On Friday the 17th of Feb, The Pole Room hosted a Trivia night fundraiser to support fellow student Chloe Bright, who will be embarking on a bike ride across Thailand to raise money for a fabulous cause – Hands Across the Water.
About Chloe’s Fundraising Efforts
“In March 2017 I will be embarking on a massive journey of personal growth. I will be riding 500kms across Thailand to help raise money for a charity called Hands Across the Water. Hands Across The Water is a charity who puts 100% of donations into sustainable projects that shelter, feed & educate children across Thailand who have been abandoned or orphaned. Giving them opportunities that they would never even dream of. Although the ride will be extremely demanding & difficult, I am dedicated to helping make a difference. I am aiming to raise $5000 to put straight into projects for the kids.”
Doors opened at 7:30pm with trivia questions about history, movies, TV & more. Prizes were awarded across many games & silent auction items (including some of the fabulous teachers who put themselves up to be auctioned off)!! Also, it wouldn’t be a trivia night fundraiser at The Pole Room without some special half time performances from Pole Dance extraordinaire Shannyn Leonie and Lyra phenomenon Miranda Walker. The event was all about coming together as a family, having fun, and raising money for such a fantastic cause.
Thank you everyone who attended the TPR Trivia night! It was an absolute blast with an incredible outcome. The Pole Room Family raised over $2200 for Hands Across the water to put straight into projects to feed, shelter and educate kids in Thailand who have been abandoned or orphaned. What an incredible impact we’ve made towards Chloe Brights fundraising goal. Thank you also to all the businesses and people who donated products and services to the Trivia night. We were so overwhelmed by your generosity and it wouldn’t have come together as well as it did without everyones input.
“A special thank you to Jasmine and The Pole Room for hosting and all your support in bringing the night together. What an amazing sense of community we have at TPR. Never have I come across such a loving and supportive environment. If anyone still wishes to donate it’s not too late! Follow this link and click sponsor me” – Chloe Bright
