Josh was always one for a big party. He enjoyed bringing friends and family together to have a great time. Trivia4Josh is the largest fundraiser for the Josh Seidel Memorial Foundation. The event’s fourth year proved to be an astounding success. Our trivia committee comprised of 20 family members and friends of Josh worked for over 9 months to prepare for this event. Countless Sunday evenings were spent creating silent auction baskets, generating challenging yet entertaining trivia questions and preparing for every detail from delicious food and programs to raffles and games. With our largest attendance to date, Josh was surely smiling at the generous outpouring from the attendees. Starting at the red carpet with the step and repeat banner, guests were welcomed by JSMF Board Members and friends and family. The buffet-style BBQ dinner from Pappy’s Smokehouse was a big hit. The large crowd enjoyed the engaging trivia, the slides about Josh and the amazing music. Guests used mobile bidding to bid on auction items from their seats or from the bar. Our emcee, Ann Allred, kept the crowd engaged through 6 rounds of trivia. The live auction was the highlight of the evening with a moving video about Josh’s legacy and the mission of the Foundation. The night was full of laughs, love and kindness. We are so thankful to everyone who made this event such a success. We look forward to using these funds to help others just as Josh did.
