Trivia Night To Provide Serious Amount Of Fun

The BEF's first Trivia Night promises lots of laughs, prizes, food and games.

The Bethel Education Foundation’s very first Trivia Night will be held Friday, February 24th at 6:30 p.m. in the Willamette High School Cafeteria.

Tickets are $5 per person. There will be food, games, prizes, and lots of fun.

All the money raised goes back to Bethel classrooms in the form of grants for special educational projects, programs and opportunities.

Trivia Night works like this: each table of 6-8 team members will write down answers to questions presented by our co-hosts. There are 10 rounds of 10 questions per round, but teams will have only 30 seconds between questions. Between rounds there will be fun audience-participation games and prizes. At the end of the evening, the team with the most correct answers will win prizes.

Tickets are still available at all Bethel schools and will be available at the door, but space is limited. For more information, visit
