TrivWorks Goes Bananas!

“In 2011, TrivWorks – a live trivia company specializing in corporate event entertainment and team building activities in NYC and beyond – produced a 300-person trivia night to benefit VH1 Save The Music Foundation, hosted by NY1 anchor Pat Kiernan. We had arranged for 30 members of a local elementary school band to perform as a means of kicking the event off, and when thinking about what would be the perfect thank-you gift to give each of them, Banagrams were the first thing that came to mind! The reaction from both the audience as well as the kids was overwhelming: Bananas are a HIT gift for people of all ages!
Now, four years later, we continue to give away Banangrams as a crowd-pleasing prize at both our corporate and public events – it’s the perfect game for people who love a fun yet challenging contest, much in the same way people enjoy trivia events. Thank you, Bananagrams!”
David Jacobson – Founder, TrivWorks
