TICK­ETS are sell­ing fast for Kumbia State School’s P&C Brain Drain fundraiser.

P&C pres­i­dent Kate Cur­tain said Brain Drain of 2018 was not to be missed and en­cour­aged par­tic­i­pants to get their Aussie gear to­gether for the night.

The event, themed Straya – 1993 to 2018, Cel­e­brat­ing 25 Years of the Kumbia Brain Drain, will be held in the Kumbia Memo­rial Town Hall on Satur­day, Au­gust 4.

“We’re pretty ex­cited. “We’ve al­ready had a tremen­dous re­sponse from spon­sors with a great com­mit­ment of goods and ser­vices to be raf­fled,” Mrs Cur­tain said.

For the first time, all the ta­ble book­ings were ex­clu­sively on­line via the Try­Book­ing web­site.

The shift to on­line tick­et­ing had been pop­u­lar, with a rapid up­take since the ta­bles were re­leased.

“We’ve im­proved the for­mat of the night in re­sponse to feed­back, and this year could well be our best Brain Drain yet,” Mrs Cur­tain said.

All pro­ceeds from the Kumbia Brain Drain will be used to fund projects and events for the stu­dents of Kumbia State School.

The pop­u­lar trivia night, at­tended by guests from all over the South Bur­nett, is the P&C as­so­ci­a­tion’s ma­jor fundraiser of the year.

The event would be BYO Esky and snacks, how­ever a light meal would be pro­vided and soft drinks would be avail­able at the bar.

Tea and cof­fee would also be pro­vided on the night.

A re­turn bus will run from Kin­garoy, courtesy of Peter and Julie Chap­man.

There are still a few cor­po­rate ta­bles and a num­ber of stan­dard ta­bles avail­able for the pop­u­lar event.

Ticket prices start at $120 per ta­ble, or $240 for a cor­po­rate ta­ble, and par­tic­i­pants must be aged 15 years and over.

Each team will con­sist of six play­ers and there will be many prizes to be won, in­clud­ing best dressed team, best team name, cash prizes each round, a lucky door prize and the over­all win­ners.
