The 60 guests in attendance enjoyed an extensive appetizer buffet and drinks at Bokampers Sports Bar & Grill in Naples. Participants then formed teams and competed for prizes, showcasing their intelligence in a variety of categories, including arts and entertainment, sports, science and nature, geography, history and riddles.

Proceeds from Trivia Nite, the first in a series of fundraising events this season, support an essential program that pairs volunteer advocates with abused, neglected and abandoned children in Southwest Florida. More than one-third of local children in crisis do not yet have a volunteer advocate to offer a voice in the courtroom, schools and child welfare system.
