An upcoming fundraiser will answer some of the most trivial questions.
To help the Westborough public schools address needs.
The Westborough Education Foundation's fifth Trivia Bee is at 6:30 p.m. Monday at the Doubletree by Hilton Hotel. Admission is $5, with a $15 family cap, which covers pizza, dessert and a beverage, board member Linda Townsend said Thursday. Additional refreshments, as well as raffles, will be available as well.
The event typically raises about $15,000, which the foundation disperses during its grant cycle, which starts in January, Townsend said. Grants are awarded in early spring. Team sponsorships contribute to the $15,000, Townsend said.
The trivia bee is the foundation's first since 2010, Townsend said. A scheduling conflict with Westborough's fall 2011 special town meeting kept the bee from happening last year.
Monday night's event will involve 36 three-player teams answering six rounds of questions asked by Joe Harrington, Townsend said. Each round's winner will compete in the final round.
The fundraiser will add a kid-friendly facet this year, Townsend said.
Fales Elementary School physical education teacher Matthew Travis will ask kids trivia questions between rounds.
