The Haverhill Foundation for Excellence in Education will hold its semi-annual Trivia Night on May 1 in the Galleria at Maria’s Family Restaurant, 81 Essex St.
Check-in begins at 6:30 p.m. The competition starts at 7 p.m. The entry fee is $25 per person. Teams of two to eight members are required to register and pay the entry fee in advance at www.HaverhillEducationFoundation.org or by calling 978-697-5620 for a registration form. First prize is $300, second prize is $100 and third prize is $50. A special Haverhill round offers a prize of $50.
At the last Trivia Night, teams responded to four rounds of general trivia questions and a special Haverhill Trivia bonus round, which included questions as “What business today sits in the original location of RH Macy’s first store?” (A1 Deli), and “What were the names of the three movie theaters in downtown Haverhill in the late ‘50s/early ‘60s?” (Paramount, Colonial, Strand).
The Last Trivia Night event raised nearly $4,000 to help support education in the Haverhill public schools. The foundation is an all-volunteer, nonprofit organization which supports programs and projects in the city’s public schools, the Haverhill High Model U.N. team, the Discovery Club after-school and summer program, and the Robotics program have received support from the foundation. This event is sponsored by Pentucket Bank, Haverhill Bank and the Haverhill Firefighters Union.
Additional sponsorship opportunities are available by contacting the foundation at email@example.com or 978-697-5620.
