Test your brain power against the best in the business for Marie Curie

Scotland’s big-hearted business community is encouraged to get their thinking caps on and support a brain-teasing fundraiser later this year.

With all the proceeds going to terminal illness charity Marie Curie, organisers are encouraging companies to test their general knowledge in the Glasgow Brain Game on Thursday, October 12, 2017 at The Hilton Glasgow, from 7pm until midnight.

Tables for 10 are available and the event is perfect for entertaining clients, networking or simply having a fabulous evening.

Reigning champions Shepherd and Wedderburn will be hoping to hold onto their title as they battle it out against challengers in the fun black tie quiz, this year hosted by Hazel Irvine and Rob Maclean. Organisers hope to beat last year’s fundraising total which saw a record-breaking £136,000 raised for Marie Curie.

Sponsors so far include United Airlines and the organising committee is keen to sign up more sponsors with a choice of two sponsorship packages available.

David Beal, Managing Director at The Beal Group Ltd. and Glasgow Brain Game committee member, said: “Demand for tables grows year on year and I cannot emphasise strongly enough that businesses should buy tickets well in advance to ensure they secure a chance to compete in the corporate challenge of the year.

“2017 promises to be another exceptional occasion filled with fun, competitive quizzing and corporate networking, perfect for entertaining clients and networking.”

Catherine Maclean, Marie Curie Special Events Manager, added: “You and your guests will enjoy a sparkling drinks reception, a sumptuous three-course dinner and participate in the highly-anticipated and competitive quick fire quiz which will run throughout the evening for the 2017 trophy.

“Guests will also have the opportunity to bid for exclusive lots in the live and silent auctions and win superb prizes in the grand raffle.”

Marie Curie is the leading charity for people living with a terminal illness and their families. Last year the charity provided care and support to over 8,000 people through its two Scottish hospices, through the West Lothian Palliative Care Service and in people’s homes across Scotland. There’s also a free confidential support line for anyone who has questions about terminal illness – 0800 090 2309.
