Six two-person teams to match brainpower in benefit Trivia Bee

By Maureen Robertson

Six two-person teams will see who knows the most as they compete in the Friends of Ramona Library Trivia Bee on Saturday evening.

“If you like trivia and TV shows like ‘Jeopardy,’ you’ll enjoy a great evening while assisting the library,” said Racheal Gilmore, Friends of Ramona Library member coordinating the event.

The Trivia Bee will be in the Ramona Library Community Room, 1275 Main St. In addition to the teams matching their brain power, the event will feature a catered buffet and wine tasting from 6 to 7 p.m. Four Ramona vintners will offer their wines for tasting. Music will be provided by Ramona saxophonist Frank Lucio.

A dozen opportunity baskets ranging in value from $150 to $200 will be given away, and six silent auction items valued from $70 to $500 will go to the highest bidders.

Tickets are $25 each and are available in advance at the Ramona Chamber of Commerce office, 960 Main St., and the Friends of Ramona Library Bookstore in the library. Tickets also will be available at the door.

All proceeds will benefit the library.

About 40 businesses have donated items or certificates for the baskets and silent auction, said Gilmore.

Trivia Bee fun will start at 7 p.m. Ramonans expert in specific fields prepared the questions. Among categories are art/museum, books/libraries, animals, history, food/wine, sports, theater and finances. Questions will range from easy to challenging.

The winning team will be named on the perpetual trophy that will be displayed in the library.

Gilmore invites the community to “Come join us for a delightful evening.” This is the first trivia bee the Friends group has held and members are looking forward to a fun time.

The two-person teams are representing the San Vicente Valley Club, Ramona Rotary Club, Kiwanis of Ramona, Robb Family (mother-son team), Ramona Journal and Ramona Concert Association, said Gilmore.
