Emily Silverstone for Rainforest Rescue at the KStar Trivia Night

Nothing Trivial About It!

When it comes to rescuing rainforests there are so many ways you can help. Our Daintree Supporters Wrangler, Emily Silverstone, helped local Quiz Master Kevin “KStar” Eldridge throw the second Rainforest Rescue Trivia Night fundraiser.

It was awesome!

Emily is awesome. She said, “I’m just so overwhelmed with all the support we received. Everyone who said they were coming came!! It was huge!!”

In addition to KStar, and (Huge Thanks to) Helen at the Central Hotel, a lot of folks put trivia table teams together, including:

The gathered crowd of teams for the rainforest

Emily also wanted to thank  “all my beautiful friends who have just been champions to me especially over the last few months!”

Overall there were about 150 people playing including 20 teams.

Look at all the folks who came out to play for the rainforests!

This is serious trivia!

Thanks to so many of our local business supporters, partners and sponsors. We had lucky door prizes, raffle prizes, kids’ lucky dips, auctions, prizes for the best team name – Periodic table dancers – by GBR legacy and prizes for the winners…and even last place prizes!

Everyone’s a winner!

We had 50 local businesses who contributed to the prize pool! That amounted to roughly $5000 worth of prizes. I know, right?

Gift hampers, over-night accommodation, reef trips, rainforest tours, river cruises, dining packages, jewelry, gift vouchers, books, artwork…. you name it!

And the prizes to support this super night came from Cape Trib to Cairns… some even approached us and asked if they could donate something in support when they saw we were the beneficiaries of this special trivia night. How good is that?!

It was great to have our new Land Manager and our Nursery Manager there to help out – Grant Morrison and Marine Deliens. It’s good to have them come down from the rainforest from time to time.

Also, a big thanks to Narelle, Emily’s trusty side-kick. Narelle works for Daintree Wonder Tours and Daintree Ice Cream Co (so delicious) and Great Barrier Reef Legacy…Em says she couldn’t have done it without her. Thanks Narelle!

A huge thank you to Helen and The Central Hotel for having us – and big thanks for their $500 donation as well.

$5830.00 was raised on the night!

Nothing trivial about it.

Big thanks to everyone.

Together we are Protecting Rainforests Forever!
