Who Wants to Be the Smartest Disciple? A Trivia Night to Benefit the National Benevolent Association

A trivia night is a large group event to benefit a charitable cause or organization, in this case the National Benevolent Association (NBA)! During a trivia night, a master of ceremonies reads trivia questions split up into different categories or rounds (like movies, history, or the birthdays of Muppets, for example). The questions are then answered by different teams ranging from 2-8 people each. Your team fee will be a direct contribution to the ministries of NBA. At the end of each round, a representative from each team turns in its answers to a panel of judges, who then calculate the scores for each team. The teams compete against one another, with the top two or three teams receiving prizes. Trivia will consist of general knowledge, with a special round focused on Disciples and NBA trivia.

How Much: $75 per team (up to 5 people); $120 per team (6-8 people)
