Anyone who has won their fair share of pie wedges –– and pink ones in particular –– from the Trivial Pursuit board game may want to head to Vernon’s Elks Lodge Saturday.

Clarence Fulton Secondary School is hosting a trivia night as a fundraiser to purchase a modified bicycle for children with special needs.

“We challenge business teams, school teams, parent teams, and even teenager teams to come out for an evening of fun. Come on your own, as a couple, as friends, or make your our team (up to six people); just come out for some fun,” said LeRae Stephenson, Fulton resource room teacher.

Participants will be tested in answering easy to more challenging questions. Categories include TV, movies, travel, Vancouver 2010, history, sports, Canada, literature, health and science, as well as a potpourri miscellaneous category.

Two rounds will also revolve around music.

“If you don’t have the answer maybe your team member will. It will be lots of laughs, great discussions, and fond memories (should) come rolling back in a relaxing atmosphere,” said Stephenson.

Door prizes, a silent auction and a raffle will also be part of the event.

Tickets are $15 each and can be purchased at the Fulton office, 250-545-1348, or at the door to the Elks Lodge, 3101-30th St. downtown Vernon. The event starts at 7 p.m. Saturday.
