Great Richmond Trivia Bee

Thank you for making 2019's Trivia Bee a success!

The Great Richmond Trivia Bee, #RVATriviaBee, benefiting The READ Center, is Richmond’s own live game show. The Bee is presented by Union Bank & Trust and sponsored by Columbia Gas of Virginia. It’s a team-based competition for people who love words, vocabulary, pop culture, history, literature, and showing off how smart they are. It’s also a fundraiser for The READ Center, whose mission is to help adults with low-level literacy develop basic reading, communication, math, and digital skills so they can fulfill their roles as family members, workers, and members of the community.
