Virtual Trivia

June 25, 2020

This coming Friday, June 26, BC & Alberta Guide Dogs is holding its third Virtual Trivia Night fundraiser – this time with a Canada theme.

Six rounds of questions will test players’ knowledge about Canadian music, history, food, animals, geography, and other miscellaneous Canadiana.

The organization would like to invite the public to kick off their Canada Day celebrations with a fun game that also helps raise much needed funds to provide life-changing Guide Dogs, Autism Service Dogs and PTSD Service Dogs to those in need.

Restrictions caused by COVID-19 have prevented BC & Alberta Guide Dogs from holding in-person fundraising events, so the organization has focused its efforts on online initiatives.

“It’s really easy to join the game,” said Joni Wright, Director of Development and Communications at BC & Alberta Guide Dogs. “Register online to receive a link and game guide, and then click on it on game day. No app download is needed and you can play from your desktop or mobile phone.”

Tickets are $20 each and can be purchased online at The game starts at 6 p.m. Pacific Time, so players need to plan their start time based on their location.

This fundraiser is part of the BC & Alberta Guide Dog Virtual Trivia Summer Series, generously sponsored by Ledcor Group. Two additional themed games will take place later this summer: Virtual Trivia Night – Music Fest on July 24and Virtual Trivia Night – Summer Holiday on Aug. 14.
