Quiz night success

Dear Editor,
The Quiz and Big Raffle night in aid of AOA at Ca@sa Bar in Almancil recently was a huge success.
Nearly 500 raffle tickets were sold and 80 people played the quiz. €2,600 was raised altogether and collection tins are still to be counted by the AOA officials.
Adele Maroti, Hannah Van Aldworth and the Ca@sa Bar team were great hosts. They worked so hard decorating the room and serving the food and drinks on the night. It was a fantastic atmosphere and much fun was had.
Kate Findley, the quiz master, did a sterling job of writing the quiz questions and controlling the crowd. It was such fun to organise and thank you to everyone who participated and bought tickets.
We would like to say a special thank you to all the local businesses who gave so generously, there were some excellent vouchers and prizes. A big thank you to everyone who worked so hard, sold all those tickets and made it a night to remember.
Thanks to Esther Martin, the reason why we chose this charity, a good friend who is a breast cancer survivor herself. An inspirational person.
Esther Martin and Mark Relph and myself from A Quinta Restaurant will be running the Half Marathon in Lisbon this weekend and we hope that will raise more than €3,000.
We would like to reach a total of €6,000. Fingers crossed! If you would like to sponsor the run, please contact me at A Quinta Restaurant on 289 393 357 or www.aoa.pt for more info on fundraising.
