Scientists at Pennington Biomedical Research Center have an unwavering dedication to searching for The Answer to chronic diseases such as obesity, diabetes, dementia, and cancer. Every day, researchers right here in Baton Rouge are translating science into solutions. The Answer is Pennington Biomedical Research Foundation’s annual fundraiser for this life-changing research.

In a live, game show atmosphere, teams of 10 must choose the correct answers to timed, multiple-choice trivia questions. The teams with the highest scores go on to compete in quarter and semi-final minute-to-win-it challenges until a grand champion emerges!

Proceeds from the event are invested in research that is taking place right here in Baton Rouge and aims to find answers for obesity, diabetes, dementia, cancer, and other chronic diseases.

Sponsorship and in-kind donation packages include special recognition, priority seating and invitations to other Pennington Biomedical Research Foundation events throughout the year.

This year’s theme is…

…and we hope to see you there!

Stop waiting for solutions and become part of The Answer.
