Put on your thinking caps and prepare for a night of trivia supporting young migrant women.

The Migrant Resource Centre has joined with professional and career women organisation Zonta to host a night of trivial fun on Friday at the Launceston Golf Club.

All proceeds from the night go directly to the Migrant Resource Centre’s Youth Pathways program, helping young women and girls develop their lives with the support of the centre and the community.

Zonta Club of Launceston president Sue Dyson said the the organisation was “very inclusive” and supported women through their chosen career or professional pathways, which made it an ideal fit for supporting with MRC with the work done helping migrants establish their own lives.

MRC chief executive Ella Dixon said the centre frequently doorknocked local clubs and organisations to find support for the Youth Pathways program.

She said funding from the Tas Community Fund supports the employment of a pathways officer to work with youth settling in Launceston, but any activities the program participants want to take on require additional, community-based funding.

On Friday night Zonta welcomes anyone seeking an enjoyable night out for a good cause to the Launceston Golf Club, with silent auctions, raffle prizes and trivia all hosted by Alderman Danny Gibson.

Limited tickets are still available at $20 a person, which includes a light supper, starting at 6:30pm. No door sales will be available.
