It's great when good things just seem to fall in place. My wife and I started taking part in an online pub quiz hosted by Jon Keevy on Wednesday evenings. It's so much fun even though we are mediocre at best. During this weird time in all of our lives it's really given us something to look forward to with some of our friends.
More recently our CBD CAN was thinking through creative ways to get local businesses involved while driving donations to folks that are in desperate need. We hoped to get a few sponsors for prizes onboard and ended up with dozens. Truth be told we were only told no by two companies which shall not be named.
So here it is, a pub Quiz, going down this Monday evening. It's R150 per team with all proceeds going to our food parcel project in partnership with the Khayelitsha chapters of the Cape Town Together movement.
We’ve gathered some of your favourite Cape Town things as grand prizes and random raffle draws. Who knows, your repository of random knowledge may lead your team to win one of our prizes. We'll also be giving away random draw giveaways. Here's the current breakdown of giveaways and prizes.
- 1st Prize - A round of drinks from the Gin Bar. A case of wine from Reyneke Wines and R500 worth of vouchers to Station Bree.
- 2nd Prize - R300 to Kleinskys, R500 to El Burro Mercado, R250 to Station on Bree.
