What an amazing night was had at this year’s Superheroes Quiz Night. It is our biggest annual fundraising event and the increasing support for the event is amazing. This year tickets sold out within hours and we had a registered waitlist of 110 people. Mind blowing! Big thanks to our GOLD Sponsor Ausolar, Silver Sponsors Ray White Karratha and Pilbara Ports Authority and Bronze Sponsors North West Tree Services and Karratha Adventure Sports. Thanks also to the many other businesses who donated items or provided In Kind Support and to all who attended on the night. The amazing support from you all led to the end result of an amazing $41000 raised to support locals with cancer!
That is a massive 104 businesses that either donated items or sponsored our event this year! Truly truly amazing and we thank each and every one of you for the support. If I missed anyone I sincerely apologize and please let me know so I can do a call out to you on FB and add it here!
Those who attended enjoyed some fun and games between Quiz rounds. The paper planes contest returned again despite our plans to scrap it! Too many attendees commented in the lead up that they couldn’t wait to participate in it again so it had to stay! The Sit Down if game returned for another year and we again had some TMI info disclosed in the process to the amusement of many. This year saw the introduction of “who has a chicken under their chair?” This was followed by some hilarious chicken dancing and the discovery that some people really love winning a Chicken Treat Chicken and doing the dance!
Every year the thought and preparation that goes into people’s costumes impresses our team and this year was no exception. The F@#k Cancer caped ladies won the crowd’s hearts and votes in the best dressed group category. Nacho Libre aka Dylan took out the best dressed male and Harley Quinn aka Naomi won best dressed female.
This year’s Quiz Night Champion team consisted of Lee, Erin, Jackson, Shenay, Jacob, Paul, Chrystal, Dylan And Cassie who very kindly donated their $500 winnings back to Reach Us. Thank you!
Special thanks to our volunteers who helped us run the event. The wonderful ladies behind the bar Trish Howlett, Donna Thomas, Carly Mott and Kate Mears, the assistant scorers Gary Traine and Jo McNeilly, Jo Green who has now joined our board, the lovely teens Lalita, Leah, Kyla and Lily who helped with set up, Bruce Towie who was an absolute legend running a million errands for us, Luke Rasmussen our number one drink tickets seller, Sylvester Felix and our other board member husband helpers. To anyone else who also helped us in any way big or small- thankyou! You are all very appreciated.
This year the Reach Us Committee were overwhelmed by the level of support received from the community. We know that the services we provide to locals with cancer are vital and much needed in the Pilbara but knowing how much our cause is supported by the community is heart warming. Thankyou! Next year we hope to secure a bigger venue so all can attend- get your costumes organised and we will see you in 2022!
