‘Into the Wild’ can be anything, from the jungle to the wild west - if it’s wild and crazy then it’s all good.”

The major sponsor this year is Ray White Corby & Co, with office manager Amy Sullivan telling the Telegraph the business was excited to be contributing back to the community.

“Elsie, Doug and all the team are passionate about being involved in their community and love to get involved with activities like this,” she said.

“In fact, they are so committed to the Rockingham and Baldivis area that have opened a second office down at the Rockingham foreshore in order to better service their clients.”

Committee organisers are still looking for sponsorship and donations to contribute to the success of the night.

The Mother Teresa Catholic College Quiz Night is on Friday, November 3, kicking off at 6pm.

Tickets are $15 and can be purchased at https://www.trybooking.com/book/event?eid=307588.
