The Bee is Back! The Westborough Education Foundation hosts its SEVENTH Annual Trivia Bee on at the DoubleTree Hotel in Westborough. Teams of three will compete in a fun-filled evening of trivia on topics including New England sports, popular culture, government, science, arts and literature, and Westborough history. The winning team will be given community bragging rights and a trophy. As always, teams are very much encouraged to let their personalities show and dress in costume to vie for the “Best Spirit” and “Best Costume” awards.
A donation of $5 per individual or $20 per family includes admission, pizza, drink and dessert. The fun-filled night features music, 50/50 raffle and a silent auction, featuring sporting event tickets can be won. Speaking of kids, be sure to bring them – there is no school the following day! Matt Travis of Athletic Revolution will lead kids’ games and activities in between trivia rounds.
Proceeds from the event fund a variety of grants to teachers and staff across all of the Westborough schools. The grants allow teachers to develop creative programs in literature and language, the arts, technology, social studies, science and math. The Trivia Bee is the foundation’s largest fundraising effort and brings together many groups from the community for a highly spirited competition.Add a comment
