What began as a fundraising event for the Glendora Public Library twenty-one years ago is now a community-loved tradition that promotes friendly competition to support the library. The Great Trivia Challenge 21 will take place on Saturday, March 23 at 5:00 pm at Azusa Pacific University in the Felix Event Center, 701 E. Foothill Blvd., Azusa. The Great Trivia Challenge is an exciting event in which teams, sponsored by local businesses and service organizations, compete against each other. Mr. Trivia, Thom Hill, asks a series of increasingly difficult trivia questions to determine a winner. The 2012 winning team was The Glendora Chamber sponsored by Athens Services.
Co-chairs Guilda Asmar and Bonnie Petralia along with their committee Debbie Deal, Greg & Judy Gillham, Tricia Gomer, Nancy Gorey, Blaine & Sin Yi Lambertson, Pat Loukota, Daryl Overlock, Chris Purkiss, and Pam Richards, have been busy making plans for this thrilling event. The evening’s festivities will begin at 5:00 pm with a lavish food buffet followed by the Trivia competition at 6:00 pm. Tickets are $15 and may be purchased at the Friends Plaza Book Loft, at the Check-Out Desk of the Glendora Library, 140 S. Glendora Ave. or at the door. All proceeds benefit the Glendora Public Library’s community education services, which includes adult literacy, new parent education, children and teen programs, cultural events and more.
This year the Great Trivia Challenge will be sponsored by Athens Services, Azusa Pacific University, Crestwood Communities, Suncraft Development, Woodglen Dental Center, La Dee Dah Party in a Box and the GPL Friends Foundation. Twenty five teams will compete this year, so come and cheer for your favorite!
