If you’re in the Hawkesbury or Richmond areas in NSW on Saturday the 20th of August and you’re looking for a great night out, our friends at Giving For Life are hosting a trivia night at the Richmond Club to raise funds for Transplant Australia.

The ticketed event will feature celebrity MCs and fantastic prizes.

Giving For Life was created by husband and wife team Simon and Brooke, with a lot of help from Brooke’s sister. Brooke says, “In 2010, we decided to create a trivia night to raise money for the National Breast Care Foundation. We had six weeks to create a night full of fun and laughter for a great cause. We had 87 guests and raised $7500.

“We were so happy with the event we thought ‘how ’bout we make it an annual event?’ So in 2011 Giving For Life was born.”

The following years saw Giving For Life raise much-needed money and awareness for ten different charities, raising just over $43,500 in total.

Brooke explains that Transplant Australia wasn’t chosen for the upcoming trivia night by chance. “We also give our guests the right to pick the charity for the following year, so they have a say. Which everyone loves.

“We are every passionate about our event and want it to reflect on the night. We want our guests to go away and say ‘we need to do this again next year’.

“It’s a way of giving our community a chance to help support great charities without killing their hip pocket.”

Great prizes will be on offer
