Perth, WA – Thursday night, 05/11, proved to be a winner all round for Perth based non-profit charity Cahoots, with their highly anticipated quiz night raising over $1k to support people living with disabilities and other exceptional challenges. The night was organised by Cahoots’ IT partner, Bremmar Consulting, and attracted 50 attendees to test their knowledge and wits in the leafy surrounds of the West Leederville sportsman’s club.
An NDIS provider, Cahoots has run a variety of inclusive services, including camps, day trips, sporting events, shopping delivery and training over the last 30 years. Events such as the quiz night are one of the premier ways through which Cahoots are able to continue to operate so successfully.
The initiative was part of another fundraising activity that Bremmar took part in – The Central Park Plunge. Paul and Brenton from Bremmar committed to raise a minimum of 2200 dollars for Cahoots by abseiling 50 floors, the equivalent of 220 meters, of the Central Park Building in St Georges Tce. All proceeds raised on the quiz night helped to reach the fundraising goal and, consequently, to sponsor 9 very deserving individuals to attend Cahoots camps and programs.
Cahoots Office Manager & EA, Ash Ginich was the quizmaster and couldn’t be happier with the night, saying “We’re so happy with the way the entire event turned out. Firstly, we were able to raise funds for Cahoots, it’s so important that we can keep bringing hope, training and support to kids and young people around WA facing exceptional challenges. Secondly, and as an added bonus, I think we were able to raise some smiles from the big kids that attended. A big thank you to Bremmar IT for spearheading the initiative”.
And the kids weren’t the only big winners, with the top teams and raffle draw winners taking home incredible prizes including google homes, movie passes, wine and wireless headphones donated to the cause by Perth SEO specialists Pathfinder Alliance and Bremmar IT.
It wasn’t simply a quiz either. The night also included a huge BBQ spread and a variety of games and activities – from raffles to paper plane throwing competitions. “It was a really great night and we felt really lucky to be a part of it and to help raise funds for such a worthy cause,” said. Bremmar’s Managing Director, Brenton Harris.
The quiz night’s success has also opened the door to further family friendly Cahoot events. “Given the overwhelmingly positive feedback from attendees and staff, as well as the incredible result, we’re sure that this will be the first of many events for us. We can’t wait!” stated Bremmar’s Marketing Manager, Gabriela Guerra.
Cahoots (formerly Kids’ Camps) is a non-for-profit charity that offers services that are tailored to young people who would otherwise be constrained by regular services. Our aim is to add value to families with disabilities and create shared experiences and challenges for volunteers and young people alike.
We run a variety of programs and camps over weekends and school holidays throughout the year, catered to children and young people aged between 5 and 25. We run programs for children who are able to walk unassisted, as well as High Support Camps for those who need one-to-one support or use a wheelchair.
