The event had 15 teams ranging from 5-8 members, raffle baskets donated by local businesses and residents, and decade-themed trivia.
Goslin said, “We are blown away by the success of this event since it was the first one back in person since 2019. We want to thank all of our sponsors, Tayler Shea and Shannon Fagan (Trivia Night co-chairs), our entire QVR Rotaract club, and our fantastic trivia teams; without them, this event would have never happened. We cannot wait until next year’s 10th Annual Trivia Night!”
