Trivia Night 2015 was a huge success, attracting almost 340 players and setting a fundraising record for our annual trivia. The event raised more than $20,000. All proceeds are used to continue the Endangered Wolf Center’s important mission of preserving Mexican wolves and red wolves and returning them to the wild.
