Bushfire fundraiser, Quiz night
6 October 2016
Last November we were witness to the horrific events surrounding the Pinery bushfire.
The tragedy has touched many families and businesses in our network. Our staff were also impacted, and subsequently wanted to make a meaningful contribution to the recovery effort. After disucussing various options, the group committed to lending support to the CFS Foundation, which provides financial assistance to CFS members and their families should they come to harm whilst on duty.
Consequently a quiz night/wine night with a difference was organised, with 100% of funds raised going to the Foundation. We sought support, through prize/cash donation, attendance and/or sponsorship for the night. The event itself proved to be a lot of fun thanks to our DJ and Quiz Master Tony Clarke, and also featured a presentation from CFS captain Jason Sabeeney, who was ground control officer on the day at Mallala. In total we raised over $13,500, thanks largely to the generous support of our Gold Sponsors: Peter Kittle Toyota, APAL and the Spray Shop. We received great support from many other businesses, as well as the great body of people who participated in the night.
