Everyone is Buzzing about the 9th Annual
Westborough Education Foundation Trivia Bee
Quick, can you answer this trivia: “What is a great way to spend a few hours with your Westborough friends and neighbors as you exercise your brain, your civic pride, and your silly bone, all while supporting all six Westborough Public Schools?” The answer is easy: bring your family to the Westborough Education Foundation Trivia Bee on Monday, October 24th at 6:30pm at the DoubleTree Hotel in Westborough. Who will be this year’s Trivia Bee Champs? The Central One-ders will be back to defend their title. Come cheer on your favorite team!
The Westborough Education Foundation is planning for a fun-filled event that will challenge teams to bring forth their best and brightest to compete in the contest. As in past years, the Bee will feature questions about New England sports, popular culture, government, science, the arts, literature, and Westborough history. In addition to the Trivia Bee entertainment, there will be kids’ activities, silent auction items, raffles, food and music. Back again this year, the award winning Westborough High School (and WEF grant recipients) will be demonstrating their robots. Sure to be a hit with the kids!
The Trivia Bee is the Westborough Education Foundation’s largest single fundraiser. More than 600 people attended last year’s Bee! The Trivia Bee event is open to the public. A $5 donation per person ($20 family cap) which includes pizza, drink and dessert is accepted at the door that evening. The 2015 event raised more than $17,000 to support educational grants to teachers and administrators from across all six of Westborough's public schools. The grants allow teachers to develop creative programs in literature and language, the arts, technology, social studies, science and math. Grants totaling over $14,000 were awarded in 2016 for creative and innovative programs and events.
Sponsoring the Trivia Bee is a great way to show your commitment to education. Sponsors can use their own trivia buffs or request a team from the schools and community to represent them. Neighborhood groups, local businesses, and non-profit community organizations are all welcome and encouraged to sponsor a team. For information about teams, please contact Maureen Johnson: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward to seeing you at the Trivia Bee on October 24, 2016.
