Trivia Night – Behind the Scenes!

The Villa di Maria Trivia Night is coming soon! VdM friends and family will gather on February 29 for rounds of very challenging rounds of trivia and a silent auction to benefit the Fund for Villa di Maria.

In the spirit of leap year, the theme of the evening will be “One Extra Day”—parents, staff and friends will dress up their tables and themselves to represent their ideal extra day. It could be sleeping, reading, going to the beach… the options are endless. And while we can’t wait to see everyone’s ideal extra day unfold on February 29, we are just as excited to watch as preparations for the event get underway.

Our incredible team of parent volunteers, along with Community Coordinator Samantha Clarke, has been gathering in the elementary building to hash out the details of the event. The Villa Volunteers have been working hard to find the venue, come up with the trivia questions and solicit donations for the silent auction.

Some of their children are also in attendance, having their own meeting over pizza and juice.

Some of our students are also working hard behind the scenes. With the help of another parent volunteer, sound designer, producer and videographer Tim Gebauer, they’ve put together a video of questions and answers for the “Are You Smarter than a Montessori Child?” round on Trivia Night.

I won’t tell you what the questions are, but I will say Trivia Night participants should brush up on their geography, geometry, algebra and botany.

If you’d like to know more about what’s in store for the participants of Trivia Night, follow our instagram! On Mondays and Wednesdays, we’ll drop hints about the questions and silent auction items.

And for those who can’t make it to the event, there are other ways to participate. You can make a contribution to the fund any time through this webpage, or bid on silent auction items starting in February (we’ll let you know when that opens up on our social media platforms).

Thank you, thank you, thank you to our parent volunteers, staff and students for working so hard to create a super-fun event and to support Villa di Maria.
