Trivia masters from around Bakersfield will put their knowledge to the test on Saturday, April 19 at the third annual Brains of Bakersfield contest at California State University, Bakersfield's Icardo Center.

Brains of Bakersfield is based on the popular British trivia game Quiz Night, which is played in pubs and even on television. The contest features teams of up to 10 people who are challenged to answer tough questions ranging from sports trivia to scientific facts. The questions are timed and each team records its answers. Competition is fierce and fast paced.

The event begins with a cocktail hour at 6:30 p.m. followed by the start of the contest at 7 p.m. Dinner will be provided during halftime courtesy of Frugatti's Italian Eatery. Music will be provided by Whiskey Galore.

All proceeds from the evening will go to the Jamison Children's Center Foundation. The center provides emergency shelter for abused, neglected and exploited children, and a safe alternative for children in protective custody.

The entry fee for the Brains of Bakersfield contest is $300 per team. The winning team will be presented with trophies proclaiming them as the "Brainy Bunch."

The deadline to enter is April 12. Please call Ben Graham at (661) 654-2598 for additional details and to enter a team.
