ABOUT 70 people attended Bendigo’s newest Rotary club first fundraiser on Friday night.
The Rotary Club of Bendigo Next Generation hosted a Spring Racing themed trivia night to raise money for their humanitarian trip to Cambodia in December.
Trivia-goers dressed up with some donning coloured fascinators and others wearing suit and ties.
Rotary member Meghan Rogers said the event was success.
She said about $1700 was raised from the evening.
“We were hoping to raise at least $1000,” Miss Rogers said.
“We thought anything we raise above that would be a bonus.
“We are all so happy with how many people came, it was a fantastic night.”
Rotary member Tim Connors was the host for the night, he got into the spring racing theme dressing up as a jockey.
“I thought he did a really great job,” Miss Rogers said.
“I think everyone had a really good time.”
Four people from the Rotary club will be travelling to the third-world country for 13 days.
Miss Rogers said the money raised from the evening would be put toward purchasing water pumps, school supplies, clothes and any other basic necessities.
“We will be touring some of the country’s poorer schools and communities," she said.
Miss Rogers said the night would not have been made possible if it wasn’t for the support from Bendigo businesses.
The Rotary club’s next fundraiser will be a garage sale on October 26.
