The Austintown Kiwanis Club had their trivia night in the Austintown Middle School’s cafetorium on April 27 to raise money for the group.
Different community members formed several teams that competed throughout the night. Teams included people of all ages, ranging from a team of veterans from the area to students in the high school’s Key Club.
Past president Mario Sallee said the night was a fun fundraiser to have a good time and support the club. In addition to this fundraiser, they also had a pancake breakfast in March to raise money for their group.
They will use the funding toward projects that help students. Sallee said that the group serves students and children, whether that means helping the schools or making donations to the township park.
The teams had ten questions per round and two minutes to answer them. Each round centered around a singular theme, such as breakfasts and “tool time.” A panel of judges, including president Diane Fry and trustee Ken Carano, scored the teams’ answers.
The club offered a veggie tray, cookie table and pizza, as well as numerous other treats from different members, for the teams. They also had a 50/50 raffle, which raised money for the group.
