Trivia Night

Our community came together on Saturday, March 29, 2014 for Trivia Night, a benefit for the Capital and Endowment Campaign. The event was a huge success and we were able to raise $20,000 that will be matched by 2.5 for a total of $70,000!

This event would not be possible without the help of many people pitching in. A big thanks to the many individuals and businesses who generously donated their time, sponsorships, and silent auction items. Thank you for making this a successful event!
