Quiz Bowl Tuesday To Benefit Warsaw Education Foundation

Times Union – The Warsaw Education Foundation, a not-for-profit organization that champions academic innovation and excellence in Warsaw Community Schools, is hosting the Annual Community Quiz Bowl fund-raiser Tuesday.
It is from 7 to 9 p.m. in the Warsaw Community High School Tiger Den. There will be 49 teams from area businesses and organizations who have registered to compete in the Quiz Bowl.
Each five-person team will cooperatively formulate one answer to each question from this year’s Quiz Bowl categories: Academics, 2014 Year In Review, Presidential History and Luck of the Irish.
Lake City Bank will sponsor “halftime” refreshments, and Maple Leaf Farms is the Valedictorian Level sponsor. Honor Roll level sponsors include Biomet, Louis Dreyfus, Esther Pfleiderer Charitable Trust, Warsaw Morning Optimist Club, and Todd and Pam Weingart.
All attendees at this year’s Quiz Bowl will have an opportunity to support WEF.  Individual donations will be solicited for one Red Apple Grant request, math materials for first-graders at Madison Elementary School. Visit www.warsaweducationfoundation.org to donate to this challenge.
