Quiz Night in Chilliwack is always a treat

"It's the 10th anniversary of our Quiz Night," says Friends of the Library spokesperson about the event Oct. 25.

Excitement is building for the annual Quiz Night at the Chilliwack library on Friday, Oct. 25.

“It’s the 10th anniversary of our Quiz Night this year, which is a big thing,” said Claire Bouchard, president of Friends of the Library.

The Quiz Night is a popular fundraiser presented every fall by Friends of the Library, to help to pay for extras like equipment and furniture at both Chilliwack and Sardis library branches of the Fraser Valley Regional Library.

“Everybody likes to show off what they know,” Bouchard says. “Quiz night is always an entertaining community event with tons of laughter.”

Last year the event raised $1561 for the libraries.

A large team of volunteers, up to a dozen people, gets the Quiz Night to-do list done.

“A lot of work goes into it, and we couldn’t do it without our volunteers,” she said.

The trivia competition sees 14 or 15 teams of eight people each, answering five questions in 10 different trivia categories.

The coveted prize for the winner is always the Smarty Pants Award, and organizers call it a night of “guaranteed fun.”

Every participant walks away with a book as a door prize, and there are also fabulous gift basket draws, with $5 for 10 tickets.

Quiz Night, Oct. 25, 7 p.m. tickets at the Chilliwack library for $13 each. 604-792-1941.
