Brains for Blankets raises 856 blankets!!!

The 300 Blankets team would like to thank everyone who came and supported the Brains for Blankets trivia night on the 2nd of June 2012. On the night, 187 people in 20 teams competed in the sold out event to win amazing prizes generously donated by friends and supporters of 300 Blankets.

Our challenge for the night was to beat the amazing number of 842 blankets raised at Music for Blankets. Through ticket sales, raffles, mini games and silent auctions, we raised an amazing 856 blankets for the homeless community! The result together with the first event, has helped 300 Blankets raise 1698 blankets in time for winter 2012! From a crazy idea in January, this incredible number really shows the amount of support the people of Melbourne has for the homeless.

Let’s keep our community warm!

Congratulations to Smarty Pints for coming first in trivia!

The night would not have been possible without the support from the volunteers, generous organisations, artists, St Vincent de Paul Society Victoria and Hanover. A special thank you to Br. Doug – President of St Vincent de Paul Society Soup Vans in Victoria, for making an inspirational speech on soup vans and homelessness.

If you would like to share your photos and videos taken from the night, please send them to 300blankets.events@gmail.com.
