3rd May - Rotary Quiz Night

Terrific Results from Rotary Quiz Night!! ?


Rotary Club Estoi Palace International held its semi-annual quiz night on Friday, 3rd May and reports a great result.  More than € 1.700 were raised for the club’s ongoing project to supplement the Food Bank’s monthly parcels for the underprivileged families of Estoi.  Thirteen teams, with a total of 84 quizzers, competed in a good-natured contest to answer a wide range of trivia questions.    

Quiz master Shirley Dunne kept everyone on their toes with an auction of vouchers for rounds of golf, a popular raffle draw that offered prizes for meals, haircuts and wine and a unique variation on Bingo that provided a cash prize (which was generously re-donated back to the project.)  Additional funds were received from sponsoring businesses and an anonymous donation.  The night’s results were further boosted by a contribution of € 269 (equal to the cost of one month of the project) received in response to the press release announcing the quiz night.  Subsequently, a corporate sponsor has come forward to fund another month’s milk.  The club wants to thank all of those who supported the quiz night . . . without you all, it wouldn’t be able to fund this important project.

The new venue of A Floresta in Almancil dished up a tasty two-course meal and kept the participants well-watered with good value drinks and excellent service.

Don’t worry if you missed the action; the club will be organizing another quiz night in the autumn.
