“What did George Costanza on Seinfeld do that he was forced to purchase a book by the bookstore?”
You are a couple points away from being the winning team, and it is the final round. No one in your group seems to know the answer to the question. The anxiety and adrenaline flows through your body. You feel excitement when the answer, “He took it to the bathroom,” appears on your mind and you quickly jot it down. The rounds are over and the points are tallied up. You win by a couple points, and each member of your team receives a free pair of KEEN shoes.
That’s what it was like for one of the 24 teams on August 14, 2013, a night in which seven of us KEEN Footwear “KEENterns” hosted a Trivia Night Fundraiser for Mercy Corps at Bar Bar — Mississippi Studios. Over 25 sponsors had donated over 40 prizes for the night, and Bar Bar owner Kevin Cradock had generously volunteered to donate 10% of the sales from the night to Mercy Corps.
When it was all said and done and a winning team had been crowned, a total of $2,350 had been raised. Thanks to everyone for coming out and having a good time with us! We hope to do it again soon.
