Virtual Team Trivia Night Challenges Families’ Holiday Knowledge on Dec. 10

How many sizes does the Grinch’s heart grow “In the Grinch Who Stole Christmas?”

Join other families from Northern Nevada on Thursday, Dec. 10 as they test their holiday trivia knowledge in a Virtual Team Trivia Night Challenge from the comfort of their living room.

Prizes will be awarded to the top two teams. Come up short in the team contest, you can still win raffle prizes and enjoy the interaction with other families in the region — all while staying at home to protect Nevada.

Proceeds will benefit WNC’s emergency fund, which allows WNC Foundation to help students and faculty who are facing challenges brought on by measures taken to stop the spread of COVID-19.

Your host for the evening will be Nevada System of Higher Education Vice Chancellor for Community Colleges Nate Mackinnon, who will entertain and challenge your team to come up with answers to questions. By the way, he might even tell you that the Grinch’s heart grew three sizes when he learned the true meaning of Christmas.

All ages are welcome in this family-oriented contest! The cost is $30 per team; $50 for a team and 20 raffle tickets; $100 for a team and 30 raffle tickets along with WNC winter beanies; or $350 for a team, 50 raffle tickets, eight WNC beanies, eight drink tumblers and a recognition letter and appreciation certificate from WNC President Dr. Vincent Solis.

Sold separately, raffle tickets are $5 and WNC beanies are $20.

Only 30 teams can participate so sign up today. On the night of the contest you will be able to join the contest via phone, laptop or iPad using Zoom technology. Instructions will be sent to you following registration.
