This trivia night is set to be red hot
IF YOU enjoy participating in quizzes and helping good causes, then Taabinga's 'Splash of Red' trivia night is the event for you.
Stephanie Tognola, Taabinga teacher and driving force of the evening, invites anyone over the age of 18 to dress up and attend the fun event, while also raising money for the school's P&C committee.
"We thought it would be a fun way to engage people from different age groups, inviting younger adults and older people to have some fun, but also to raise money for air conditioning in the school,” she said.
The event is next Saturday, October 20, and starts at 6pm.
Expecting over 300 attendees, Ms Tognola hopes the turn out will be a success allowing more trivia nights in the future.
"It's our first trivia night, and we're hoping that it'll be a good turnout so that we can do it one once a year to keep the maintenance up on the air conditioners and buy some more for the school,” she said.
Adopting the theme 'Splash of Red', the trivia night also allows people the opportunity to dress up.
"We chose that theme to go with our school colours, which are maroon, but we thought it would just be a fun colour for people to be able to dress up with, as it's an easy colour to dress up with and have some fun,” Ms Tognola said.
For only a $10 admission fee, attendees can expect a challenging range of professional trivia questions and many prizes.
"There's a wild range of genres, with six games with 10 questions in each round, and they are all different types of questions. The Kingaroy RSL has actually donated the questions for us.
"Other local businesses have also sponsored the evening and will be providing prizes accordingly, and there will be a lot of competitions and chances to win prizes on the night,” Ms Tognola said.
This is an 18+ event, but for parents in need, do not fear. The school's P&C committee is offering child minding services, where your kids can watch a movie while you're busy being quizzical.
