Trivia Night a Scary Success

17 October 2017

On Friday October 13, Belconnen Community Service presented a Trivia Night with a spooky theme.  The Raiders Club in West Belconnen was overrun with scary-looking characters ready for some ghoulish fun.  The event raised $3,500 for the BCS 10/10 Gardening Project.

Adam, a BCS Program Manager and one of the event organisers said, “The idea was to create a fun night with general questions that were not too hard so that everyone could enjoy it.   The best part was the music round.  When the last song came on, everyone danced and sang along. ”

Aleks, BCS’s Administration Coordinator came dressed as a witch.  She said, “It was great to see all the ghosts, witches, warlocks, pirates and vampires all up there singing to The Rivers of Babylon.”

Masia, BCS’s NDIS Intake Coordinator came dressed as Morticia Adams.  She said, “I really enjoyed having some downtime with friends and time to unwind with colleagues.  A whole bunch of people were there.  It was really nice.”

The money raised will help BCS volunteers to clean up and make-over up to 10 gardens in Belconnen.  The 10/10 Gardening Project is an annual event that makes a real difference in the lives of people who have difficulty maintaining their outdoor areas.  The 2017 10/10 project will take place on October 20.

BCS would like to thank the following sponsors who contributed to making this fundraiser such a success.
