First prize is $300, second prize is $100, and third prize is $50. A special Haverhill round offers a $50 prize.

The last Trivia Night event raised nearly $4,000 to help support education in the Haverhill Public Schools. HFEE is an all-volunteer, nonprofit organization that supports programs and projects in the Haverhill Public Schools. The Haverhill High Model UN team, the Discovery Club after-school and summer program, the Robotics program as well as the annual District Parent Council Write Away Contest have received support from HFEE.

Trivia Night is sponsored by the Pentucket Bank, Haverhill Bank and the Haverhill Firefighters Union. Additional sponsor opportunities are available by contacting the foundation at hfee@comcast.net or 978-697-5620.

Author to visit public library: New York Times best-selling author Joe Hill will be at the public library on May 12 at 7 p.m. for Haverhill Reads.
