Friday the 13th was anything but bad luck at St. Martin’s as more than 100 people packed Park Hall for this year’s Trivia Night, raising approximately $6,000 for mission work.

Youth Ministries Coordinator Heidi Gioia and the youth group organized the event, with all proceeds going toward tornado relief in Joplin (and other areas) and Lui, South Sudan.

The fun event featured a silent auction, a 50-50 raffle, side games and (of course) 10 rounds of fun trivia questions. The participants also competed for prizes by decorating their tables in a holiday theme. (Yes, the Cardinals’ home opening game is an official holiday!)

Thanks to everyone who participated, especially to all the winners who returned all their cash prizes to the church for mission work. Thanks also to Heidi and her crew, including Master of Ceremonies Mike Kellogg and all who helped make this evening a huge success!

We have three collections of pictures from the evening. Click on the arrow in the middle of the pictures to start the slide shows. (Pictures from Matthew Greenbaum, Janis Greenbaum and Heidi Gioia.)
