Quiz Fundraiser

The Quiz was a great success with a total of 18 teams competing. It was great to see members socializing away from squash and meeting other members and their partners.

The club raised $2000 on the night mainly due to the auction items.

I want to thank Ed Post, Jason Dellaca (Brandhouse) Tim Matthews (Cookie Time) and Scott Gardiner (British Food Imports) for donating silent auction items.

I also want to thank Iwi Athletica Clothing owner and club member Aaron Jackson who donated a Paul Coll replica shirt that was auctioned off on the night.
