Quiz night hoped to raise $5000 for Project Numbat
Project Numbat is only $5000 away from fully funding a giant fibreglass numbat which will be installed in the redeveloped Lions Park in Williams.
The project needs $46,000 to fully fund the construction of the numbat and with a $20,000 share of the recently announced $360,000 Building Better Regions funding going straight to the numbat, the remaining $5000 will hopefully be raised at an upcoming quiz night.
Project Numbat is holding a quiz night in October to fundraise for the remaining $5000, and local businesses including Downderry Wines, Belvedere Nursery and Rustic Rainbow Cafe have assisted with prizes and silent auction items.
The main prize on offer at the quiz night is up to two nights’ accommodation at Possum House in Dunsborough for up to eight people.
The quiz night will be held at the Williams Bowling Club on Saturday, October 7 from 6pm-9pm. Tickets are $90 a team of six and tickets can be purchased online at numbat.org.au.
There are plans to build a numbat statue in Williams to honour the population at nearby Dryandra Woodland.
