United Way of Thunder Bay’s GenNext is excited to announce the return of the 3rd Annual Let’s Get Quizzical. Test your knowledge, and join us on Friday, November 9th at the Sleeping Giant Brewing Company for a fun evening of trivia!
Let’s Get Quizzical will be focusing on the theme of ‘back in the day’ and / or ‘childhood memories’. We will have exciting rounds including 90’s & 2000’s Saturday Morning Cartoons, Popular Music, Childhood Games & Toys, and Disney. Through this event, we want to connect individuals to the vital work of United Way and express why supporting our community through GenNext and the work of United Way of Thunder Bay is important. It’s an opportunity for individuals to have fun, while giving them the chance to understand social issues in our community, as well as to provide an opportunity for them to be inspired to act upon, or in favour of, Thunder Bay’s future. We are promoting this event to businesses across the community as a fun networking, team building, and learning event.
NEW THIS YEAR: All proceeds raised from this event will be in support of the United Way of Thunder Bay’s Youth 4 Community Fundraising & Granting Initiative. From October – December each year, local high schools come together to host different fundraisers in each of their schools to raise money for the Youth 4 Community Initiative. These funds are reserved solely for youth programs, services, and projects that are carried out by local registered charitable organizations in Thunder Bay. The Youth 4 Community program works within the United Way Focus Area: “All that Kids Can Be” and agencies can use the funding to focus in one or more of the following youth priority areas: Recreation and Neighbourhood youth hubs; Anti-Racism and Discrimination and Youth Involvement/ Leadership. We are very happy to have the funds raised through the Let’s Get Quizzical event go towards this cause to help local youth in our community.
Prizes will be awarded for 1st, 2nd & 3rd place teams. There will also be individual prizes for each Lightening Round.
Each team has the right to access one cheat per round. All cheats cost $2
