Our Trivia Night 2017 was a fun and successful fundraiser for the Endangered Wolf Center.
Thanks to all who took part, and to those who sponsored the event – especially Event Sponsor Jay Smith – or donated prizes. Trivia Night 2017 was held Friday Feb. 10 at the Kirkwood Community Center, 111 South Geyer Road.
More than 300 players competed, with the winning team – table #31 – getting 96 of 100 answers correct. The second and third teams had 93 and 92 correct.
This year, we added a VIP table level, where guests got to meet and be photographed with ambassador animals before the Trivia contest, including our fennec fix Daisy and McGwire the World Bird Sanctuary bald eagle. Our western hognose snake Clay was on hand (literally) as were a pair of parrots. VIPs enjoyed table service – no waiting in line for beer, soda, water or snacks – plus preferred seating. If you weren’t a VIP this year, you’ll probably want to enjoy its advantages next year.
All guests over age 21 enjoyed free Budweiser, Bud Light and Michelob Ultra, thanks to the generosity of Grey Eagle Distributors. And all guests were welcome to soda, water and snacks.
