Play trivia, drink beer, and send textbooks to Uganda

On Monday, October 18, the Pied Piper Alehouse (2404 NE 65th St) and The International Pharmaceutical Students’ Federation (University of Washington Chapter) are holding their Second Annual Around the World Trivia Night.

The $5-per-person buy-in goes directly towards donating textbooks to the Makerere School of Pharmacy in Uganda.

The action starts at 8pm, but we’d recommend arriving earlier to enjoy such amenities as International Beer Specials, and Chairs.

Last year’s event had over 70 participants, and raised over $1,100 for the Jimma School of Pharmacy in Ethiopia (trivia proceeds were added to a matching grant from the School of Pharmacy’s Bridges to Health fund).

Participants of Around the World Trivia Night may enter a raffle to win themselves PRIZES donated by local businesses and pharmacy student organizations.

Thank you to Stephen at the Pied Piper Alehouse for the information.
