KidsOut Glasgow Question of Sport 2019 Raises over £70,000!
KidsOut’s 2019 Glasgow Question of Sport Gala Dinner was a great success, raising over £70,000 for the charity’s work with disadvantaged children in Scotland. That’s an astonishing £10,000 more than the previous Glasgow event! Over 320 people from Glasgow-based companies joined KidsOut at Glasgow Old Fruit Market for a night of fun and fundraising on Wednesday 6th November.
KidsOut were thrilled to welcome football pundit Peter Martin as both quiz master and evening host. Congratulations to Brodies LLP, well-deserved victors of the interactive sports quiz!
In addition to the main quiz, guests could take part in a raffle and two auctions. There were some fantastic items up for grabs in the silent auction and main auctions, including a luxury trip for two to Copenhagen, a Private Box at Cheltenham, and tickets for a European away game for Celtic FC. The KidsOut team are sure the winners of the charity raffle and auctions will enjoy their fabulous prizes.
Each year KidsOut offer awards to four people or companies for their outstanding support and contributions to the charity. This year’s awards were presented to Mairi McInally-Kier and Tennent Caledonian for ‘Volunteer of the Year’ and ‘Glasgow Company of the Year’ respectively, in recognition of their tireless commitment to KidsOut’s work and mission. Congratulations to both recipients!
KidsOut would like to say a huge thank you to the Gala’s event committee, as the Question of Sport event would not have been possible without their help and support. In particular, thank you to Pamela Hodgson. The money raised at this event will be used as vital funds to continue to supply Fun Days and Toy Boxes to disadvantaged children in the Glasgow and Scotland region, helping KidsOut bring fun and happiness to disadvantaged children throughout the UK.
The date of the next KidsOut Glasgow gala dinner is soon to be announced. Be sure to stay up-to-date with the charity’s social media channels for an official announcement soon!
