Think Pink Quiz Night Sets a New Record
11 August 2014
We raised a record amount our Think Pink Quiz night held on Saturday!
Six years ago the Think Pink Quiz Night was a small function, raising little over $12,000. Over the years it has grown into a major fundraiser for The Cancer Support Group.
This year we raised $21,500 thanks to the 205 people that donated throughout the night. It was a fun filled evening hosted by the amazing team Chantal and John Fleming.
Congratulations to “In the Ghetto”, the winning team for the evening. It was a tough competition, but you took the title in the end!
Simon Gardiner, President of The Cancer Support Group said a heartfelt thank you to all those that contributed to make the evening possible.
“Thanks to our major sponsor Gallagher Wines, the businesses that donated prizes, everyone in the office, the volunteers who helped set up and the Queanbeyan Bowling Club for having us”, Mr Gardiner said.
Melissa Gardiner, CEO of The Cancer Support Group says we are very lucky to live in such a supportive community, we had 51 new patient registrations last month alone.
“Every dollar counts and we need to continue fundraising hard to provide for the massive influx of new patients we are now registering each month”, said Mrs Gardiner.
We hope everyone enjoyed the evening and keep an eye out for our upcoming event, The Queanbeyan River Festival.
