Coronado Rotaract, which formed in January of this year, is breaking the molds and raising the monies. The Millennial based version of Coronado’s Rotary, is identifying causes they care about and imagining their own ways to raise funds.

Millennial Trivia took place on Wednesday the July 17, from 7 to 9 p.m. raising funds for Coronado Rotaract and PAWS of Coronado. Mexican Village graciously allowed their space, as well as presented drink and appetizer deals for participants, and gift certificates for the top two teams. Casey Tanaka, PAWS Board Member, hosted the event and created the questions.

Tanaka said, “It was a great group and I enjoyed the chance to write questions for a different crowd. Our animals and PAWS are so thankful for Coronado Rotaract!”

About 60 participants began the competition and 11 teams made it through the two hours of millennial based questions. For reference, questions included: who is the youngest self-made billionaire (Kylie Jenner), and what the price of bit coin at 5 p.m. the day of event (over $10,000).

Madison Marchetti, Rotaract Board member, says “Millennial Trivia was a great way to bring together the young thought leaders of Coronado in a fun, relaxed, environment. Raising money for PAWS is also incredibly rewarding!”

The event raised $635, $317.50 is being donated to PAWS. Don’t miss Coronado Rotaract’s next event, check out their website CoronadoRotaract.org.
