Wine and cheese movie night to raise funds for Quota International
GOOD food, good company and a good cause.
If this sounds like your idea of a fun night out, then it’s time to get your tickets to the Quota International wine and cheese night.
“It’s a nice, easy, relaxing night and we thought why not and it’s a good movie if the first one is anything to go by,” said Quota International of Whitsundays ways and means committee chair Tina West.
The film in question is The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel starring Richard Gere, Maggie Smith, Bill Nighy and Judi Dench to name a few.
The cause is just as good as the movie, with the local schools, nursing home, hospital and respite centre all benefiting from the community group’s projects.
“We also have a hand in projects in under-developed countries and we look at supporting women’s needs and all that sort of stuff as well,” Ms West said.
“So basically the funds will go to the Quota service projects that we have that we donate to every year.”
These projects take many forms with one local program for school kids, Chef de Quota, teaching them “all the basic cooking needs and how to shop and how to plan.”
The event will once again be hosted at the Proserpine Entertainment Centre.
Entry costs include two glasses of wine, entrance into the movie, cheese platters and tea and coffee slice.
