The annual HYPA Boileau Gala Quiz Night was held on Friday March 18 and it was another big event, with almost 500 people attending.

This year we adopted a gala theme and returned to the Entertainment Centre where local media identity Michael Smyth was on hand to host the event. Guests enjoyed a delicious three course meal, accompanied by a selection of d’Arenberg wines, while raising much needed funds to help more young people to stand on their own #TwoFeet.

Together we raised over $45,000 and 100% of the proceeds from the night will be put towards supporting young people through our affordable living program, HYPA Housing. HYPA Housing provides young people with the security and stability of a safe home at an affordable rent, enabling them to focus on work or study that will pave the way for an independent and self sufficient life into the future.

A special thanks to all our sponsors and supporters who gave generously to help make the event a great success. In particular we’d like to offer a big thanks to our presenting partner and naming rights sponsor Boileau Business Technology, who have been supporters of our Quiz Night for nearly 10 years now.

We also thank Aimee, Braden, Emily and Sky from HYPA’s Youth Leadership Team and the staff from Datacom deserves a special thanks for acting as our volunteer team on the night. We are also very grateful for Aimee’s contribution on stage, where she shared her inspirational story with the audience and told them how HYPA had helped her to stand on her own #TwoFeet.

2017 will see the HYPA Quiz Night return to the Adelaide Entertainment Centre on Friday March 31 and early bird tickets are available until Thursday June 30, so book now.
