WRSAW — Tri Kappa Trivia Night 2023 — the third in a yearly series — was a lively evening that ended in a tie between the 2021 and 2022 Tri Kappa Trivia champions, the Graybeards from Warsaw and Wawasee schools, and an upstart challenge from Lake City Bank.
Held on Saturday evening, November 4, at the Roost at Creighton’s Crazy Egg Café in Warsaw, the event drew a sellout crowd of nearly 150 players. Trivia questions ranged across multiple topic areas including movies, sports and geography. The event also featured great food, a 50/50 raffle and games. Proceeds from the Tri Kappa fundraiser benefit community organizations and fund scholarships for area students.
