DeKALB – Residents, staff, volunteers and community friends of the DeKalb Area Retirement Center – Oak Crest challenged themselves when they participated in the Trivia Night fundraising event.

Fourteen teams competed.

The SOAS Sponges, sponsored by SOAS Apparel and Design, claimed the title of trivia champs. The team was made of members of Westminster Presbyterian Church.

The fundraiser benefited the Oak Crest Good Samaritan Fund. Teams are already forming for next year.
