The Operation Santa Claus coffers swelled on Saturday night when Sai Kung residents gathered at the waterfront patio of the Hebe Haven Yacht Club for the fifth annual Sai Kung District Link Quiz Night.

'We had a good turnout, about 100-plus people,' said quizmaster Sonya Raewelker.

'It's important to keep this fun. People are so hard-hit with charitable commitments these days that we are really here to show them a good time, do what they can for charity, but have fun doing it.'

Sections such as, 'Name that famous face' and 'Name that tune' were part of the quiz, which has raised more than $63,000 for Operation Santa Claus over the past four years.

Funds were also raised through raffles. The top prize was a helicopter ride to Macau and a one-night stay there.
