The quiz, held on 3 April at the Wanderers Club in Johannesburg, has been in existence since 2001. It is a night of competitive fun in which sports stars gather, business people mingle, and money is raised, says Barney Girnun, event owner and joint managing director of MSCSports.

“Congratulations to the overall winning team who just happened to be the Bidvest Services team, captained by Bidvest Services Head Alan Fainman,” Girnun says.

The generous donation for Selwyn Segal was raised through table sales, the auction of sports memorabilia and TAG Heuer watches, as well sports greats such as Schalk Brits, Jesse Kriel, and Vernon Philander, who were required to participate in the quiz itself.

Coupled with other sports celebrities such as Gavin Hunt, Jean de Villiers, Schalk Brits, and Dean Furman, the night was one to be remembered.
