Trivia Contest Triumph
On Saturday, November 2, we had our Trivia Contest fundraiser at Sweet Basil Restaurant. We are delighted to inform all who participated that we raised almost twice as much as we ever have at past events. The grand total was $5,904!
I want to thank everyone who made this trivia contest possible: The first thank you goes out to JJ Fazio, the owner of Sweet Basil. Thank you so much for letting us use your beautiful back room free of charge, it was the perfect space. Thank you to John Winchell and the Warren/ Washington Victim Impact Panel for sponsoring this event and subsidizing the costs of the food; it made all the difference. A big thank you to Juicin’ Jar, Sweet Basil, O'Brien Insurance, Whiteman Chevrolet and especially Patty Bethel from Cooper’s Cave Ale Company for donating the amazing prize baskets for the winners. Thank you to Dave Blow for his wonderful article in The Post Star. Thank you to the members of my Board of Directors who set aside their busy schedules to be there that night, whether that meant participating at a table or helping to facilitate the event. Thank you to my phenomenal staff, especially my amazing Assistant Director, Meghan McMahon; this event wouldn’t have been possible without you. And most importantly, thanks again to everyone who supported our cause.
There was a battle for first place but, in the end, the Post Star Academic Bowl Coaches clinched the win! Congrats!
