Test your trivia knowledge at fund-raiser for Detroit Cristo Rey High School

Here’s a sure-fire way to help cure the winter blues and it’s for a good cause. 

Test your sports trivia knowledge against Detroit sports media celebrities on Wednesday (Jan. 29) at the second annual Trivia Challenge to benefit Detroit Cristo Rey High School.

The event starts at 7 p.m., at Dino’s Lounge in Fermdale (on east side of Woodward just south of Nine Mile.)

Sports media celebrities expected to appear include Fox 2’s Jennifer Hammond; 97.1 The Ticket’s Bob Wojnowksi, Jamie Samuelson and Mike Stone; Detroit News columnists John Niyo and Terry Foster; and me.

If you’re not familiar here’s a brief description of the school from their web site:

Detroit Cristo Rey High School is a coed Catholic high school that provides high-quality college preparatory education to students from economically disadvantaged families in Detroit.

“Cristo Rey utilizes a longer school day and year, academic assistance, and counseling to prepare students with a broad range of academic abilities for college. All students at Cristo Rey participate in a work study program through which they finance the majority of the cost of their education, gain real world job experience, grow in self-confidence, realize the relevance of their education, and look forward to a brighter future.’’

Should be a fun evening for a great cause.
