Trivia Night 2017

LOTS OF LAUGHTER, AND APPLAUSE and some moaning, was heard at St. Agnes activity center for the Optimist Trivia Night on January 28, 2017.  21 teams crowded the room with food, drink and wisdom.  Some new faces appeared and I hope that they had fun!!! We tried to make the questions easier this year and I think we succeeded in most of the categories, as was evidenced by the scores.

The “SCALLY WAGS”, wearing imaginative costumes portraying their “PIRATE” theme won the creative category. The team “IRISH I KNEW THE ANSWER” were the 1st place winners answering the most trivia questions.  The prize for the best costumes is “bragging rights” and a $100 donation to the CIC in honor of Jim Jeskewitz.  The 1st Place winner of the Trivia questions receives a traveling trophy of the “thinker” and also a $100 donation to the CIC in honor of Jess.

With the combination of all of the games and registration, our profit for the night is around $4000.  This Trivia Night was originally designed as JUST a social event for the Optimist Club members but each year with all the enthusiasm of the participants, we raise money “FOR THE KIDS”.

We usually schedule “TRIVIA NIGHT” for the last Saturday in January.  Please put it on your 2018 calendar and get your creative juices stirring!!!!

We thank all of you that helped clean up after the event. We are fortunate to have such a great facility for such a reasonable cost and so we like to leave it as pristine as possible.
