There’s no place like — QUIZ NIGHT!
This year’s theme is the Wizard of Oz. Dust off your ruby red slippers, grab your oil can and some extra straw, and follow the yellow brick road to the Peace Lutheran Church on Friday, March 9 for the animated and hilarious Quiz Night! It’s time to summon your courage, gather your teammates and don your thinking caps in anticipation of SYRCL’s annual Brains of Nevada County event!
Enjoy an evening of friendly competition to help raise funds for the Environmentalist of the Year Scholarship Fund. For the past sixteen years, SYRCL has been proud to offer a four-year college scholarship to a graduating high school senior who has demonstrated a commitment to the environment. Since 2002, sixteen $4,000 scholarships have been awarded.
Space fills quickly. To secure your table, register today! Teams are made up of eight participants and the buy-in is $400 per table.
Prizes are bestowed upon the highest and lowest scorers, as well as the most spirited team. And, players are encouraged to dress to impress in theme! Check out the photos from last year’s event below.
SYRCL will provide heavy hors d’oeuvres. *New this year* we will have a silent dessert auction. Beer, wine, coffee, tea and soda will be available for purchase. Please note: no outside alcohol is permitted.
