Although my Super League season is over, my college season is still thriving!
Next Tuesday, Jazmen and I will be playing for WIT in the Division A College Championship game in the National Arena. If we beat Cork IT, we will be champions of the highest college division for all of Ireland!
Additionally, we will be traveling to Galway at the start of April to compete in a separate tournament called Varsities.
With these events coming up, we’ve been asked to do some fundraising to help the college pay for us to go to them. So, with the help of our Irish teammates, Jaz and I put our heads together and decided to organize a Quiz Night in the college to raise money. Jazmen showed incredible initiative in leading the entire event. She organized the location of the Quiz Night, printed off posters to publicize it, and even made a Facebook Event to promote it further. The rest of us did what we could to help by putting up the posters all over campus, sharing the Facebook Event, and inviting basically everyone we know in Waterford.
The Quiz Night took place last Thursday night, and went over well thanks to all the hard work we all put in, especially Jaz. She and I took turns being the “Quiz Master,” aka the person who read off the questions, answers, and overall scores. In one night, we raised nearly 350 euros for the WIT Women’s Basketball Team. We were thrilled with this, especially because we had very little time to organize and promote the Quiz Night. We never could have done it without Jaz, so thanks again for all your hard work.
We also wouldn’t have made a dime if we didn’t get anyone to come to the Quiz Night, so thanks again to all those who attended. Your support is deeply appreciated and won’t be forgotten soon. With the money we made, we will be able to make a large contribution to our WIT basketball fund. Although we still have a little way to go, every little bit helps, and the Quiz Night certainly set us on the right track.
