Taking place in Bellingham Technical College's Settlemyer Hall, the Trivia Bee & Silent Auction is the Whatcom Literacy Council’s annual spring fundraiser for know-it-alls, know-a-little-bits, and fun lovers of every stripe. Dozens of teams sponsored by local businesses––including Village Books’ team, The Village Idiots––compete against each other while the witty remarks of co-hosts Scotty VanDryver of KAFE Radio and Jeopardy! champion Ken Jennings provoke laughter and competitive spirit. 

The evening begins with a Silent Auction offering tables full of great items, so bring your checkbook. Bidding in the Silent Auction begins at 6pm and the Trivia Bee starts promptly at 7pm. Wine and beer will be available at a cash bar; snack on pizza, cookies and coffee, with a 50/50 raffle and a "wine grab" to add to the fun.

All proceeds go to support the Whatcom Literacy Council’s free adult literacy programs here in Whatcom County.  Register a team, sponsor the event, or just come and cheer on your friends in this fun and friendly competition of wits.

Tickets are $15/person, available at Village Books and at the door.
