CEU Alumni & Friends in Kyrgyzstan have devised a unique method of supporting their alma mater: they’re hitting the local pub quiz circuit.
Kyrgyz alumni have formed a team to compete at quiz nights in Bishkek pubs. The idea, group leaders say, is twofold: increase the university’s brand visibility in Kyrgyzstan, and to hopefully win some prize money in the process.
Any money the team wins will be donated to the CEU Alumni Campaign, chapter leaders say.
The team has competed twice in the last two months, and took second place at a quiz in Bishkek in January.
The CEU Alumni Campaign raised more than $87,000 last year, thanks to the generosity of alumni like you. The campaign has raised a total of $420,679 since its inception ten years ago.
CEU alumni contributed more than $31,000 in December 2012 alone, as part of a robust holiday fundraising drive. Consequently, the Alumni Campaign is now only $80,000 away from its ultimate goal of $500,000. (Check campaign statistics here.)
