What a blast! Friday evening marked Carbon’s fourth annual Bogan Bingo event, and it did not disappoint! Over 130 of Perth’s finest bogans joined us for a night filled with laughter, prizes, air guitar competitions, and in true bogan style; a few cans of Emu Export. Thank you to everyone who attended and supported our event.
What a blast! Friday evening marked Carbon’s fourth annual Bogan Bingo event, and it did not disappoint! Over 130 of Perth’s finest bogans joined us at Telethon Speech & Hearing
Auditorium for a night filled with laughter, prizes, air guitar competitions, and in true bogan style; a few cans of Emu Export.
We raised a massive $9,075.38!
The event is half game show, half party, with guests wearing their best bogan attire for a chance to be crowned Perth’s best dressed bogan. During the show, our bogans took part in air guitar competitions and bogan catwalks, all in the name of raising funds for charity.
Our chosen charity this year was Classroom of Hope
. Classroom of Hope is a non-government organisation founded by Duncan Ward in 2012. Their purpose is to provide access to quality education to children in developing countries. To date, they have developed 27 child-friendly schools, built two new schools, and distributed 630 scholarships in Cambodia, Rwanda and Indonesia and have provided quality education to 9081 children living in these areas.
Carbon have teamed up with a few organisations around Perth to fundraise for their latest project; to build a fully staffed, fully sustainable school in a remote, poverty-stricken community in Cambodia. The school will house 200+ students and has an estimated lifespan of 40 years.
“Through the generosity of Carbon Group in hosting the Bogan Bingo event last week, the 130+ people who attended can be very proud of their contribution towards building a new school in rural Cambodia next year and the opportunities this will provide to the local children. Well done to the Carbon Group team for hosting a fun and successful event that will deliver both positive and lasting change!” Warren Salamone, Chairman, Classroom of Hope.
A HUGE thank you to everyone who supported and attended our Bogan Bingo night and helping us to raise a substantial amount, and to our special team of Carbonites for volunteering their evening on Friday to help run the night and ensure it was a success.
