Come and Cheer at the 16th Annual Adult Trivia Bee

Come and Cheer! 40 teams will be competing in the 16thAnnual Melrose Adult Trivia Bee at 7pm this Saturday, March 25, 2017 at Memorial Hall. At this very popular city-wide event, citizens, city officials, business owners, teachers, school PTOs, club members and non-profit leaders compete on teams to discover which group knows the greatest amount of obscure and non-essential information. Even if you aren’t on a team you’ll have the opportunity to participate in a table Trivia for a small donation. This year’s Trivia Bee is sponsored by East Boston Savings Bank and Melrose-Wakefield Hospital, a member of Hallmark Health.

Admission is free and light refreshments are sold at the event, including beer & wine and select items from Wood & Fire Restaurant! You can buy raffle tickets for a chance to win many exciting raffle items including: Red Sox game tickets and amazing sports memorabilia; museum and theater tickets; a Keurig Brewer; a handcrafted quilt; a private wine class and a Cape Cod Weekend, just to name a few! Additionally, each table will feature 3-D art created by Melrose High School students in grades 9-12. The Trivia Bee is held annually as a fundraiser for The Bridge: A School/Community Partnership.

“The Trivia Bee is not your average fundraiser,” said Jennifer McAllister, Coordinator of Volunteers at The Bridge: A School/Community Partnership. “This event generates a lot of excitement in the community with 40 competing teams, local television coverage, and hundreds of spectators.”

The Bridge: A School Community Partnership is a unique non-profit organization that recruits trains and places volunteers in the Melrose Public Schools. Established in 1993, The Bridge mission is based on the philosophy that young people benefit greatly when community members contribute their time, talent and expertise to assist public education.
