The Lyme-Old Lyme Education Foundation’s (LOLEF) first Annual Trivia Bee, originally planned for Nov. 2 but postponed due to Storm Sandy, has now been rescheduled for Friday, Jan. 25 at Lyme-Old Lyme Middle School.
Local businesses, community organizations and neighborhoods are invited to enter teams of four into this adult trivia contest, arguably the most “bee-dazzling fun-draiser” in The Lymes! Admission is free and all are welcome.
Each team will be given a list of trivia topics in advance of the Bee. Teams are encouraged (but not required!) to choose a fun team name and dress in costume. The evening will be hosted by LOLEF and Kevin Hogan of Channel 3 News will emcee.
The winning team from each round will participate in a championship round. Teams will compete for the Honey Cup, a perpetual trophy, as well as the honor of being Crowned Lyme-Old Lyme’s Trivia Bee Champion. Prizes will also be awarded for the best team name.
Spectators are encouraged to cheer on their favorite teams in person. Audience admission to the Bee is free.
Refreshments, local honey and tech-raffle tickets will be available for purchase.
The LOLEF supports innovative educational initiatives throughout our schools and community. Thanks to community support, the LOLEF has donated over $100,000 since its inception. During 2012, LOLEF awarded nearly $40,000 in funding to the Lyme-Old Lyme Public School system and Community Education.
The LOLEF counts on the success of fundraisers such as the Trivia Bee to keep the Foundations’ grants program vibrant.
Businesses and organizations are invited to enter a team of their own or, if they prefer, to sponsor a team made up of teachers and or students from our local schools.
If you would like to participate in the Bee or become a corporate sponsor, contact Nicole Wholean at 860- 434-6678. The registration fee is $200 per team. Click here to download a registration form.
