Trivia for Cheaters 2018

Last night, cheating was a good thing. Journalists, industry leaders, public servants, and community members joined us for our annual Trivia for Cheaters fundraiser, a pub-style trivia game where players “buy” cheats by donating to 826DC. A good time for a great cause!

Over 117 trivia whizzes gathered at The Wharf for this year’s Trivia for Cheaters, hosted by astrophysicist Hakeem Oluseyi. We also had a special guest: Senator Cory Booker!

We’re thrilled to share that, after a fierce competition, Trivia for Cheaters 2018 raised almost $79,000 to help support free writing programs here in Washington, DC!

The E=MCHammer team may have won the Cheater’s Cup, but last night was truly a win for young people across DC.

We’d like to thank our wonderful host Hakeem Oluseyi, special guest Senator Booker, venue host Cornerstone Government Affairs, the trivia masterminds at Quizmasters, all of the players and volunteers, and the sponsors below for making last night so possible and so awesome. Thanks to you, we’ll be able to make magic happen for more teachers and students across DC, all year long.
