Lodi News-Sentinel - - PAGE TWO - — Wes Bow­ers

LODI — The Lodi High School Par­ent Teacher As­so­ci­a­tion is host­ing Trivia Night on Nov. 15 at Phillip’s Gym, 931 W. Wood­bridge Road, a 6 p.m.

The evening will in­clude a pasta din­ner pro­vided by Or­lando’s Deli of Stock­ton, beer and wine, and four rounds of trivia ques­tions mod­er­ated by Quiz­mas­ter Kevin.

Tick­ets are $25 each or $90 for a team of four. Teams are en­cour­aged to par­tic­i­pate in the trivia games for the evening. There will also be a raf­fle, with the chance to win a va­ri­ety of prizes.

Pro­ceeds go to­ward ad­vanced place­ment exam costs for Lodi High School stu­dents. Each exam costs $94. Last year, 425 AP stu­dents spent more than $60,000 on exam fees for 746 tests. Many stu­dents take as many as five ex­ams, and oth­ers have to choose one over the other based on fi­nan­cial com­mit­ment.

The evening’s goal is to both help fam­i­lies fi­nan­cially and to en­cour­age stu­dents to com­mit to tak­ing the exam with­out the bur­den of the cost. Many stu­dents take three to five ex­ams and some have to choose one exam over the oth­ers based on the fi­nan­cial com­mit­ment.
