St. Martha’s Trivia Night Benefits Students in Sudan

St. Martha’s Trivia Night Benefits Students in Sudan

 

2013 marks the 10th anniversary of St. Martha’s annual Basket Raffle and Trivia Contest. Members of the congregation put together thematic baskets that people can buy raffle tickets on.  Approximately 110 persons participated in this year’s thematic raffle and trivia contest.    Baskets have had a wide range of themes.  We have had doggy baskets, book baskets, Irish coffee baskets, martini baskets, chocolate and coffee baskets, along with many Christmas and Thanksgiving baskets. This year there were 40+ baskets that covered a wide range of themes. All proceeds from the sale of raffle tickets go to help us fund our Sudanese Children Education Fund. This year just over $1,600 were raised for this outreach.

 

St. Martha’s trivia contest is open to the congregation’s family and friends, and the congregation takes great pride in this ecumenical gathering.  Not only are there Episcopalians participating in the trivia contest but Roman Catholic, Lutheran, Baptist, Methodist and Jewish friends. This event has become a fun evening that brings many different religious traditions together.  Trivia questions are written by St. Martha’s member Jerry Hall. He follows the categories similar to Trivial Pursuit, however, there are often special categories like The Presidents & First Ladies, All Things Biblical & Name the Saint & Academy Award-Winning Movies.

 

In the pictures below you will find two groups photographed. The first group is the St. Martha’s winners (Bishop Barker pictured). The second group is a group who has been participating from the very beginning: the Walnut Hill Boys Club (along with female friends!)  The St. Martha’s winners have their picture displayed in the narthex of the church until the next trivia contest.  The St. Martha winner members are The Drew Family and friends.
