Masjid Salaam Trivia Night

25 August 2023

Alhumdulillah, Allah has bestowed His blessings upon the inaugural ‘MASJID SALAAM TRIVIA NIGHT'. With over 140 guests in attendance, our community support and amazing sponsors have inspired proactive steps towards a Masjid in Epping inShaAllah.

Firstly, we would like to acknowledge and thank our major sponsor Jamil Allouche from Ray White Brunswick, as well as our additional partnering sponsors Rabia Chaaraoui (ThinkSmart Accounting and Tax Solutions), Ali Fahour (Bachar Houli Foundation) and Houssam Afiouni (Afiouni Sweets and Pastries).

There were many highlights on the night, like mini golf challenge and the entertainment throughout the trivia rounds. Yet, the most unforgettable moment on the night was the remarkable sale result for the signed Richmond guernsey, which sold for $30,000 during the live auction. We were honoured to have Andrew Martin lead the auction on behalf of Ray White Brunswick, who also donated generously towards the Masjid.

The night's target of $50,000 was surpassed alhumdulillah, with the

final amount reaching a total $59,192.62, ALLAHU AKBAR!
