Trivia for Cheaters

Who will take home the coveted cheater's cup?


You're Invited!

You’re invited to 826DC’s annual Trivia for Cheaters event! Join us for an evening of pub-style trivia at the Microsoft Innovation and Policy Center with DC’s best and brightest. The twist? Teams may cheat to win– by donating to 826DC’s youth writing programs. Previous hosts have included CNN’s Chris Cilizza, Politico’s Kenneth Vogel, and Clinton Yates of ESPN/The Undefeated.

This year we are thrilled to welcome host Mike Wise, senior writer and columnist for ESPN’s The Undefeated. You can follow him on Twitter at @MikeWiseguy.
