Pink Team Trivia Night
Georgie Glover is the Captain of the Sydney Body Art Ride's Pink Riders. Last night she took things to a whole new level by organising a fabulous trivia night at the North Sydney Leagues Club to raise extra funds for the Children's Cancer Institute. The whole room was decorated in pink and guests wore cocktail dress "with a touch of Pink."
Sydney Body Art Ride has always worked by tapping into people's individual networks in order to raise funds and spread the word about our event. Georgie's event was a great illustration of just how effective this method can be. By getting her friends to use their personal networks of friends to fill tables for the trivia night she managed to bring together about a hundred people. Many of the people there had never heard of our event so the function raised awareness as well as thousands of dollars for the kids. Lots of people told me they were looking forward to taking part in the ride for the first time. We had heaps of fun too!
Even the poster had "a touch of Pink"
