Commercial property professionals took a trip down memory lane at Après in Summer Row to test their knowledge of pop music, all in aid of Marie Curie Hospice in Solihull.
The fundraiser was organised by Melissa Harvey, of Hortons, in memory of a colleague, Gary Playford who died on May 2007.
Gary had been battling a brain tumour for many years and was cared for at the hospice which also provided help and support to his family.
Thanks to the generous support of the 20 teams more than £6,000 was raised. The raffle and auction proved a highlight of the evening and raised in excess of £1,000 the total was boosted by the auction of a XBox360, which was donated by Colliers CRE.
The winners, following a close battle, were Concept Signs, only one point ahead of runners-up Shoosmiths. Jones Lang LaSalle won the wooden spoon award.
The quiz is just one of the ways in which Hortons staff have raised money for Marie Curie, their charity for 2008, others include running the Edinburgh marathon and the Great North Run and participating in the “Blooming Great Tea Party”. It is hoped that over £10,000 will be raised in total.
