Doing It For The Kids – OAR FM Music Quiz A Great Success

Annual Fundraiser Supports ‘Youth Zone’ Programming

The Leith Bowling Club in Duke Street was jam-packed with music fans of all ages on Thursday 13 August for OAR FM’s annual fundraising music quiz in support of weekday Youth Zone programming.

Twenty-one teams vied for the glory of being named Music Quiz Champion (and an amazing prize pool, thanks to a host of wonderful Dunedin businesses), with around 110 participants contesting eight rounds of music-themed questions compiled by Quiz Master/Station Manager Lesley Paris.

OAR FM’s community liaison/OARsome Morning Show host Jeff Harford MC’d the night, while volunteers from the Otago Community Broadcasters Society’s Executive Committee worked the room for raffle sales, and helped with the important task of checking and scoring.FullSizeRender (16)

A huge amount of fun was had by all, with team Diamond Dogs (pictured above) leading from the front to win the night.

And most importantly, a record amount was raised to support continued opportunities for young people from our community to have their voices heard on Youth Zone shows, 4pm-5pm weekdays.

The biggest cheer of the night went to Les, Jim and the team from Leith Bowling Club for allowing us to use their wonderful venue, and for all they work they put into set-up and refreshments.
