M.A.D Trivia is the RCU Foundation’s newest event. This trivia event includes fabulous food, fun swag, and engaging questions - and best of all, it's being held to support a deserving local organization.
The Royal Credit Union Foundation partnered with the New Richmond Area Chamber of Commerce to present M.A.D. Trivia on October 20,2022. The event raised $5,000 for the New Richmond School District’s Happy Kids Backpack Program.
M.A.D. Trivia had over 150 participants gather in teams of eight and compete during six rounds of trivia for prizes. Additional fundraising opportunities were offered at the event to help increase the donation amount for the New Richmond Happy Kids Backpack Program.

About The Happy Kids Backpack Program
The New Richmond School District’s Happy Kids Backpack Program provides backpacks of food to families under financial hardship every Friday of the school year. The intention is for the food to nourish children and their families over the weekend when school meals are not available. The program also educates families on healthy meal choices and provides access to fresh food options. Times continue to be financially tough for many families in the area and demand for the program is increasing every year. Funds raised will support the distribution of over 80 backpacks per week, providing nutrition for students and their family members.
