Get your trivia team together for a battle to win the Solly’s Pub Quiz Wednesday at Solly’s U Street Tavern. 10% of bar proceeds will benefit The Sergeant Thomas Joseph Sullivan Center.

[SSC is named for Tom Sullivan, a Silver Spring native, Marine, and Iraq War veteran, who died at age 30 in 2009 after suffering acute health complications that began during his deployment and worsened upon his return. Despite care from dozens of specialists and several years of treatment his health problems were never fully explained. Tom’s postmortem examination uncovered evidence of widespread organ and cardiovascular degeneration that were not detected during his life using general diagnostic procedures.

After his death, Tom’s family learned that a significant number of veterans return from war with similar emerging medical problems and founded the Center in his memory as a not-for-profit organization dedicated to improving health outcomes for veterans with post-deployment health concerns.]

Grand prize for the Pub Quiz winning team is $50 to their tab!!! There will also be a drawing a one-year membership in Capital Bikeshare (and one other special prize); ticket sales for the drawing benefit the Sergeant Sullivan Center. Come join us!
