Trivia Event a Success & Inspiration!


New grad (and mother of 5!) Desire Barb shared her incredible story. Tutors Brian Burtch and Maya Malhotra discussed their experiences as volunteers with Seeds. (Watch all 3 interviews below.)

And of course — the main event: Trivia Time! More than 30 participants competed for cash prizes during 3 rounds of Kahoot trivia. Round 1 went to Bryan Javorek, Round 2 Mark Yanochko. Round 3 was for all the marbles and by far the hardest – won by Brooke Emmel!

Players from Community West Foundation didn’t even place, but their team donated back as though they did! THANK YOU, COMMUNITY WEST!

Also deserving a round of applause, every one of our GENEROUS SPONSORS who made this event free for participants.

We raised approximately $70,000 for Adult Literacy!

This event was presented free of charge thanks to our generous sponsors.
