TrivYa Night will be for April 13 at 6:30 p.m. at The Hotel at Kirkwood Center in Cedar Rapids. Teams, who decorate their table and dress in costume around a theme, of 10 compete to correctly answer questions ranging from local to national and pop culture to the obscure.
“We just really want people to have fun,” says Todd Hirst, Director of Marketing & Membership Development at the YMCA. “It’s really unique.”
The event maybe be a fundraiser — funds raised go to membership scholarships for children, families and individuals — but Hirst says the evening is anything but a formal black-tie fundraising event.
“It can get raucous,” he says.
The overall winning and losing team will receive a trophy. Other teams are eligible for other prizes. Past prizes have included a party bus rental, suites at the Rough Riders and Kernels, hotel stays and private jewelry parties.
Individual tickets are $60, but teams of 10 are encouraged to register. A table of 10 is $500. Tickets include appetizers. There is also a cash bar.
