Compete to Defeat not a Trivial Success!

Friday, July 6th, 2018

Housing Forward’s 8th Annual Trivia Night, Compete to Defeat Homelessness took place on July 12 at Fitzgerald's Nighclub in Berwyn. The impressive first place trophy was awarded to Team Bro Bozos whose members were Pam & Charlie Meyerson, Jane & Josh Ditelberg, Janice Kieckhefer and Jake Skubbish -- but we believe at an event like this, everyone is a winner. The boisterous crowd of about 150 brainy contestants from 25 teams, answered questions and bid on auction items like Chicago Bears tickets. The evening raised over $10,000 for Housing Forward  -- enough to provide one-time rental assistance to prevent 6 families from becoming homeless. Many thanks to stellar host Dan Simpson from Whaddayaknow Pub Trivia who helped made the evening fun and informative. Due to the generous support of our event volunteers and sponsors; Forest Agency Insurance, World’s Largest Laundromat, The Heartland Construction Group, Inc., Counter Coffee, Forest Printing Co, Team Blonde, Culver’s of Berwyn, Firehouse Subs Stone Park, Di Nico’s, Nonna D’s Ristorante & Pizzeria, Panera Bread, Salerno’s, and Amy Dean from Dean Public Relations, 100% of funds raised will advance our mission of transitioning individuals and families from housing crisis to housing stability. To see more photos taken at the event by Amy Dean, of Dean Public Relations, visit
