Think you and your friends know a lot? Test your knowledge on March 15 at the Kiwanis Quiz Night Fundraiser.

Penticton Kiwanis are holding a fundraiser for the OSNS Child and Youth Development Centre. Teams of up to four will compete to answer 100 questions on a wide array of subjects. The event begins at 7 p.m. at St. Saviour’s Anglican Church (150 Orchard Ave.) with the teams put through 10 rounds consisting of 10 questions each. Team members will consult with each other and record their answer on a an answer sheet.

Organizer Doug Button was one of the original creators of a similar event in Kamloops and brought the fundraiser with him to Penticton when he moved. He said the aim is to reach around 20 teams, and they are about halfway there. Registration is open up until the quiz begins, although pre-registration is available and the only way to guarantee a spot for your team.

Entrance into the quiz is by donation. The $100 per team registration fee will go to the OSNS Child and Youth Development Centre. The top three teams will receive prizes donated by local businesses. Third place will receive wine for the whole team courtesy of area wineries. Second will receive two greens passes from local golf courses. The first place prize is $400 in cash, donated by Providence Funeral Home.

To register a team contact Button at 250-497-2910 or by email at dougabutton@gmail.com.
