Posted by OMA on 03/03/2019

We want you to attend the 10th Annual Smarties Trivia Fundraising Night on Friday, June 14 at the Oklahoma History Center for a night of fun 

2019 Smarties Trivia Fundraiser Registration Now Open - Register Here
June 14, 2019 at the Oklahoma History Center, OKC
Doors open at 6:00pm and trivia begins at 7:00pm!
Registration deadline is June 4.
Open to guests 21 and up.

This is our tenth year to have the event, and we hope to have more teams and sponsors than ever!  The funds raised will be used to support the mission of assisting Oklahoma museums with their efforts to educate, inform and entertain. Oklahoma museums and the communities they serve are the beneficiaries of our Smarties fundraiser. 

It is easy to sign up….  Make a list of the people (co-workers, volunteers, board members, etc.) you would like to have as teammates and invite them to Smarties. Contact these smart, fun folks and after they have put the date on their calendar, come up with a fun team name! Great examples from previous years include The Magnificent Eight (National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum), Rocket Surgeons (Science Museum Oklahoma) and Mummy Maniacs (Mabee-Gerrer Museum of Art) to name a few.  Then register your team here

This year's Smarties Trivia Fundraising Night is going to be a little different and we are excited for the changes including using electronic devices for the trivia game.  In addition to our every popular silent auction, we will continue with the wine pull, heads or tails game and a new Rustic Cuff bracelet tree!

We are currently seeking Smarties sponsorships.  More information on being a sponsor can be found here

A huge thank you to our sponsors to date:

Oklahoma Today Magazine

ITIN Museum Services
West Oklahoma City Rotary Club 
Route 66 Alliance
