A triviai night held at the Soldiers Club raised more than $10,000 for the Curtis Landers Appeal and the Mark Hughes Foundation.

The final figure from the night was $10,009.65, with $7000 to be donated to the Curtis Landers Appeal.

Organiser Tess Nolan said 180 people had participated in the night.

“We’ve always had a trivia night but in the past it’s just been a Sunday afternoon excuse to catch up,” she said.

“This year, because of what happened to Curtis, we decided to make it something more and the support we received has been amazing.”

More than $4600 was made through an auction of donated items and memorabilia.

The top-selling item, a framed poster signed by boxer Danny Green and donated by Perth Wildcats captain Damian Martin, sold for $2000.

The Soldiers Club board made a $1000 donation on the night and Mandy Preston handed over another cheque for $500.

“We made a further $214 from the coin toss (where participants tried and get a coin as close as they could to a bottle) and $200 in bribes,” Ms Nolan said.

“It was a fantastic night and we’re so grateful to all the support we received.”

Along with the large donation to the Curtis Landers Appeal, each of the 18 tables created a card for Curtis, which were delivered to Westmead Children’s Hospital last Wednesday.
