Last night at the St. Pauls United Church in Morden, Genesis House hosted a fundraising Quiz Night. It was a packed house and fun times were had by all. Questions ranged from easy to hard, pop culture to history, music mash-ups to a speed round where all answers contained "bill." To be victorious, you needed a team with a wide range of intellectual strengths which team "Huron Heroes" definitely had since they were the champions with a score of 101! It was a very close game, with the teams in second and third place only trailing by one and two points.
Ang Braun, the fantastic woman in charge of organizing this event, took the time to chat with us after the event wrapped up.
"We were looking for something different," Ang stated when asked about why they chose to host a Quiz night and admits, "I was a little anxious initially," when asked about what she thought the turnout would be. Obviously they had no reason to worry since she also shared, "We were turning people away the past two days."
Before the money raised had actually been counted, she guessed they raised around $3,500, which is more than has been raised in past events. With the success of the event, it's probable that there is going to be a second annual Quiz Night for Genesis House.
