Trivia Night 2018

Trivia Night 2018 was a fabulous success as a Foundation fundraiser and a night of fun for those attending! Costumes were clever, questions were tricky, raffle prizes were fantastic, and the new photo booth was a hit.

The Nineinsteins

We learned that we are not all smarter than 5th graders. This year’s spelling bee round was a challenging way to earn team points.  As usual the Heads or Tails game, raffles and this year’s live auction all added to the evening’s excitement and fun!

Congrats to the I Like Pig Butts and I Cannot Lie team for their tie-breaker victory over the Very Stable Geniuses!
