St Patrick’s Day Quiz and Supper FAWCO Fundraiser

AWGLR hosted a FAWCO Fundraiser

 St Patrick’s Day Quiz and Supper

We had a lovely evening in March at a fundraiser for the FAWCO Target Project.  Despite not knowing which of the three projects we were raising funds for at the time, we really wanted to start our fundraising efforts. We were delighted at the announcement of Hope Beyond Displacement as the Target Project and have now donated the money raised at our quiz evening to this project.

The evening kicked off with drinks and canapés and then we set about doing a ‘trivia’ quiz, with eight rounds of ten questions on history and geography, science and technology, general knowledge, and in keeping with the theme- Ireland and famous Patricks! There were five teams :  the Shamrocks;  Danny Boy;  The Lovely Ladies;  The Fightin' Irish;  and the Singing Banshees.  Each person paid to enter the quiz and additionally paid for supper.

My husband acted as quizmaster and Mary Catherine- AWG President and Kim- Regional FAWCO rep were fantastic at keeping score. I busied myself serving food and drinks.

A truly fun evening was enjoyed by all, although I have since heard that people thought the questions were a bit trickier than they were expecting! But everyone was a winner; there were prizes for all the teams including Irish whiskey, Baileys, wine and Irish books.

The biggest winner however was the Target Project as we raised an amazing €425!
