Trivia Night a success

Crowd at Trivia Night

HAND’s third-annual Trivia Night on Feb. 28 raised almost $13,000 to support affordable housing programs in Indianapolis’ northern suburbs, up from about $9,000 last year.

A total of 22 eight-person teams participated in the general trivia competition hosted by Indy’s Live Trivia. After two tie-breakers, the Citizens State Bank team emerged as the winner.

In addition to a raffle and silent auction, the 2020 event included a dessert auction, which raised $987 alone. Each table bid on the chance to get the first choice of desserts, which were donated. The top-bidding table chose a chocolate cake from Classic Cakes in Carmel. A donation from Classic Cakes iNothing Bundt Cakes in Fishers was named the most creative dessert.

Trivia Night helps to support HAND’s programs, including developing affordable rental properties for seniors and families, and a home-repair program to preserve existing affordable housing stock. Since its beginning in 2003, HAND has invested over $21 million in suburban housing.

Many thanks to Trivia Night sponsor Breathe Easy Hamilton County, and to our other dessert donors: Perkins Restaurant and Bakery, Harbour Market, White House Donuts, the Goodie Basket, Janus Development Services, Ginger’s Café, Edible Arrangements, Titus Bakery, and Kolache Factory.

Founded in 2003 as Hamilton County Area Neighborhood Development Inc., HAND’s mission is to be a leader in promoting prosperity and diversity in its communities by providing quality housing opportunities for low- and moderate-income individuals and families.
