About This Event
The Pyjama Foundation’s Battle of the Brains Trivia Night is all about coming together with your friends, family and colleagues to go head to head with other teams to see which team is the smartest – taking out the title of ‘Trivia cChampion 2019’! It’s also about raising much needed funds for children in foster care who deserve a brighter start in life.
Currently, there are more than 55,000 children living in out-of-home care in Australia. Children in foster care form the lowest educational pool in Australia, and statistics show that these kids are on average seven years behind their peers academically. Without a strong educational foundation in life, many of these children run the risk of heading down a perilous path, entering the juvenile justice system, becoming a parent at an early age, or homelessness.
Through The Pyjama Foundation’s one-on-one mentoring program called the ‘Love of Learning Program’, our mission is to make these children’s dreams a reality.
We screen, train and recruit volunteers called ‘Pyjama Angels’ and match them with children in foster care. Together, they spend time reading books, play educational games and focus on school work. Most importantly, Pyjama Angels provide the children with constant love and support to help them achieve their dreams.
An event like our Battle of the Brains Trivia Night aims to bring the community together including our incredible supporters - Pyjama Angels, Carers, Case Workers, Corporates and Local Businesses. Featured on the night will also be amazing prizes to win, giveaways, a silent and live auction as well as a photo booth to capture your memories forever.
Venue: Function Centre, Frankston Arts Centre
