Trivia Buffs Help Raise Funds for Student Scholarships: Quiz Night 2021 Wrap Up

SYRCL’s annual scholarship fundraiser, Quiz Night, looked a little different different this year but we were still able to reunite virtually to tackle brain-scratching trivia thanks to the all-too-familiar Zoom. With your help, we raised funds for the Youth Environmentalist of the Year scholarship. Details

Quiz Night: Virtual Reunion

SYRCL’s annual Quiz Night scholarship fundraiser is back! Since 2002, we have been gathering as a community for a night of revelry to raise support for our community’s high school graduating seniors (with the exception of 2020). Each year, we award a $4,000 scholarship to support a local college-bound student on their path to becoming an environmental steward.  

This year’s Quiz Night provides an opportunity for a Virtual “Reunion” with SYRCL as well as family, friends, and old acquaintances. Create your own dream-team and join us for an evening of brain-scratching trivia, laughter, and the chance to win prizes.
