Question: What annual event combines fun and fundraising to benefit Greenwich Public Schools programs and scholarships?
Answer: Greenwich Alliance for Education’s Trivia Night!
The 2021 event, which will be held virtually on Friday, March 19 from 6:45 to 9:00pm, features six rounds of general trivia questions as well as an online silent auction and a paddle raise.
“Trivia Night is a highlight of the Alliance’s annual fundraising calendar, and we are taking the fun virtual this year,” said Julie Faryniarz, Executive Director, Greenwich Alliance for Education. “The 2021 event will raise even more funds for Greenwich Alliance Scholarship Fund through a generous $25,000 match.”
Teams collaborate via Zoom in dedicated break-out rooms and answers are submitted online. Prizes will be awarded to the top two scoring teams, as well as to one team determined to have the “Best Team Name.”
