Go To Court Lawyers test trivia in support of charity

Following an invitation from the NSW Young Lawyers, Go To Court could not resist pitting themselves against other lawyers and accountants in a trivia contest, all in the name of charity.

Lawyers from our Go To Court Sydney and Liverpool offices recently participated in the NSW Young Lawyers and Chartered Accountants ANZ Cross Industry Charity Trivia Night, held in Sydney on 11 August, 2016.

The event was supporting The Alannah and Madeline Foundation, and Alzheimer’s Australia.

Go To Court's team at the trivia nightThe Alannah and Madeline Foundation was set up in memory of Alannah and Madeline Mikac, aged six and three, who were tragically killed, along with their mother and 32 others, during the Port Arthur Massacre at Port Arthur, Tasmania, on 28 April 1996.

The Foundation was launched in 1997 and has been operating for almost 20 years.  Its key objectives are to care for children who have experienced or witnessed serious violence, reduce the incidence of bullying, cyber-bullying and other cyber risks, and advocate for the safety and wellbeing of children.  The Alannah and Madeline Foundation’s vision is that every child will live in a safe and supportive environment.

Alzheimer’s Australia represents the more than 353,800 Australians living with dementia and the estimated 1.2 million Australians involved in their care.  This foundation advocates for the needs of people living with all types of dementia, and for their families and carers, and provides support services, education and information.

Alzheimer’s Australia is a member of Alzheimer’s Disease International, the umbrella organisation of Alzheimer’s Associations around the world.  Alzheimer’s Australia also represents, at the national level, the interests of its federation of state and territory members, on all matters relating to dementia and carer issues.

After three hotly contested rounds, Go To Court, with their debaucherously quirky team name ‘Premature Adjudication’, finished the night in second place.  The event involved around 15 amusingly-named trivia teams made up of lawyers and accountants.

NSW State Manager Jack Leitner summed up a very entertaining and charitable evening, saying the Go To Court team was close-knit both at work and outside.

Together, we were able to share our collective knowledge and experience, in order to not only have a very fun evening, but to further develop our strong bond as a team, in support of two very worthwhile charities,” he said.

It is this ability to work closely as a team which makes us an extremely knowledgeable, dynamic and experienced group of lawyers, who work together in the common goal of achieving justice and to obtain the best results for our clients.”

A great night was had by all.  Thank you to the NSW Young Lawyers and the Australian and New Zealand Institute of Chartered Accountants, and their sponsors, for putting on such a wonderful and worthwhile event, in support of two very worthwhile causes.
