SAN FRANCISCO — It’s that time of the year again for the Advancing Justice-Asian Law Caucus’ 17th annual Team Trivia Competition, “Irrelevant, Immaterial and Trivial,” on Saturday, Nov. 8, from 7 to 10 p.m. Doors open at 6 p.m. with food and drinks available for purchase.
It will be held at St. Mary’s Cathedral in Patron’s Hall, 1111 Gough St. (at Geary) in San Francisco. There is also free parking.
Questions will cover a wide variety of categories, from sports to food to pop culture to current events. Some questions will involve Asia or Asian Americans. Sample questions:
Who famously said, “I don’t do drugs, I am drugs”?
Name the U.S. Winter Olympian who has the most medals.
What is located at 1313 S. Harbor Blvd.?
(Answers at end of this article.)
If you’ve ever played in the Trivia Competition, you know how it works:
– Form a team of eight to 12 players
– Pick a team captain and a funny team name
– Register by filling out a team entry form and return via email
Individuals without a team may be able to join teams that don’t have the maximum number of players.
Donation fees will be collected by your team captain at the Trivia Competition. The individual entry fee is $40, with special rates for students and nonprofit employees (still $20).
There are also sponsor rates with additional perks — free food and drinks, preferred seating, special recognition and a bigger tax deduction for your donation — plus a special rate for first-time new sponsors at $600 per team.
All proceeds benefit Advancing Justice-Asian Law Caucus, a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization serving low-income Asians and Pacific Islanders.
