The Treasure Hunters, Hilary Trammell, Dianne Orton and Kristy Bryant dressed up as pirates for the second annual Voluntary Action Center's trivia night. The trivia night raised more than $6,800.

Ron Schmidt is the project director at the Voluntary Action Center in Columbia.  

On Tuesday, March 6, Veterans United Home Loans presented VAC's 2nd Annual Trivia Night at Knights of Columbus Hall. 

Appetizers and snacks from D. Rowe’s and the University Club were served.  Over $6,800 was raised to help VAC in its mission to combat poverty in Boone County.
