Magellan Health Employees to Host 14th Annual Trivia Night in Support of the BJC Wings Pediatric Hospice Program

ST. LOUIS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Magellan
Health, Inc
. (NASDAQ: MGLN) announced that its St. Louis-based
employees will host their 14th annual Trivia Night to benefit
the BJC Wings Pediatric Hospice Program on Saturday, February 27, 2016.
The Magellan Cares Foundation, a nonprofit charitable organization with
the mission to improve the health and wellbeing of the lives and
communities Magellan Health serves, will also lend its support to the
event in the form of a $2,500 check to the BJC Wings Pediatric Hospice
Program.

Throughout the night, teams of eight will work together to answer trivia
questions in categories such as history, movies, current events, music,
sports and more. In addition, participants have the chance to take home
as much as $1,000 in cash prizes. Gift baskets and packages donated by

sponsor a Charity Golf Tournament that also supports the BJC Wings
Pediatric Hospice Program. Over the past 13 years, Magellan Health
