Send your response to Camille at cferrara@phippsny.org

How do I set up for trivia once I have signed up for that room?

  • You will be using Trivia Hub to track and submit answers.
  • You can learn all about set up and prizes here.
  • You can sign in to our trivia room around the event time of 6:30pm here.
  • If possible, please use a second device (ex: a phone, tablet, or laptop) for trivia. This would allow you to submit answers and participate in the Zoom call simultaneously without having to toggle back and forth between Zoom and Trivia Hub on your device.

Is this going to be another boring Zoom call?

Not a chance! We have an exclusive performance by Jonathan Burke, Broadway star of Choir Boy, The inheritance and an original cast member of Tuck Everlasting!

And that’s not all! Laugh all night with Emcee, Chandler Dean and stay on after the event for pub style sports time with Khari Freeman and friends!

How can I watch the Football Game?

The game will not be streaming on Zoom. Stay on to hang out while watching the game on your own TV.
