The Cause

By supporting The Answer, you’ll help scientists at Pennington Biomedical pursue research that can change lives across the globe.

Your support enables us to recruit and retain world renowned scientists as well as give them the resources to conduct their studies. Their research covers a wide array of chronic diseases such as dementia, obesity, diabetes, cancer, and much more.

Though Pennington Biomedical has had many breakthroughs and successes, crucial questions still remain about the triggers and treatment of these devastating illnesses. With gifts from individuals, foundations and businesses, the exploration of new ideas, innovative techniques and powerful technologies will be accelerated.


The Game

  • Each table of 10 makes up a team that will compete in a trivia game filled with games and action!
  • Our emcee will ask fun, multiple choice trivia questions (no expertise required!) that each table has a chance to answer using a remote in real-time.
  • After each series of questions, top scoring teams will compete in a “mini game” round for a chance to make it to the Finals.
  • The final 4 teams left standing will go on to compete in the hope of becoming the “2019 Answer Champions”!
