21st Annual Project READ Trivia Bee – The Reality Show to Beat All Reality Shows!
Redwood City, CA - October 13, 2010 - Why waste time watching those phony reality shows? Get a dose of real life entertainment at Redwood City Project READ’s 21st Annual Trivia Bee benefit for Project READ! It takes place on Friday, October 15, 2010 beginning at 6:30 p.m. at Cañada College, 4200 Farm Hill Boulevard in Redwood City.
The Trivia Bee is a chance to see REAL people competing to prove they’re experts of trivial information, while vying for the coveted title of Trivia BEE Champions of Redwood City as hundreds of spectators cheer, sneer, and root them on. In addition to the fierce competition, this will be an hors d’oeuvre and dessert extravaganza featuring music, friends, and terrific fun! The Trivia BEE is Project READ’s annual, raucously rowdy event that raises funds to help this non-profitprovide weekly literacy services to over 500 adults and children who work side by side with volunteer tutors in the pursuit of improving their basic reading and writing skills. Nationally recognized, award winning, and built on a tradition of innovative success, Project READ is a treasure to be celebrated, and participating in the Trivia BEE is the perfect way to provide this program with the support it needs.
Teams of self-described “Trivia Masters” will compete for the title by exercising their knowledge — which ranges from the esoteric to the utterly useless — on topics of interest to almost everyone: literature, science, history, sports, television, movies, music, and general entertainment.
Companies and individuals may register to participate as a team or event sponsor. Team sponsorship at several levels and prices are still available. And of course spectators play a big role in the Trivia BEE.
