St Mary’s Rock and Roll Trivia Night at the weekend was definitely musical but it was anything but a trivial pursuit.

The annual event is organised by senior students at St Mary’s Catholic College in Kingaroy to raise funds for the Year 12 Valedictory Dinner.

Although the evening had a rock’n’roll theme – and most guests dressed accordingly – the questions were mostly general trivia.

However, local band Skin n’ Bone, who provided live entertainment during the evening, had participants guessing with a “Rock That Riff” competition.

St Mary’s P&F president Damien Martoo, from The Martoo Review, compered the evening.

Dinner was free pizzas, donated by Domino’s Kingaroy.

Damien said the winning team on the evening was “The Beatles”, who won an all-expenses party hosted by the Martoo Review at Kingaroy’s Commercial Hotel with live music by Skin n’ Bone. The evening will also be sponsored by S & G Hair Design.

To help raise even more funds on the night, there was a multi-draw raffle, with prizes donated by local businesses, and a major raffle.

First Prize in the major raffle was a night’s accommodation for a family at Seaworld Nara Resort and a family pass to the Gold Coast theme parks, donated by Purser’s Coaches.

Second prize was a fishing charter with South Burnett fishing guru – and columnist – Matthew Langford, plus an Esky donated by Mitre 10, and a bottle of rum courtesy of the Commercial Hotel.

Third prize was a dinner for up to six people cooked by local independent Thermomix consultant Gayle Lamping.
