Quizzes for Fundraising at Africa

Africa is a large function venue. We host general knowledge quizzes for charity fund-raising purposes. General knowledge quizzes are a popular and efficient fund-raising method for charitable groups.

Important Facts

  • Capacity - 200 in a quiz format;
  • The recommended format is upto 40 teams of 6 = 240. This maximises fund-raising capacity while ensuring that all participants can be seated comfortably;
  • Availability – Sunday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday nights are currently recommended but this changes as other regular events are scheduled. Please discuss the options with us prior to committing to a particular day;
  • Start time – Africa is flexible but recommends 7.00 for 7.30pm, to finish by 10.30pm;
  • We offer a wide range of meals, which may be convenient for guests prior to the quiz (but bookings are recommended for quiz nights). Special discounts for quiz players can be arranged;
  • Due to the fixed costs for Africa of hosting a large quiz, it is not economically viable to host a charity quiz with less than 80 guests.

Africa provides

  • Quiz and all consumables such as answer booklets;
  • Quiz host and scorers;
  • PA system (if necessary);
  • Cash bar (and meals)
  • A complimentary round of drinks to the team that wins the "Quizzler".

Quiz Organiser to:

  • Sell 120 tickets ($15-$20 per person) or say $100 per team of 6 (Organiser's choice as Africa has nothing to do with this aspect);
  • Source prizes (in groups of 6, depending on selected team size), ideally provided free of charge by sponsors;
  • Communicate the address, start time and information about meals/booking, etc to guests;
  • Provide 2-3 individuals to assist with collecting answer sheets on the night (if very large quiz);
  • Preferably source some auction items or other items to raffle, to raise additional funds – the quiz host is not a licensed auctioneer but can auction a few items informally.

Please contact us for more information or to plan/book a charity quiz evening. We would be happy to help!
