Mallala quiz night boosts funds for arts

A fundraising quiz night was held at Mallala Institute recently, where a big crowd was entertained while helping raise valuable funds for Mallala Community Arts (MCA).

Fun competitions were held during the night with Andy Barr winning the paper plane flying the greatest distance, Have you ever? game was won by Christine Young, Heads and Tails by Pina Bubner and best dressed in character as Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz was Allie Ruthenbeck from Redbanks.

A Beautiful Babes collection of cast members and their families had the crowd guessing and three tables correctly guessed 15 out of the 17 babies.

Winners are grinners and the winning team was Andy and Helen Barr, Sonia Angus, Andy and Julie Griffiths and Greg and Judy Tucker.

Highlights were watching the film clips from previous shows which brought back lots of memories.

MC Jim Franks was resplendent in black tie and kept the laughs going, accompanied by his beautiful assistant, wife Ros.

The night ran smoothly thanks to the clever adjudication by Jane Lutt and Di Stanley, and  questions were displayed ever so clearly by modern technology thanks to Nick Algar and madam president Yvette Jenkin.

The fundraising night was held to promote MCA and generate interest for the next exciting production planned to be rolled out on stage in 2022, so stay tuned for updates!
