Making Democracy Work

Let's Get Quizzical Fundraiser


Thanks to all who attended, supported and volunteered to make our first trivia fundraiser (emphasis on FUN!) so successful. Special thanks to our fantastic guest MC, Tim Boyum, Spectrum News anchor and host of "Capital Tonight" as well as the event co-chairs Pat McDaniels, Karen Eldridge and Kathy Wright.

Winning teams and lucky participants enjoyed a variety of prizes including donations from the Nasher Museum Café, Joe Van Gogh Coffee, Tomato Jakes, International Minute Press and Mary Kay Cosmetics. Congratulations to the winners:

  • 1st place: Environmental Warriors
  • 2nd place: The Fairmappers
  • 3rd place: Queen Warriors
  • Best Team Name (along with great hats and pins) Award: The Fairmappers
  • Team Spirit Award: LOL (Ladies of the League)

A fun afternoon was had by all, with trivia questions provided by all the action teams, League history provided by national past president Carolyn Jefferson-Jenkins and in honor of March Madness, a special basketball category provided by League member Bill Whichard.

If you missed the March 11 event, it's not too late to test your knowledge: download the Trivia Questions and Answer Key and then make plans to join us NEXT year! It's also not too late to make a DONATION! The proceeds from Let's Get Quizzical support the LWVODC Education Fund, which in turn will provide programming resources to the chapter action teams.
