Quiz fundraiser a big success
The annual quiz on May 21, organised by the local Westpac branch to raise funds for the Westpac rescue helicopter, raised $8945.50.
Traditional quiz master Kerry McKinley organised most of the questions, with Matamata Club’s Christine Imlach organising the rest of questions after McKinley passed away.
New real estate agent Michael Smith stepped into the quiz master role.
Team Late Decision bet 24 other teams to win the quiz and were presented a plaque in honour of McKinley by McKinley’s wife Lynley.
Money was also raised through an auction.
