Hardly Trivial: A Success!

Thank you! Because of your support, our second annual "Hardly Trivial" Trivia Fundraiser was a smashing success once again. Eleven teams tested their trivia knowledge at this fun team competition to win prizes and bragging rights. This event was open to anyone interested in having fun and supporting their Community Foundation.

Plus, participants helped to impact grant making at the CFMC, raising $7,857 between team registrations and sponsorships. Thanks to the $1-to-$1 match courtesy of a generous Lilly Endowment matching grant a total of $15,714 will benefit non-profit programming in Morgan County through arts and matching grants.

The "Wild Horses" Team from the Hoosier Wild Mustang & Burro Association took the tournament by storm for a second year in a row, claiming a $500 grand prize and bragging rights. The second place team, "My Big Fact Greek Trivia Team" received $250 in prize money, and the last place team, "Brainwave Surfers" won the prestigious Unicorn of Awesomeness Award for Adventures in Mediocrity. The CFMC also threw in a copy of the board game, "Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader." Not wanting anyone to go home empty handed, door prizes were also given out, along with three sets of books from one of the illustrious judges, Chadwick Gillenwater, aka, Professor Watermelon.

The Community Foundation of Morgan County would like to thank all of the event and round sponsors, and a big round of applause for the eleven teams who participated, the volunteers who dedicated their time and effort, and our three judges, Ruth Rusie, Cynthia Brewer and Chadwick Gillenwater.

The event would not have been as successful without your help and support! Stay tuned for next year's rematch where you can see if you have what it takes to go head-to-head with the best and brightest in Morgan County and Central Indiana.
