Castle Rock, CO, February 11, 2017 --(PR.com
)-- Excitement is building for the 13th Annual Trivia Night presented by Zonta Douglas County on April 8. Ed Greene, CBS4’s weather and news anchor, will again be the emcee for the fundraiser.
Zonta Douglas County hosts Trivia Night to raise funds for local and regional nonprofits and for a lucky student heading off to college. Teams of six adults compete in eight rounds of mind-bending trivia for cash prizes that range from $300 to $900 for the top three winning teams. A decadent dessert bar, beverages, door prizes, and opportunities to win great silent and live auction items also are included with team registration.
During the past 12 years, Zonta Douglas County has donated more than $85,000 to local charities, and gave more than $12,000 in scholarships to local high school seniors. Members also donated more than 900 hours of time to local nonprofits last year alone.
“We’re delighted to have Ed back to emcee our event,” says Rhonda Bolich-Lampo, Trivia Chair. “Our players enjoy him and the special touches he brings to our event. Our event is over half-full for teams so we encourage interested players to sign up soon.”
Greene is the senior member of Denver’s working media and has been a Denver TV Newscaster for nearly 40 years. He is a prominent figure at many local functions. “I feel a responsibility to give back,” he says. “The community has been good to me and in return, I donate my time so that local non-profit organizations can raise money and awareness for good causes.”
The annual Trivia event takes places at Kirk Hall at the Douglas County Fairgrounds and team registration is open until March 25 at www.zontadouglascounty.org.
