ACON Northern Rivers is running a trivia night at Lismore Workers Club on Friday between 7pm and 10pm as part of this year's World AIDS Day activities.

The event, dubbed Tantalising Trivia II, is intended to raise money for people with HIV.

In a statement, Acon said the night would be hosted by Tobin Saunders and would combine entertainment and education "with a twist of social comment and inimitable humour".

The night would feature raffles, lucky door prizes and interactive games. ACON has secured a bounty of prizes to ensure many people leave with something special.

Entertainment would be provided by the Peter, Paul and Mandy, who "will serenade arrivals with their intriguing and mellifluous take on lounge and spicy classics channelled through their trusty ukulele".

ACON Northern Rivers Manager Marie Reilly says: "Tantalising Trivia II is a chance for the local community to test their wits and skills in a comfy, stylish and fun environment".

Host and ACON Community Health Promotion Officer Tobin Saunders says all funds raised on the night will support HIV programs and services in the Northern Rivers region.

"World AIDS Day holds a special place in my heart and it's important that we celebrate the week in style and verve, not just for those living with HIV in the Northern Rivers but for all people both past and present for whom HIV has impacted their lives".
