Nativity Schools Build Community with Triviaoke Event

Jennifer Elena, SHNS Board Member, with Trivia Teammate Deacon Rubén Solorio, SHNS President

Catholic School teams from around Santa Clara County, and community groups and friends competed in Sacred Heart Nativity Schools’ 2nd Annual Triviaoke Event held on Saturday, January 26. Triviaoke is a combination of trivia and karaoke. Players formed teams represented by organizations such as Bellarmine College Prep, The Diocese of San Jose, Jesuit Scholastics, Presentation High School, St. Mary’s of Los Gatos, Santa Clara University (SCU) Ignatian Center, SCU Thriving Neighborhood Initiative, The Foundation for Hispanic Education, Nativity Board Members and faculty, and many, many others.

Teams tested their knowledge in six rounds of trivia competition alternating with rounds of open mike karaoke. Trivia topics ranged from “Famous Quotes from Sports Movies” to “Name that Bay Area Mascot.” Players enjoyed a nacho bar, and beer from Lagunitas Brewing Company.

All proceeds benefited tuition assistance for Sacred Heart Nativity Schools (SHNS). SHNS is a private, Catholic middle school serving low-income Latino youth in Santa Clara County. SHNS is comprised of two schools: Sacred Heart Nativity School for Boys (est. 2001) and Our Lady of Grace Nativity School for Girls (est. 2006). SHNS operates primarily as a tuition-free school and relies on donations from individuals and businesses, foundations, grants and fundraising to make up its $2.2 million annual operating budget. The biggest annual fundraising event is The ¡Fiesta! Dinner and Auction Event which will be held on Saturday, April 6.
