Whatcom Literacy Council New Date for 2020 TRIVIA BEE & Silent Auction

The Whatcom Literacy Council will be hosting the 24th Annual TRIVIA BEE & Silent Auction 6 p.m. to 9 pm on Friday, November 14th, 2020 at Bellingham Technical College’s Settlemyer Hall in Campus Center.

This new date was chosen in response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) health directives set this month restricting events for large numbers of people. We are hoping that by October 2, the health crisis will be over. All current sponsors and teams that have already registered will be honored at the event on the new date.

Join co-hosts Scotty VanDryver of KAFE Radio and Jeopardy! star Ken Jennings and match wits with other members of the community. 32 teams, sponsored by local businesses, will compete against each other in four qualifying rounds leading up to the final round with eight teams. The winner goes home with the traveling “Totten Trophy.” There is an award for the best CHEER section of the audience.

The evening begins with a silent auction at 6 p.m., with items donated by local businesses, and the Trivia Bee competition starts promptly at 7 p.m. This year there will be a cash bar with beer and wine, as well as cookies, coffee and slices of pizza available for donation.

All proceeds go to support the Whatcom Literacy Council’s free literacy programs for adults here in Whatcom County.

Teams of three may register by emailing ($750 for a Corporate Team, $375 for a Self-Sponsored team.) CHEER tickets cost $15 per person, and will be available at Village Books, or at the door.

The Whatcom Literacy Council is a non-profit local organization dedicated to empowering adults to achieve their goals and improve their lives through literacy.

        We acknowledge that Whatcom County is located on the unceded territory of the Coast Salish Peoples. They cared for the lands that included what we’d call the Puget Sound region, Vancouver Island and British Columbia since time immemorial. This gives us the great obligation and opportunity to learn how to care for our surrounding areas and all the natural and human resources we require to live. We express our deepest respect and gratitude for our indigenous neighbors, the Lummi Nation and Nooksack Tribe, for their enduring care and protection of our shared lands and waterways.
