Quiz for a Cause – Additional Cash Prize!
June 18 @ 7:30 PM - 10:00 PM
Attention Geeks! We’ll be hosting a special edition of our weekly Tuesday Trivia Night on Tuesday June 18th! The Alzheimers Association will be partnering with Geeks Who Drink – Rochester and collecting an (optional) entry fee for quizzing, part of the cash pot will be going to the charity, while the other part goes to the winning team!

“Quiz For a Cause is Geeks Who Drink’s standing offer to nonprofits to use our quiz as a tool for fundraising and community outreach.”
A quick explanation on how a pub quiz actually raises funds. It’s simple: quiz participants pay an entry fee that is determined in advance by the nonprofit. One entry fee per team goes into a cash purse for the winners; the rest goes to the cause at hand.
Some hypothetical math: say there’s 20 teams of six players, each paying $10 a head; that’s $1200. Of that, $200 goes to the winning team and the rest to the cause…”
