On January 26, 2017, trivia lovers from Champaign-Urbana and beyond came together to compete in a meeting of the minds for a great cause. 

Teams were challenged with a variety of questions put together by local trivia expert, Christine Akin, and the event at The City Center was emceed by Czar, of Sapphire Entertainment. The winning team received an amazing prize package: a party from Slowride Pedal Tours for up to 15 people, a $100 gift card to Baxters American Grilleand a case of beer to enjoy on the slow ride!
Total fundraising for the night (with 117 attendees and numerous raffle tickets sold) was $2,413. Wow!
