New York City Pub Trivia Comes to Cazenovia  for Forum Fundraiser

21 Aug
CAZENOVIA, NY – Supporters of the Cazenovia Forum will have the opportunity to demonstrate their trivia skills as part of a New York City style pub quiz fundraising event to support the long-running lecture series, to be held on Saturday, September 19 at 6:00pm at the Route 20 Sofa Company in Nelson.
Serving as quizmaster for the evening will be Tony Hightower, Executive Director of TriviaNYC, New York’s longest running and best-loved trivia event company, which performs regular live public trivia nights at bars and other venues throughout the city. During the nine years Hightower has been in the quiz business, he’s taken the organization from a once-a-week quiz night in a downtown dive bar to a national phenomenon, serving thousands of quizzers in all four corners of the continent and around the world.
Hightower himself is a nationally known trivia champion and impresario, having appeared as a contestant on Jeopardy!, Cash Cab and, just recently, Who Wants to be a Millionaire? He has written a weekly trivia column for Open Letters Monthly, as well as serving as the Marketing Director and Master of Ceremonies for the Trivia Championships of North America, held every summer in Las Vegas.
In addition to an evening of lively fun and quiz-team spirit, event-goers will be treated to delicious pub fare and locally produced spirits. Those interested in attending are encouraged to form their own teams of six to eight people. Individuals or couples may choose to attend as spectators or to be assigned to a team.
Seating is limited and tickets are available at $150 and $75, along with $50 for anyone age 40 and under, with proceeds going to support the Forum’s activities in bringing national and internationally known speakers to Cazenovia to present viewpoints on current events and issues. Information on how to purchase tickets is available by calling 315-264-1705.
“Anyone who has been to a pub quiz night in New York City knows how much fun it can be, and so we thought we’d bring a real trivia quizmaster from the Big Apple to Cazenovia so we can make it happen right here,” said Diane Clark, President of the Cazenovia Forum. “Get ready for a night of challenging quizzes, boisterous competition and a few surprises we are cooking up.”
