The Kingaroy Town Hall was packed on Saturday night with Olympians … or at least would-be Olympians.
Their sporting prowess may be in doubt, but not their gold medal-winning fundraising efforts – an impressive $5000 was raised for the South Burnett Autism Support Group at its annual Trivia Night.
More than 200 people, grouped into teams and dressed with an Olympic theme, attended the annual fundraiser.
The infamous Jamaican Bobsled team put in an appearance, as did some refugees from the former Soviet Union.
There was also an abundance of green and gold …
The money raised on the night will provide educational experiences for children and adults who have autism.
Major sponsors included Gumnut Place, Brumbies, Betta Electrical Murgon, Mrs Edna Dean and Mooloolabah Holiday Apartments.
SBASG long-time member and founder Jenny Lutz thanked the Trivia Night committee, South Burnett Autism Support Group members, South Burnett Young Leaders Association members and family and friends who volunteered their time to help co-ordinate and set-up/pack-up the evening.
