6th Annual Trivia Night raises over $12,000 for Gardner Chamber

The Gardner Chamber and Gardner Rotary Club hosted a packed house of almost 250 people for the 6th Annual Trivia Night on Saturday, Feb. 11 at Divine Mercy Church. The church’s CFC hall was nearly full.

Steve Hines, president of the Gardner Rotary Club was the quizmaster and host for the evening.

The proceeds from the event were split between the chamber and the Rotary Club foundation to support ongoing chamber activities and charitable functions of the Rotary Club.

This year’s trivia night had a record 30 teams. Many of the teams were decked out in matching attire and self-decorated themed tables. Attendees participated in six rounds of trivia, bid on multiple raffle baskets, and played interactive games with prizes totalling over $5000 in value. The winning team, “Quizzley Bears” beat out “The Trivia Team from Tatooine” and took home $800 in cash. The runners up “Better Living Through Chemistry” came in third and won $400. The “Clever Sons” (IMG_5600) weren’t so clever and “won” the last place prize of mugs of Dum-dums for each team member.
