Battle of the Brains: An Aquatica themed Trivia for a good cause


The much-anticipated “Battle of the Brains” themed quiz event returned for its fourth consecutive year at the Atrium room of Renaissance Wind Creek Curaçao Resort on March 16, 2024. Organized by Ronald McDonald House Charities Curaçao, the event aimed to raise funds to support families with seriously ill, injured, or hospitalized children.

Families coping with the challenges of having a sick child often face financial and emotional burdens. Ronald McDonald House Charities Curaçao provides support to these families, ensuring they do not face these challenges alone.

This year’s Battle of the Brains was a resounding success, thanks to the support of approximately 65 sponsors who generously contributed to the cause. Participants were treated to an evening of excitement and entertainment, with teams competing in a quiz contest and enjoying music from DJ Boogieman in a transformed “under water” venue designed and sponsored by the talented Ian Sillé from Help’R.

The event also featured a costume contest, adding to the festive atmosphere of the evening. For the second year in a row “Banktopus” team emerged victorious as the overall winners of the quiz contest.

The generosity of sponsors, volunteers, and attendees helped raise a total of 40,000 guilders, which will directly benefit the Ronald McDonald House Charities Curaçao and the families they support.

“We are incredibly grateful for the overwhelming support we received for this year’s Battle of the Brains event,” said Claudia Rigaud, Executive Director at Ronald McDonald House Charities Curaçao. “The funds raised will make a significant difference in the lives of families facing difficult circumstances. We extend our heartfelt thanks to all who contributed to the success of the event.”

Ronald McDonald House Charities Curaçao looks forward to continuing its mission of providing support and assistance to families in need, and can’t wait to blow your minds with  the 5th Battle of the Brains event in 2025.
