20yrs and a fundraising record for APP and Redkite

20yrs and a fundraising record for APP and Redkite

Posted: Thursday, 20 October, 2016 - 11:56

Friday 14 October represented the culmination of some serious effort by APP staff around the country, when the final event for the national Redkite Corporate Quiz took place in the grand ballroom of Sydney’s The Westin Hotel.  The Quiz attracted over 500 people, with long-time supporter and host Adam Spencer joining other celebrities to donate their time on the night to raise funds for families facing childhood and youth cancer.

This year was special for two reasons:  a record $1,166,500 was raised collectively across all 4 quiz events and the Sydney Quiz marked the 20 year anniversary for APP as the National Organising Sponsor.   

The Melbourne and Sydney Quiz events were particularly successful, thanks to the generosity of the attendees who smashed the targets by $35,000 in Melbourne and a whopping $100,000 in Sydney.

For our part, we would like to thank all the companies and businesses, including some of our clients, who have supported the Quiz along the 20-year journey by either taking a table or donating an auction prize.  We also say a big thank you to all the APPers who’ve assisted in the Quiz production or volunteered on the night in Brisbane, Perth, Melbourne, Sydney and Newcastle.
