Trivia night raises $1300 for anti-violence campaign
MORE than 90 people attended the Zonta Club of the Whitsundays trivia night at the Volunteer Marine Rescue clubhouse on Friday night.
The evening was a fantastic success with 12 teams battling it out to be the inaugural trivia champions.
Ann Cleghorn’s team of Jack Close, Mario Abdurachman, Amanda Voveris, Greg France, Annie Judd, Amy Close and Jo Zouwer took out first place to prove they were the trivia masterminds of the night.
More than $1300 was raised on the evening with all funds going to the Zonta Says No campaign and Breast Care.
Media liaison officer Sandii Hansen said Zonta was committed to raising awareness and making a presence in the Whitsunday community with the first step being the erection of an awareness stand at the trivia night.
She said Zonta members would continue building the local campaign by setting up a Zonta Says No tent at the Act as 1 Community Outrig- ger Challenge on Sunday. “Our campaign will build until November 23 when we will be having a stall at the Airlie Beach markets to create further awareness, give out Zonta Says No ribbons for a gold coin donation and sell all things orange,” she said.
“Together we can make a difference in the lives of women and girls in our local communities and around the world.”
The Zonta Club of the Whitsundays will be working simultaneously with 30,000 Zonta members from 1200 clubs in 63 countries to support the Zonta Says No campaign.
The new initiative by Zonta International aims to raise awareness and increase actions to end the violence against women and young girls around the world.
