Women's History Month Trivia Night is a opportunity to acknowledge and celebrate the contributions of women in politics, science, arts, and culture. Each year our team of organizers host a trivia night in March in recognition of Women's History Month. All proceeds from this year's event will benefit Ujima: The National Center on Violence Against Women in the Black Community.
Here's how it works:
1) Get five friends, co-workers, or relatives together and register your team by clicking the "Register Now" button at the bottom of any page. 2) Arrive on Thursday, March 5 before 5:30pm for music, food, and sample trivia questions. 3) That's it! It's just that simple. Upon arrival each team will get a copy of the rules, score sheets, and information on purchasing "Doras"- stickers used to substitute for challenging questions (teams can purchase up to five).
Here are the abbreviated rules:
There will be four (4) rounds, each consisting of ten (10) questions. Each correct answer is worth one point. The table with the most points after four rounds wins.
Judges’ answers will be final.
Each question will be read twice.
No reference materials will be permitted (including phones).
Scores will be updated at the end of each round.
Answers should be as specific as possible.
Fun is mandatory.

Frequently Asked Questions- FAQ
How do I form a team?
You can form a team in different ways. Talk to your friends, coworkers, and family about putting together a team of five. If you don’t have the connections to form a team, come as an individual, and we can add you to a team.
Can I have more than five people on my team?
Unfortunately, no. However, if we reach capacity (75 people), then we will allow teams to add an additional person.
How do I register a team?
To register a team, go to our "How?" page and click on the button that says “Buy Now”. Fill in your information. Paypal accepts all major credit cards. If you prefer not pay through Paypal, but wish to reserve a spot, please see other payment methods on our "How?" page or send an email to email@example.com.
Does all the money go to Ujima?
Art Alive Movement is paying all the expenses. All funds received go directly to Ujima and their work to end violence against women in the Black community.
Is my ticket price tax deductible?
The IRS stipulates that the amount deductible is only that which exceeds the fair market value of the benefits received (IRS Topic 506). Since prizes are awarded to our first place team, the ticket cost is not tax deductible. However, any amount donated above the entrance fee will be tax deductible. Please ask for a receipt with any donation given.
Will there be food available?
Busboys and Poets has a full menu from which to choose. You can find the menu at https://www.busboysandpoets.com/menu/lunch-dinner-menu/. You can also find their happy hour drink menu at https://www.busboysandpoets.com/menu/happy-hour-menu/.
Can I pay by credit card at the event?
Yes. Onsite registration, drinks, and Dora's (to help answer questions) can all be purchased using credit cards. However, feel free to also bring your check book and cash.
