Harvest House benefits from music trivia fundraiser

Total surpasses $2,300 from Cowichan Valley Autos tournament, with more to come in

The total donation to the Chemainus Harvest House Food Bank from the Cowichan Valley Autos sixth annual music trivia tournament has surpassed $2,300.

Organizer Jeff Harrison said the total sat at $2,322 after the event on Sept. 8 at Cowichan Valley Autos, with more donations still to come in.

The 87 players contributed $20 each for a total of $1,740. The 50-50 draw also raised an additional $582.

Cowichan Valley Autos owner Brian Pickering chipped in the extra cost to ensure everyone in attendance went home with a door prize.

As a result, “we are very happy to tell you that every dollar collected in entry fees is going to the food bank,” noted Harrison.

A total of 15 teams, with six members each, attempted to identify song titles and artists from music clips for 12 rounds and also answered trivia questions. The Debra Hartlen Falty Towers team accumulated the most points and emerged as the tournament champions for the first time.
