SUMMIT, NJ - Like a student-friendly instructor announcing a test date well in advance -- which enables more than ample studying and prep time -- the Junior League of Summit (JLS) is giving community members a healthy heads-up that their Annual Trivia Night extravaganza is on the horizon.
The 2018 event, celebrating the joy of knowing factoids more obscure than obvious, will be held February 10 at Chatham Fish & Game. Doors will open at 7 p.m, with the 'countdown to games' beginning at 7:45 p.m.
Tickets will go on sale at noon on January 10, with teams of up to 10 participants able to register for an entrance fee of $500. All competitors must be 21 years of age.
"This is a really fun event and it’s always amazing to see so much creativity and spirit from the participants," said event chairwoman Rachel Zucker. "There is a lot of friendly competition, with each table trying top the next with their costumes, table décor, and of course coveted trivia points. The competition is fierce and fun. It is a wonderful opportunity to have a great night out with your friends and other community members, all for a great cause.".
The festivities will include lively competition among the teams in various trivia categories, as well as interactive bonus rounds and extra points for best team themes and table décor. The evening will feature Adam Zucker, host of CBS Sports' College Football Today, as the competition's emcee.
As with previous years, all funds raised at Trivia Night benefit the JLS's Annual Fund, supporting its community grants, scholarships and projects such as GRACE, the League’s current community outreach project. The main focus of GRACE, which stands for Giving and Receiving Assistance for Our Community’s Essentials, is fighting food insecurity in Summit and the surrounding communities.
"The money raised by Trivia Night will provide an immediate impact on local families who are facing food insecurity. We are extremely proud of the growth and significance that GRACE has had to date and are excited about the momentum it has to make a lasting impact on our community.," said Liz Dutkewych, JLS President.
Chatham Fish & Game is located at 41 Fairmount Avenue.
