It pains PeakCare to announce that the winner of our embarrassing Trivia with a Twist competition for 2017 was a motley crew of people from Kummara, Infinity and Mercy Community Services. The Queensland Family and Child Commission came second and the Queensland Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Child Protection Peak grabbed third spot. Yourtown excelled in demonstrating the most consistent performance by coming dead last yet again.
Even after retiring early from the competition, QCOSS’ Mark Henley still managed to stupefy all teams (which wasn’t all that difficult a things to do). We will never know whether or not Mark would have been able to stupefy himself if he had been there. Fortunately, there was a short period of dignified behaviour during the contest when Lindsay Wegener delivered a moving tribute to Detective Superintendent Cheryl Scanlon who, for the first time in the long history of this event was unable to attend due to a prior commitment concerning some other little competition being run by the government on the Gold Coast next year.
There were yet again, thanks to our many generous donors, vast numbers of people – mostly un-deserving – who left with some excellent raffle prizes! Dean Keep from Life Without Barriers waltzed away with the most prizes and you can see his beaming face – and the beaming faces of all the lucky prize winners and people who attended this mostly spectacular event – in the photo galleries published on our Facebook page. Double-happy winners were Chris from YourTown, Chelsea from Pracademics, Kim from Uniting Care, and Tom from Qld Police. Also winning big on the raffles were Lindsay Wegener and Michael Hogan – who both came away from the night with more prizes than pride! Well done to all the other winners and a huge thank you to all our generous donors: Australia Zoo, Blue Room Cinebar, Bombay Bliss, Chroma Hair Studio, Dendy Portside, Encompass Family and Community, Five Star Cinemas, Little Greek Taverna, Panda Pearls Australia, Paten Park Native Nursery, Queensland Gallery of Modern Art, Regal Twin Arthouse Cinema, Surf Connect, Taj Mahal Restaurant, Jenny Wegener, and Wheel of Brisbane.
