ANE Trivia Night For Kelda

ANE holds a trivia night each year with the proceeds going to a charitable cause. This year's event in support of Kelda Farrell will take place at Boston Pizza Stavanger Drive on Sunday January 25 starting 7pm sharp. Entry fee is $10 per person, collected at the door.

The format sees teams of 6 people given sets of questions, with prizes for the top team on each set as well as for the overall winning team. Answers are given on paper by the team as a group so no one individual or team will be put on the spot! Questions include audio and visual categories and cover a wide range of topics, not just running! Tickets on a door prize and a 50/50 draw will be sold throughout the evening.

CLICK HERE to register and if you don't have a full team, no worries, you will be matched up with others to form a team. Plan your evening out to have a few laughs, a beverage, and a snack or meal while supporting a great cause!
