Ann Cleghorn’s team of Jack Close, Mario Ab­du­rach­man, Amanda Voveris, Greg France, An­nie Judd, Amy Close and Jo Zouwer took out first place to prove they were the trivia mas­ter­minds of the night.

More than $1300 was raised on the evening with all funds go­ing to the Zonta Says No cam­paign and Breast Care.
