    Tina & Tim Croghan & Mary Schultz's 3rd Annual Trivia Night is a Huge Success

    SPF Missouri's third Annual SPF Trivia Night was held on Saturday, April 21st at Maryland Heights Community Center (St. Louis area). Everyone there enjoyed the trivia competition and bid on the many Silent Auction items donated to SPF.

    The evening began with a brief PSA video about SPF and then on to the ten rounds of trivia, with one dedicated to bringing awareness to the audience.

    The Trivia Night yielded over $5,000 for SPF. Now that is no trivial matter!
