Quiz and Raffle Night
On Wednesday 9 December, New Leaf Book Café in Siem Reap hosted our quiz night, in support of our annual campaign. Teams were faced with 6 rounds of brain-teasers, with questions covering a whole host of topics from sport, music and film, ending with a special Cambodia round. Each team was made up of up to five members and all the teams hoped to have an expert in each category on their side to help them win the coveted prize: a $35 voucher for New Leaf Book Café. With the prospect of delicious food and drink on the horizon, the competition was fierce and the teams were all very careful not to let anyone else eavesdrop when discussing their answers.
The teams could give their brains a short break halfway through proceedings whilst PEPY Empowering Youth’s Executive Director, Rith Sarakk, told participants about the organization and the programs which the funds raised during the quiz would go to support. This includes the Scholarship Program, Learning Center and Dream Classes.
Following the final two rounds of the quiz, it was time to draw the winning raffle tickets. There were some great prizes up for grabs, including restaurant and spa vouchers, ceramic cups and some free pottery classes. The lucky prize winners certainly looked happy with the results! Finally, it was time to announce the winners of the quiz, and the voucher for New Leaf Book Café: winning by a single point, our friends from Ayana Journeys took home the quiz crown. Congratulations!
The night was a great success, raising $231 for our annual campaign. We would like to thank everyone who participated, bought raffle tickets or donated prizes for the raffle. And thank you of course to New Leaf Book Café for hosting us. It was a fantastic evening!
