A Gathering of the Minds

The frolicking fun continued later Friday night when I drove up to St Louis to join the Give Kids a Smile Trivia Night Fundraiser. This is the 10th year for GKAS and there was a lot to celebrate in the large crowd. The silent and verbal auctions were a big hit and the atmosphere was quite boisterous as teams competed in the intellectual arena of trivia. Turns out, dentists are pretty confident and competitive on all things intellectual - who knew! There was a near uproar over some cooking questions and the science category almost became a wrestling match. All in the name of charity, of course!
Dr. Mark Ortinau, a board member with GKAS, was nice enough to include me on his team. I'm not sure what impact I made but we did finish 4th (just outside the money) from among 25+ teams. The food and drink were as plentiful as the laughter. It was great to see the large turnout and to recognize so many MDA members. Thanks for what you do to support GKAS and the fine work that Joan Allen and her team do.
