Please join us for our first fundraiser of 2020
Maggie’s Trivia Night!
Maggie’s Rescue is a not for profit, animal rescue charity group based in Marrickville and is well known throughout the Inner-West of Sydney. The cats and dogs that come into our care are from shelters, pounds or surrendered by their owners and fostered until their forever homes can be found.
The demand for our assistance this year has been higher than ever, and in order to continue being able to accept animals for rehoming, we urgently need to raise funds for outstanding vet bills and support costs. We have set ourselves an initial target of $3,000 for the event which we hope to surpass, with help.
We need you!
In these difficult times we have found, along with many others that the best way to connect is via the wonderful technology we have at our fingertips. Let’s get back together to have some fun, celebrate our supportive community and enable Maggie’s to carry on the good fight!
Please join us for our FIRST Trivia night, hosted online, and brought to you in the convenience of your own home. Get your brains working and compete against your fellow Maggie’s supporters.
Win big in the trivia, or further your chances by buying raffle tickets aplenty.
Your efforts will be rewarded post quiz with a super fun disco dance party, brought to you by the fabulous DJ Wildflower.

Live Stream Trivia FAQ's
We will be running a video stream via Zoom. Our host will run you through the rules, the expectations, help you with your answer sheet, read each question out, and keep the game moving. The host is your best friend for the evening.
You will be provided with an answer sheet link once you can see and hear the host, on the stream & via the live chat. You will need to enter this website into your browser, either on a second screen or your phone. It’s important not to navigate away from this answer sheet, or refresh the answer sheet, for the duration of the game. Otherwise you may have to start all over again and we won’t be able to repeat any questions, sorry!
The day before the show starts, we will send out the link to the Live Stream Lobby. Another one will be sent out 2 hours before for those buying their tickets late.
Just before the show starts, head into the Stream Lobby. We advise logging in a maximum of 20 minutes before the session starts to ensure a smooth start to your game.
Well, it’s super easy, but we’re here to help just in case. Everything can be accessed via a web browser.
There are a few different options on how to play:
- One laptop or computer: Great! Have two browser windows/screens open. One for the stream, and one for the answer sheet. This is the most stable, hassle-free way to roll.
- One laptop / computer, one phone: Watch the stream on the computer in a web browser, answer on your phone in the web browser.
- Two phones: You are a very portable person. This will be a little cramped, and not how we recommend it at all, but it’s functional if you’re in a pinch. Have the stream on one phone, answers on the other. Both in the browser.
NOTE: You can use a tablet interchangeably with any of the above examples.
Nothing. Use your web browser for everything, and wait for your host to guide you.
Decide on what your team name will be with your other team members. Put something unique on the end, in case there are several teams with the same name. Eg. MaggiesWinners745
Only one answer sheet per team will be accepted. So if you have team members in different households they can still tune into the live stream but you MUST nominate one person to enter the answers.
You will enter your team name on the answer sheet when you get onto the link. Please also enter a contact email so we can reach you if your team wins!
The live host will instruct you where to put the information. If you see people in the chat asking about this, let them know it’s yet to come.
You can all enjoy the show from your households, but some teams may like to get a concurrent voice chat going in the background, so you can easily communicate with one another. You can use FaceTime, or Facebook Messenger, or even a video chat using House Party or Whatsapp. You’ll have to set that up on your own though and remember only one answer sheet per team.
Yes, but only if you want to. You can totally choose to stay in your pyjamas and keep your video off! Just be sure to make sure it’s off when entering the live stream for the first time. Only the host will be audible (as well is visible). Everyone attending will talk/heckle in the chat room. Honestly, some would argue it’s the best part of the show.
Hover your mouse over your video screen, click on the blue square with 3 white dots. Select the third option ‘Rename’. Type out your team name and ‘Enter’. Simples!!
At least Two hours before the show starts, an email with links to the Live Stream will be sent out. Also, check your junk folder if you can’t see it.
If at an hour before, it’s still tumbleweeds in your inbox, send a quick email to [email protected] and we’ll get you in, quick smart.
The Answer link will be revealed during the live stream.
Send a quick email to [email protected] with details on what problems you’re having. If you have any questions throughout the Trivia, there is a live chat room where our support team will be happy to help.
