What is Trivia Night?

Each year, Community School alternates the fundraiser between Cornucopia Dinner & Auction and Trivia Night.  While Trivia Night raises funds for our school, it is meant to be a fun, friendly evening where parents can mingle and get to know each other. 


Is there going to be a Silent Auction? How about the Sign-Up Parties (hey. . .what are Sign-Up Parties)?


Yes to both! There will be a Silent Auction and fun Sign-Up Parties.  Sign-Up Parties are parties organized and sponsored by Community School families. These are open to all CS families - just buy tickets (ticket sales benefit Community School)!  When you arrive at Trivia Night look for the Sign-Up Party section because some parties fill up fast!  There will be adult-only parties and kid-friendly parties.  

Will there be a raffle and other games?

Of course!  A Trivia Night is not complete without a raffle and games!  You will be able to buy raffle tickets online and at the event.  This year's raffle is The Great Outdoors.  You buy a ticket on behalf of a faculty/staff member for them to win a weekend getaway at Innsbrook!  We also have D-A-S-H, which is a game that kicks off the evening.  There are four poster boards in the CAC, each board has 25 numbers ranging from 1-100.  Guests "DASH" up to the boards and write their names by a number.  The number you pick equals the amount you agree to donate and you are then entered into a drawing.  The D-A-S-H game raises $5,000 to kick off the evening!

What time should I arrive?

Doors open at 5:30 p.m.

Trivia will begin at 6:30 p.m.

*You will want to arrive as early as possible to sign up for Sign-Up Parties, bid on Silent Auction items and decorate your table!

Is food and drink provided?

Nope!  No food or beverages are provided.  This event is BYOF (Bring Your Own Food), BYOD (Bring Your Own Drinks - Yes! Alcohol is allowed as long as you drink responsibly).  Work with your tablemates to make sure your evening is full of good eats and drinks!  

Do I need to dress up and decorate my table?

Costumes and table decorations are encouraged but not required.  In 2017, Trivia Night attendees were all decked out in 80's gear to fit the theme and there were not many guests who came out of costume.  There will be a prize for Best Costume and Best Decorated Table! However, this is a casual affair so please feel free to come in your favorite jeans!

Do I need to have a Table of 10?

No!  Please don’t worry if you buy tickets without a full table.  We will find some wonderful Community School families to sit you with! We will do our best to accommodate all seating requests.  


How do I purchase tickets?

Visit and click “Purchase Tickets.”  Enter any applicable promo codes before checking out.  To make the checkout process easy, we require everyone register a credit card to use at checkout.


Do I need to attend to bid on items?

No, you can bid online at home.  Visit and click “Register Now” then click “ Can’t Attend? Click Here.”  NOTE: you will have to enter your credit card information in order to bid.  Your card will be charged automatically if you have the winning bid.  The online bidding closes at 3:00 p.m. March 9th and will reopen in paper form at Trivia Night - so if you really want an item, you should try to attend Trivia Night!
