by | Feb 14, 2023

Film trivia buffs settle in for an evening of competition at The Samoset Resort.

Food-in-crisis areas and the World Central Kitchen were the focus of Satellite of West Bay Rotary’s recent fundraiser, “Red Carpet Trivia,” which took place on February 11 at The Samoset Resort in Rockport.

Almost 60 individuals on 10 teams answered close to 50 tough questions on films, actors and other film-related topics. There were players from West Bay Rotary, Rockland Rotary, Camden Rotary, Belfast Rotary, Allen Insurance and Financial, Camden Lions Club, and more. First place went to the Rockland Rotary team. Second and third went to Camden Lion’s and Camden Law.

As the evening wore on, the questions kept everyone guessing at Satellite’s “Red Carpet Trivia” night at The Samoset Resort.

The event was made possible thanks to the generous support of The Samoset Resort, Allen Insurance and Financial, Camden Lions Club, and Roberta and Gary Walker of West Bay Rotary. Prizes were donated by CIFF/Points North, Strand Theatre, Satellite chair Sarah Ruef-Lindquist, Ducktrap Seafood, and Inn at Ocean’s Edge. There were awards for costumes as well as the top three scoring teams. Emcee SweeT Tom Chester, past president of West Bay Rotary, facilitated and entertained the group.
