“Les Divers” ranked 14th at Quiz Night
Lions Club Luxembourg Country hosted a quiz night on Friday, March 4, 2016 at the Walferdange Cultural Centre.
Our club sent along its intrepid six-person, multinational, multilingual and multitalented team, aptly named “Les divers”. Despite a shaky start and battling their wits against 20 well-seasoned quiz teams, our combined efforts and diverse knowledge (and good guesses) resulted in "Les Divers" being ranked 14th in the competition.
The questions covered current events, geography, history, sports and the arts.
The profits from the quiz, food and drinks were donated to the Asbl RAHNA – Muppen ënnerstëtze Leit am Rollstull. This organisation supports people with disabilities by providing dogs specially educated to give them more autonomy in their daily lives. A member from the organisation gave a brief presentation of their work and also showed the skills of a trained dog in action.
We all had a great entertaining evening which had the added bonus of supporting a worthy cause.
