On Thursday June 6th 2019, Travellers Aid Australia (TAA) held their annual trivia night at The William Angliss Restaurant. The annual event raised thousands for the cause of helping differently-abled commuters get around, and gave attendees an evening of trivia and tapas beneath beautiful arrangements of umbrellas.
TAA partners like Yarra Trams were in attendance, with organisations like VicRoads returning to sponsor the evening. Once again, the incredible cooking and high service standard of the William Angliss Institute made the choice of venue easy for TAA.
The night took place a mere two weeks before the student organisers were due to finish their Diplomas in Event Management. Rather than slacking off, they savoured the opportunities: organising the dreamy decorations, gorgeous grazing tables, and spectacular sponsors all on their own.
As well as raising funds and having fun, the night allowed organisations in the transport sector to network with each other. After all, there is a long way to go before we can call our transport systems accessible. And after fundraising, cooperation is the core of the solution.
Despite a ten minute starting delay, students worked effortlessly around this setback. Attendees praised the variety of food, swiftness of service, and skill of Scott Kennedy as the talented emcee and trivia master.
All in all, it was another grand success!
