Our inaugural Trivia Night and Silent Auction fundraiser held on June 12 was a rollicking success. Guests enjoyed social time and light snacks as they assembled their teams. Then after brief introductions, the games began with emcee Nelson McDaniel asking the questions for round 1 of 4.
During the break after each round, guests had a chance to refresh their drinks, bid on silent auction items and visit with friends. Then it was back to the tables to hear the answers, find out who won and check out cumulative team scores on the interactive scoreboard.
Competition was intense, but in the end the Quizzly Bears had one more point to earn their first place medals and take home the trophy.
The night got even better for Craven Literacy when team captain Jon Segal announced that they were donating their $500 prize to the council.
Thanks to all who helped raise $8,000 to improve adult literacy in our community.
