So many teams have signed up for the first annual “Cheshire Trivia Challenge,” that the event scheduled for Saturday night March 3rd at the Cheshire Parks and Recreation Center has sold out. Twenty-five teams of four people each will match wits to win prizes, while helping the Cheshire Education Foundation raise money that will fund scholarships and learning enhancements for students in the Cheshire Public Schools.

“We are excited by the enthusiastic support from our community for this fun event,” said CEF board chair Jane Leukart. “We had to close registration more than a week in advance when we hit our 25-team limit.” With team names such as “The Periodic Table Dancers,” “Figgy Pudding,” “Your Lion Eyes,” and from New Leaf Family Dental, “The Square Root Canals,” it is apparent that the first Cheshire Trivia Challenge will be a night of light-hearted fun.

Providing assistance at the March 3rd fundraiser will be student members of the National Honor Society at Cheshire High School, as well as CEF board members. Board chair Jane Leukart also extended her thanks to Superintendent of Schools Jeff Solan for his encouragement and support in spreading the word about the trivia challenge.

CEF board member Dennis Deninger will be the quizmaster for the evening. “Whenever you plan an event for the first time there is that fear that maybe no one will show up,” he said. “But our entire board is delighted that so many people have signed up to play trivia with us.” The Cheshire Education Foundation will start planning for next year’s event as soon as the first Cheshire Trivia Challenge is over.

The Cheshire Education Foundation has been raising private funds to enhance the programs and offerings of the Cheshire Public Schools since 1995.
