Vietnam Fundraising Trivia Night
On Friday 13 May 2016, over 250 staff members, parents, friends and ex-students gathered to test their trivia knowledge and raise much-needed funds for the Ba Vi Centre in Vietnam. We raised a whopping $18,764 that means we are able to support the employment of three people.
This year's Trivia Night crowd was thoroughly entertained by the comical Tony Barber (aka Lynette Osborn) and the glamorous Delvene Delaney (aka Sue Lewis). Competition was tight with our very own point scoring hero ‘The Gavinator’ keeping a close eye on the final calculations. In the end, the Science department reigned supreme and took the honours of this wonderful annual event.
Year 11 students baked cakes and put together a high-quality silent auction that, along with generous donations, raised a record amount for the Centre, allowing our work at Ba Vi to continue in years to come. We are now able to employ a nurse which is highly needed to provide ongoing medical attention to residents who are seriously ill, an occupational therapist to teach residents how to feed themselves independently and learn how to walk, as well as continuing the employment of a physio assistant, Phum, who is doing an exceptional job in the rehab room. The extra money raised throughout the year will contribute to building a classroom for teenagers who are unable to access education in their local community.
The Year 11 Vietnam Committee would like to thank the PLC Sydney community for their support of the Ba Vi Centre in Vietnam and we look forward to next years’ event.
