Encompass’ first ever All Abilities Ball is a step closer with Geelong Greyhound Racing Club (GGRC) joining the cause by hosting a trivia night to raise funds for the event.

Encompass is a NDIS provider which has been actively engaged in the Geelong region for more than 37 years.

Encompass general manager Janelle Davey said the trivia night will raise money to stage an event that has been highly anticipated since the start of the pandemic.

“Another colleague and I came up with this idea back in 2020 but COVID stopped it from coming to life until this year,” she said.

“The ball is about giving people of all abilities the chance to make the experience whatever they want it to be. We want to create an inclusive environment that allows everyone to have a good time.”

Individual Support Manager for Encompass Tracey Kenshole said GGRC was willing to help right from the beginning.

“People don’t realise how much time and effort goes into organising an event like this from both sides,” she said.

“There are always a lot of last-minute changes, but it is great to know that the club has our back and is willing to help.”

The trivia night will be held at GGRC’s Beckley Park track on October 15 and is open to all members of the public. Tickets ( cost $35 per person or $300 for a table of 10. All tickets include complimentary finger food and drinks at bar prices, as well as the chance to win some major prizes in a silent auction.
