In what movie did Tom Hanks play character Chuck Noland?

Cast Away!  You knew that right?

That was one among a hundred tricky trivia questions laid out on Saturday night at the January 20th Trivia Night fundraiser.  It was a huge success!  Leaside United Church (LUC) hosted this fun event in support of El Hogar de Amor y Esperanza, a school and home in Tegucigalpa, Honduras. LUC has had a long tradition of supporting El Hogar through the church’s Outreach Program.

Over 90 players on 13 teams matched wits in the trivia contest. In the end, Team ‘Kangaroo’ took first place, answering 85% of the questions correctly! Close behind were the ‘Quizzlers’ and ‘The Condemned’. Some of the trivia topics included: Man’s Best Friend, Tom Hanks movies, Famous Landmarks and Arts and Literature. When the night was over, about $3,000 had been raised for the children of El Hogar.

Thank you for your continued support!
