TRIVIA buffs turned out in droves at the weekend for St Patrick's School's ninth annual trivia night fundraiser.

About 200 contestants packed themselves into the Allora Community Hall for the Rattle of the Brains trivia event.

While the final calculations have yet to be compiled, the funds raised on the evening will be used to install air-conditioning in the classrooms and library.

P&F president Monique Bryson paid thanks to everyone who had helped make the event such a success.

"Thanks goes to the Parents and Friends who volunteered their time and hard work to achieve such a wonderful night," she said.

"A special mention to the Year 6 and 7 students who each year work tirelessly as waiters and waitresses to our patrons."

The gracious first place winners generously donated their cash winnings back to the school and Mrs Bryson congratulated all of the winning teams on their victories.

"The event was hotly contested, with 24 teams competing for first place honours and the eventual winners being a team ironically called No Idea at All," she said.

"Second and third place went to Perfect Strangers and Krusty Demons."

Fellow member of the organising committee Kylie Brasch said the event was always well supported by the community.

"The night is a lot of fun and we are quite generous with our prizes," Mrs Brasch said.

"There are lucky seat prizes, heaps of fund games and everyone has a great time.

"It takes a lot of work behind the scenes and we would like to thank the community because they always turn out for our events and are always so giving."
