ABF Pub Quiz a great success

The ABF Pub Quiz, hosted at Fillet Signature Cut in Douglasdale, was well supported by the industry, but the ultimate victor was the team from Times Media.
"We had a great turnout with 18 teams participating," says Sharlene Valance, Fundraiser for the ABF. "The teams came well prepared and were served delicious fare from Filet Signature Cut restaurant. We extend our congratulations to Times Media and our thanks to Incredible Connection and Tsogo Sun for their generous prize sponsorship.

The quizmaster, Gavin Taylor, surprised the gathering with a cross-section of questions from geography to literature. No cell phones were allowed and fines were handed out if anyone was caught cheating.

Gavin, an old hand at hosting evenings such as this, set a playful, genial vibe for the evening. "We would like to thank the following companies for their participation and support for the ABF: Cinemark, Obrian, MindShare World, AdZone, Charlie Bravo, Primedia Outdoor, Underline Advertising, NAB, Efficiency Media, First Win Media t/a Golf Unlimited, The MediaShop, Sunday Times, Sync Advertising, Times Media and Incredible Connection," she says.

We encourage the industry to keep a look out for the next ABF event which will be hosted on the 11 November at Kyalami Golf Club. Should you wish to participate, please contact az.oc.ten@enelrahs.


The ABF is a non-profit organisation helping those in the advertising, media and allied industries that have fallen on hard times. Amongst its many contributions, the ABF, in conjunction with Lifeline have a dedicated 24/7 call centre line for people in the Advertising, Media and related industries who need counselling or treatment for stress, HIV/AIDS and substance abuse problems. The ABF also provides study in the field to deserving, underprivileged students with institutions like the AAA.
