By Emily Castello -- On Tuesday, May 10th, blueEnergy hosted its 4th Trivia Night Fundraiser at Maggie McGarry’s in San Francisco, CA. With support from Bradley & Company Private Wealth Management, Latham & Watkins LLP, Mermaid Sweets, Pacific Brewing Laboratories, Maggie McGarry’s Pub, trivia master Fritz Zimmerman, and 150 blueEnergy Bay Area supporters, it was our largest, most successful Trivia Night to date. We raised $3,200! All of the proceeds from the event will go directly to support blueEnergy’s continued work in Nicaragua.

blueEnergy was thrilled to welcome former and current volunteers, long-time supporters, and new friends at the event. Within the back room of Maggy McGarry’s, new friendships were forged, long-standing competition between the Stanford and Berkeley groups ensued, and the proper term for the groove running between your nose and upper lip (the Philtrum) was introduced.

The evening’s competition was fierce, but only one team could come out on top. Congratulations to “Catawania Trivia Association of America” for taking home the grand prize, and to "Pee on the Tree" and “Energia Elotica” for coming in a close second and third. Pictures have been posted so please visit our Facebook Fan page HERE to check them out.
