QUIZINE for a Cause! A cross between quiz and cuisine.

Once again, you helped us prove that It Takes a Community to Make a Home at the 12th Annual Quizine for a Cause on October 29, 2017!

Over 240 community members braved the foul weather to prove that love and commitment can make a huge difference to our community. Your generosity allowed us to raise more than $123,000 to replenish our client fund and build our endowment. Thank you!


Guests begin the evening with dinner at a local home or restaurant and then gather together at Wesleyan University for client stories, homemade desserts, wine and beer tasting, tea cup raffle, live auction, and trivia quizzes. With the support of individuals and businesses in the community, Gilead was thrilled to raise over $123,000 during Quizine for a Cause on October 29, 2017.
