Trivia night funds help Proser­pine Nurs­ing Home

Whitsunday Times - - COMMUNITY NEWS -

RES­I­DENTS of the Proser­pine Nurs­ing Home will ben­e­fit from a $3,280.87 do­na­tion made by the Ro­tary Club of Proser­pine at a trivia night last Fri­day.

Past pres­i­dent of the Ro­tary Club of Proser­pine Nathan Blain pre­sented the cheque to gen­eral man­ager Tom Saide who said the home would use the do­na­tion to buy a new clothes la­belling ma­chine for their res­i­dents.

More than 50 peo­ple at­tended the trivia night which raised about $550 to add to their do­na­tion.

The Brain's Trust took out the ma­jor prize in what was a hotly con­tested event.

“We want to thank Proser­pine Ro­tary for their gen­eros­ity and their sup­port of the home over many years,” Mr Saide said.

“Ro­tary not only sup­ports the home in this vis­i­ble way but in the un­seen ges­tures of kind­ness and sup­port to many res­i­dents and staff."

The Ro­tary Club has held four trivia nights at the nurs­ing home over the last 12 months and thanked Steph Gor­don and Dy­lan Ev­ery at Coles Cannonvale and Von Black and Samm Koso­vich at Bun­nings for do­nat­ing prizes.

They also thanked Fay- lene Cooke for or­gan­is­ing the trivia nights at the nurs­ing home and Dale An­der­son for do­na­tions of prizes. The next trivia night is go­ing to be held on Fri­day, Novem­ber 29 at 7.30pm. To book a ta­ble call Christopher Harvey on 0429 451 517 or Fay­lene Cooke 0418 762 177.
