“There’s nothing better than a fun night out while also raising money for a great cause,” says Austin, of the American Diabetes Association. “The St. Louis area is known for popularizing trivia nights, and I just think it’s a great way to spend an evening. I know a lot of people don’t think they will know a lot of the answers. But if you have a team filled with family and friends, there’s a good chance someone else at the table will know.

“Some people are more competitive than others, but the bottom line at events like this is raising funds for an excellent cause. There’s a good chance that almost everyone at least knows someone who has been affected by diabetes. We encourage everyone to reserve a table for the evening and have a great time.”
