Redeemer Classical School is putting a unique twist on trivia night. Drawing inspiration from a popular television game show, Are you smarter than a (Redeemer) 5th grader? will feature questions that come directly from the school’s Kindergarten through fifth grade curriculum.
“We’re really excited for this event,” says Ron Hoch, Head of School. “It allows us to highlight our distinctive curriculum in a fun way. On top of that, it gives our guests the opportunity to enjoy a night out with friends, to partake in good food and drink, and to support a great cause. It should be a lot of fun.”
Teams of six will compete head to head for one of two prize packages that include gift certificates and vouchers from local businesses. There will be four rounds of questions and a bonus round with a total of 17 questions that get progressively more difficult. Teams will have the option to buy answers during designated rounds if they get stumped or to improve their chances. All of the proceeds will go to support Redeemer Classical School’s tuition assistance program, which awarded over $139,000 in aid this school year, making it possible for families from all walks of life to attend Redeemer.
Media teams compete for the Invicta Cup
To add another level of entertainment and competition, three special teams have been invited to participate and vie for The Invicta Cup. This year’s featured teams will strive to see which media reigns; WHSV will represent television, The Daily News Record print, and Harrisonburg Radio Group the airwaves. “Our goal is to highlight a different sector of businesses each year as a way of upping the level of intrigue and bringing new people to the event. This year it’s media outlets. Next year it might be realtors or lawyers. We’ll have to see,” says Hoch.
The trivia night will be held on Friday, September 27th from 6-9pm at Hotel Madison. Heavy appetizers and drinks will be provided. Attire is business casual.
