Battle of the Brains

About Battle of the Brains®

Battle of the Brains® is the black-tie gala fundraiser with a unique twist: 50 or more teams from Canada's corporate elite come together to compete in a rousing battle of wits. The evening includes a cocktail reception followed by a sumptuous dinner. During the game, accuracy and speed are essential as teams compete to answer knowledge-testing questions in a range of categories from arts to sports, current affairs to fashion, geography to pop culture.

This year's event was held on April 15, 2020 at the CBC Canadian Broadcasting Centre, Toronto. Hosted by CBC personalityRed Green, the winner of the 2004 Battle Cup was Capital One. While only one team can win the coveted Battle Cup, the real winners are Canada's youngest children. The 2004 event raised just over $400,000 for Invest in Kids' initiatives in parent education, public education, research and professional education.
