UNIQUE EVENT TO FIGHT LOCAL AIDS EPIDEMIC - 5th Annual Twisted Trivia

(Spartanburg, S.C. – January 23, 2017) – The 5th annual Twisted Trivia fundraiser to support Piedmont Care’s HIV prevention program is “the only adult trivia party in town,” states Board Member, Kristi Ward. “You won’t see this kind of entertainment and group interaction anywhere else, and the best part is – all the shenanigans are for a great cause.  We listened to our patrons and have made changes for this year’s event.  Extended time, silent auction, and shorter trivia games will give patrons more time to socialize!”

Local legend Patti O’Furniture, the entertainer known as the “yard sale with legs,” will reprise her role as Mistress of Ceremonies. “I am thrilled to come back to my hometown to raise money for this extraordinary organization,” states O’Furniture. “Twisted Trivia is edgy and provocative. I promise you won’t want to miss it!”

That’s why this fundraiser is so important.” Since 1994, Piedmont Care has served more than 1400 people living with HIV/AIDS and their families. More than 900 people have learned their HIV status and received prevention counseling through our free HIV testing program and thousands of our neighbors have accessed free condoms and HIV prevention education.
