A staple of our fundraising year
Last month we held our highly anticipated annual trivia nights in Melbourne and Sydney to raise vital funds for our charity partner, OzHarvest.
OzHarvest is the first perishable food rescue organisation in Australia that collects quality excess food from more than 2,000 commercial outlets and delivers it, direct and free of charge to more than 800 charities.
This year’s trivia events raised $2,747.00 for the charity, enough money to deliver nearly 5,500 meals to vulnerable men, women and children across Australia. Since our partnership began in 2015, we are proud to have helped OzHarvest deliver 33,324 meals to Australians in need.
“The competition at trivia can get quite intense, but the nights are designed to create a relaxed, fun-filled atmosphere for our clients, while raising vital funds for OzHarvest at the same time,” said Mark Pryor, Head of The SR Group in Australia.
The SR Group were teamed with more than 130 Marketing, HR and legal professionals from some of Australia’s top businesses to answer three rounds of 15 questions covering a wide range of topics including movies, sport, music, geography, TV, history, science and more!
The night also included fun games like the 50/50 question game and Heads & Tails. Teams were also joined by OzHarvest representatives, Karen, Christine and Megs.
“2.5 million people live in poverty right here in Australia. While four million tonnes worth of food gets sent to landfill. Perhaps more. So it’s always exciting to attend an event like The SR Group’s trivia night and see so many committed to working with us towards a world free of hunger and food waste, ” said Megs Hermann, National Corporate Engagement Manager at OzHarvest.
Congratulations to TAL Life Insurance who came first in Melbourne, and leading international law firm, Ashurst who took out the winning prize in Sydney.
A special thanks to ACMI, Allens, Ashurst, Casama Group, Clifford Chance, KFC, People + Culture Strategies, Swaab Attorneys and friends of The SR Group who donated some great prizes for us to raffle throughout the night.
