Virtual trivia event sponsored by Sean Henry raises $700 for Westbay

Posted

A charitable virtual trivia night hosted by Ward 9 independent candidate Sean Henry on Oct. 23 raised $700 for Westbay Community Action. Westbay is a Warwick-based nonprofit dedicated to supporting local families and community initiatives. In addition, several restaurants and local businesses in the Kent County area donated gift cards and prizes for those who participated.

This event was held completely online over Facebook Live, in collaboration with ACE Entertainment New England, and included various categories ranging from science, sports, film/TV, and Rhode Island trivia.

“The fundraiser was a huge success thanks to the generosity of so many people, and I'm proud of the work that went into making it happen! In these difficult times, I felt it was

more important to give back to the community than to raise money for my own political campaign. The strongest communities are those in which the people and their leaders show compassion and empathy for others, and I vow to continually uphold and promote those virtues if afforded the opportunity to serve on the Warwick City Council,” Henrty said in a statement.

For more information on the event, including the list of businesses that contributed, visit www.fb.com/seanhenryforwarwick.

Henry, trivia
