Trivia Night MS Fundraiser (Part 2)

If you missed Part 1 of my Trivia Night MS Fundraiser go here to read that too.  I shared photos of the decorations, food and raffles.  Today I'm sharing all the "people photos!"

I'm not going to tell you who all the people are in all of these photos b/c that would be boring!  But this is my mom and dad so I'll mention them since the are super supportive and helpful all of the time.  My mom helped me organize all of the raffle prizes and decorate for the event!  I'm so thankful for both of them and all of their support!

My mom sold raffle tickets at the event so I could go around and socialize and thank people from coming.  We made a lot of money on the raffles which was awesome!

This is team "Are You On Tinder" who tied for first place.  Then they had to participate in a tie breaker and lost.

This is team "3 Girls, A Guy and An Irish Pub" and they won!  It is actually kind of funny to me that they won b/c Derek is the pub owner.  I swear it wasn't fixed.  They were generous enough to give the prizes to the other team since Derek had donated them!  The prizes were pint glasses with different beer logos on them.

I love how in SO many of the above photos people look like they are really thinking about the answers.  It cracks me up how into it everyone was.  I didn't play but a lot of the questions seemed pretty hard to me!  The Trivia Guy did a really good job at making it really fun for everyone.  He had some great categories for trivia!

Julie (next to me in the black shirt) did the Challenge Walk last year with her teenage daughter and not only did they survive all those miles together but they liked it so much they are doing it again!

This is the tie breaker round.  Each of the first place teams had to pick a member to go up.  The category was "cereals" and each person had to say a cereal and first want not to know one lost. Well let's just say it went rather quickly (like one round).  I guess the pressure of 40 people staring at you makes it harder than it seems!  Lol!

I had Tyler pick the winners of each prize and then I read the name of the winner.  It was so fun to see who won each prize especially the most popular ones!

And this will not be know as the funniest photo I've seen in a LONG time.  I have no idea what Jenn was doing while waiting for us to get up there for the group photo but when I saw it on my camera the next day it gave me a good laugh!

My aunt was really helpful with getting some donations for the raffle baskets and donating the subs!  I'm so lucky to have so many family and friends willing to help me!  It makes hosting these events so much easier.

So I know you all want to know how much the event made. . . well the grand total after paying expenses was just over $700!!!!  Amazing right!?  I was pleasantly surprised!

I've had several people already asked if I'm doing it again next year so I think this might become an annual event!  Hoping to have an even bigger trivia night next year!  I think team "Are You On Tinder" will be back to try to claim the first place title.

My next fundraiser is a whiskey tasting with the Irish Whiskey Society.  More info to come!!!
