Team Trivia Challenge! Sep 28, 2022
In support of Literacy Matters Abbotsford

About this event

Literacy is important to all British Columbians. Whether it’s a child getting an early start, an adult looking to upgrade skills to go back to school or find a new job, when we make literacy a priority, good things happen: we create jobs, improve health, and reduce crime. Raise-a-Reader helps children and families across BC develop literacy skills needed to succeed at home, school and in the community. As part of the "Raise a Reader" and "Literacy is Life" campaigns, all proceeds from the trivia challenge will stay in Abbotsford to support literacy in our community. "Raise a Reader" funds are matched by the provincial government. Please join in and support literacy projects and programs in our community.

Our theme this year is “SUPER HEROES”. Create a costume, gather a team (up to 6 people), pick a team name and brush up on your trivia. Please register and pay by noon on September 18th. You are ready to go.
