Your 2017 Winners!
The 2017 Foundation Night of Trivia was once again, a smashing success. More than 200 players that comprised 18 teams were in attendance. Special thanks go out to Kim Hartnett, Trustee, for coordinating with the Heidelberg Fire Department and The Texas Roadhouse. Each team, of course, rounded out the eats with their own assortment of goodies and beverages. “Wow”
As come to be expected, the Trustees, under the guidance of Stacey O’Connor, managed quite a magnificent array of over 30 raffle baskets, including ‘super’ baskets with Pirate Tickets and a LaTang autographed Penguin’s Jersey.
This year, the Foundation mixed it up a bit by spreading the hosting job amongst the Trustees. The layout of the room was also changed allowing them to enlarge the projection screen for better viewing of the questions. The audience feedback was great! Next year, the focus will be on improving the sound system utilized for the function.
In case your wondering where the questions used in the game originate, here’s the scoop…..Each Foundation Trustee researches a different category to come up with 10 or so questions that they feel might stump the audience. The trivia committee reviews the questions and selects those that will become part of the game. The bonus rounds spring from various ideas generated throughout the planning stages.
Much of the annual work of the Foundation comes from the support of our Trivia participants and corporate sponsors each year. Their generous donations allow the Foundation to continue to provide scholarships, GIVE grants, and awards.
