We mentioned it briefly in this week’s Pencil It In, but figured it bears repeating since it combines two things we love: charity and trivia. This Thursday, the Rotaract Club Shanghai and Hilton Shanghai are hosting a World Trivia Night with 100% of the proceeds going to various local charities.
World Trivia Night 2009 is an “event filled with dinner, games, raffles, auctions, and a variety of prizes for local English-speakers who want to show how much they really know.” To get in on all this fun, you need to find a table of between 8 to 11 people with encyclopedic knowledge of world events (assuming you want to win). Tickets are 388RMB per person.
The money collected will be donated to aid projects such as the Hilton’s Christmas Train Charity for Shanghai Sunrise, ORBIS (blindness prevention and treatment) and the Rotaract Club of Shanghai’s efforts to improve the lives of migrant workers.
The guys organizing the event assure us that there are still tables open, so if a Thursday night saving the world with your smarts sounds ideal, shoot them an email at quiznightticketing (at) gmail (dot) com or call Jacob Dobbs at 15921223663.
