Wine and cheese movie night to raise funds for Quota In­ter­na­tional

Whitsunday Times - - CHILL. -

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.
