Centuria raises $80K for kids in need

Trivia Night Cheque presentation 2018
Centuria’s annual Trivia Night has exceeded expectations this year, raising more than $80,000 for St Lucy’s School for students with disabilities last night.

Nearly 200 agents, business partners, suppliers and other associates packed KPMG’s offices on Thursday 28 June for a night of fun and generosity.

Whilst competition was hot for the coveted trivia crown, the big winner was St Lucy’s School with attendees digging deep to support this worthy establishment.

St Lucy’s School is a primary school for students with disabilities, which provides excellence in education that empowers students with the values, knowledge, attitudes and skills to flourish and participate fully in society.

Guests were deeply moved after hearing a heartfelt speech from Shannon on the life changing support that St Lucy’s school provides for its students, including her disabled 11 year-old daughter.

There was barely a dry eye in the room as she shared the challenges of having to “wear many hats” as a single mum, her unwavering love for her daughter despite the daily challenges of being a carer, and the phenomenal support, development and joy provided by St Lucy’s, which has made the world of difference in their lives.

In its seventh year, to date Centuria has raised more than $250,000 for St Lucy’s School from this annual event.

Centuria Capital Group CEO, John McBain said:

“I’m personally touched at how generous attendees have been, the result is outstanding.

“St Lucy’s is a cause close to our hearts, and we are delighted to have been able to contribute both financially and through our staff volunteer program to help make a difference in the lives of students and their families.

“Thank you to all our partners for attending and making the event a great success, and of course congratulations to Blackrock, who took home the trivia crown this year.”
