Glen Avery Trivia Night 2015

More than 130 University of Newcastle (UON) staff put their brains into gear for an epic battle of wits for this year's Glen Avery Trivia Night.  

Staff donned golden garb in honour of the University's 50th anniversary. The gold theme was embraced wholeheartedly and the room looked fabulous with lots of gold sparkles and great creativity around the golden jubilee theme.

Nineteen teams from across the University participated, raising more than $3,200. 

The event is for a great cause – raising funds to support the Glen Avery Memorial Scholarship. A popular and well-respected staff member, Glen Avery passed away in 2008. The scholarship, which supports an undergraduate student, honours his memory.

So far more than $120,000 has been raised largely by staff to support the scholarship.

The winner of the 2015 event was the 'Black Gold' team, with 'Better Than Zero' and 'Gold Diggers' coming in second and third respectively.

Congratulations and thank you to everyone who took part.
