Jeans for Genes

In 1999 a group of Lycopodium employees suggested holding a quiz night with the thought that if enough money was raised, it could be donated to the Children’s Medical Research Institute as part of Jeans for Genes Day.  With the full support of the Lycopodium management and an unbelievable response from donors and enthusiastic quiz goers, a fun filled annual event was born.

Since that first evening, Lycopodium has contributed over $120,000 to this cause.

Lycopodium now prepares for this annual event by requesting and collecting donations, issuing invites, organising questions, booking tables and organising the venue.  Several events, including a silent auction, raffles and coin donation as well as the quiz night itself, are organised over a period of the week to raise funds.

Our thanks to all our donors, quiz goers, staff and friends for their continued support, this event is sure to continue.
