Grain Valley Assistance Council raised $3,000 last Saturday, November 9th through its popular Trivia Night held at Grain Valley High School. Approximately 24 teams participated in the event, with a team from Grain Valley South Middle School taking home bragging rights as the first place team. Funds raised from the event benefit the Assistance Council’s food pantry and emergency assistance programs.
Jerry Vaughan, Executive Director of the Grain Valley Education Foundation and Grain Valley Assistance Council volunteer, credits Debbi Reiss-Roam with bringing the idea for the Trivia Night fundraisers to Grain Valley more than 10 years ago.
“Debbi has been the driving force behind these events, which have raised thousands for the Grain Valley Assistance Council and FOCUS for Grain Valley,” Vaughan said.
The next Trivia Night benefiting Grain Valley Assistance Council will be held February 8, 2020 at Grain Valley High School.
