On February 2, hundreds of people gathered at Variety Trivia Night, hosted by Young Variety. They enjoyed 10 rounds of trivia while also participating in various games, raffles and a silent auction.
The event was hosted in celebration and support of Variety Kids – the “MVPs” of Variety. In fact, some Variety Teens were in attendance that evening, playing trivia and also sharing how Variety has helped each of them. Variety Teen Nick was back to read questions for a round as well, with the help of guest emcee Mike Colombo, of Fox 2 and KPLR 11.
At the end of the night, Table 33 emerged victorious as first-time winners of Variety Trivia Night and Table 31 won “Best Theme" for their table that exemplified our "Who's Your MVP" theme. But we think all of our attendees were MVPs – thank you for coming out and helping Variety Kids!
We’d also like to thank Supporting Partner Enterprise Holdings and Bar Partner United Access for helping to make this event possible. And thank you to all of our Round Partners – ARCO Construction, Hollyberry, Kay-Bee Electric, Tueth Keeney, World Wide Technology, Sensi by Emerson, Cheree Berry and Safety National for your support, and to Imo's Pizza for providing a special pre-order option for our tables. Finally, thank you to the many people who helped the event go off without a hitch – from our Young Variety board to various staff and volunteers to Mike Colombo.
We hope to see everyone back next year – and maybe even some new faces! We’ll announce the date and theme towards the end of 2019.
