Annual Trivia Night 25th August, 2017
Don’t you just love it when you can support something really cool and receive something great for yourself in the process?
That’s what’s awesome about our Annual Trivia Night. As a not-for-profit organisation we really appreciate your help with our fundraising efforts, but by coming along you also get a great night out. Use it as reason to catch up with friends, or a chance to free up some space in your brain. Either way, it’s a win-win!
We have some amazing prize sponsors again this year. All you have to do to be in the running to win some great prizes is just turn up, and you’ll already stand a chance to win. And while at least some interest in movies and/or movie knowledge may be desirable, you definitely don’t need to be a film nerd to enjoy yourself. Win or lose, we promise that you’ll have a great time.
Where and When?
The ANUFG Trivia Night will be held at the Hellenic Club of Canberra, Matilda Street, Woden ACT 2606.
