Barfoot & Thompson’s 10th annual Quiz Night raises $198,000 for the Starship Foundation

Barfoot & Thompson has been a sponsor of the Starship Foundation since 2003 and a Five-Star Partner since 2004.  From company-wide initiatives, branch fundraising events, and individual sales people’s efforts, the company is involved at every level to support the hospital and the people that are making a difference to Kiwi children’s lives. The annual Starship Quiz night is always a highlight on our fundraising calendar, bringing our people, suppliers, and partners together in a fun environment to raise as much as possible for the Starship Foundation. Thanks to personal contributions, ticket sales of tables and raffles, silent auction, and bidding; the annual quiz night was the most profitable to date. This years event raised an incredible $198,000 for the Starship Foundation.
