Glen Avery Trivia Night 2016
History was made on 12 October with the largest number of trivia players yet for the eighth annual Glen Avery Trivia Night. Almost 140 UON staff and their family and friends put their brains into gear for an epic battle of wits for this year's event.
21 teams from across the University, including ELFS, Finance, HR, IT, IT Projects, Library, SPP, Student Central and Wollotuka, had a lot of fun and wholeheartedly embraced the ‘Hollywood’ theme.
The annual event is for a great cause – raising funds to support the Glen Avery Memorial Scholarship. A popular and well-respected staff member, Glen passed away in 2008. The scholarship, which supports academically capable and dedicated undergraduate students facing hardship, honours his memory.
The 2016 event raised an amazing $4,264 for the Glen Avery Memorial Shaping Futures Scholarship Fund.
So far more than $150,000 has been raised largely by UON staff to support this scholarship fund since its inception in 2008
The winner of the 2016 trivia was the Library’s 'Margo Channing Fanclub’ team. The ‘best dressed’ winners were Rowena Reading, Will Wallace and Cheryl Burgess, and Student Life’s Kartrashians team.
Congratulations and thank you to everyone who took part.
