MDA Trivia Night a huge success teaming together wine, cheese and games!
Recently, the MDA Head Office came alive with supporters enjoying the spoils of wine, cheese and a chance to show off their general knowledge, all to raise funds for the MD community at the MDA Trivia Night. The event raised an impressive $2,500 for MD programs, services and research.
Close to 100 people participated in the evening which saw long-time members of MDA, new supporters, corporates and MDA staff all compete for the chance to rein supreme as the trivia champions. The night was enhanced by having wine and cheese tasting running in conjunction with the games, some may say a match made in heaven. Five boutique wineries and a local cheesemaker showcased their products and provided sampling to the guests, as well as donating a percentage of their sales to MDA.
MDA would like to extend a huge thank you to the following wineries for offering their time and percentage of sales to make the event the wonderful success that it was: Allinda, Cofield, Juniper Estate, Meehan Vineyard and Wedgetail. A special thank you also goes to Andre Kogut from Blue Bay Cheeses for his participation and donation, and to Andrew McGarry from Wine Trek for coordinating all of the wineries and providing a special offer for MDA members. The event would not have been possible without all those who attended and MDA is so grateful to all those who participated, in particular for their enthusiasm in joining us in the fight against Muscular Dystrophy!
