YLC are thrilled to announce that almost $10,000 was raised at our 2017 trivia night, graciously (and compactly) hosted by The Clyde.
All of these funds have been donated directly to the Walter & Eliza Hall Institute's phase one trial of Empagliflozin, a promising new drug that improves blood glucose control (and therefore, general wellbeing and zen) in people living with type one diabetes.
Our special thanks to local legend Peter Vigano of Jellis Craig for his incredibly generous $2000 donation, and all of our other donors who contributed prizes to our raffle. A heartfelt shoutout to our long time love Arbory Bar, who donated a hotly coveted bar tab as first prize.
We would like to acknowledge leading researcher Dr John Wentworth for lending his time and charm on the night, and Sharon Bocarro at WEHI for her organisational support behind the scenes.
Above all, we would like to thank you: our wonderful supporters who lent their time, trivia zeal, and sweet sweet cash to our cause.
Check out our final team tally below, with congratulations to pictured champions The Family (*shakes fist*)
We look forward to hosting you again next year, where we promise a big venue and improved raffle ticketing system! <3
