2011 FAWG Quiz Night

Thank you all very much for supporting our Quiz night! After months of organising the event, the culmination of it all was truly exciting as the house was full last night at the USP Gym! More than 30 teams battled for the top 3 positions at FAWG’s annual fundraiser.

Masada Vuikadavu was a very witty and entertaining Emcee. As Masada led us through the whole evening, our all-seeing and all-knowing judges seriously enjoyed themselves checking answer sheets that contained both serious and the most hilarious answers! Vinaka vakalevu to Masada and to our four judges, Dr Helen Tavola, Joan Yee, Alison Haynes and Marita Manley. Also a big thank you to Lily Vesikula, Dr Akanisi Kedrayate, and all  young members and volunteers. Without your hard work and efforts this event would not have come into fruition. It is your commitment and dedication that keeps the spirit of the Association alive.

To everyone who participated, we hope that you enjoyed yourselves and thanks so much for coming to support us! To our sponsors, we are very grateful for your kindness and generosity. Vinaka vakalevu, Dhanyavaad and Thank you!

All proceeds from the Quiz Night will be put towards the FAWG Scholarship Fund, which pays for the tuition fees of our young women scholars studying in non-traditional fields at the Fiji National University (FNU). Some photos are shown below. To view more please visit our Facebook album here.
