LTDO Trivia Night July 31!

Please join us on Friday, July 31 from 8:00-9:00 p.m. for LTDO’s next Trivia Night Fundraiser. The event will be hosted on Zoom by LTDO member Urzula Urzua.

Did you miss our first Trivia Night?  You missed a great time! We are going to be playing via Zoom1, so be camera ready (or wear a mask)!!  Help LTDO raise funds for rent, printing, and postage.  Every little bit helps.

You may enter for any donation amount. Winners will receive Democratic-themed protective hand-sewn masks.

The event will go live at 8:00 p.m., and there will be a new round of trivia about every 15 minutes. Feel free to join any game. Our host will also serve as scorekeeper and referee.

The host will email you a Zoom invitation once your donation is processed.

All proceeds will go to support LTDO programs. We look forward to seeing you there!


1We played via Facebook last time, and some of us were watching answers pop up before the video caught up with the questions. It was like Johnny Carson’s Carnac the Magnificent routines. This shouldn’t be a problem with Zoom, nor will the Facebook-averse need logins.
