For all of you trivia nuts out there who enjoy games like Jeopardy or anyone looking for fun on a cold January night, the PCM Foundation/Endowment board members once again have just the challenge for you. The Eighth Annual “A Night of Trivia” event is planned for Jan. 26 at Fore Seasons Golf Practice Center, 6232 Highway S74 S.
Doors open at 6 p.m. and trivia starts at 7 p.m. in the banquet room. Cost of the trivia extravaganza is $100 per team, with each team consisting of no more than eight players. Sixteen teams have already signed up to compete, with cash prizes and door prizes to be awarded.
Prairie City Mayor Chad Alleger will MC the event, asking questions in 10 different categories through 10 rounds with 10 questions in each round. Results will be updated after each round so teams will know where they stand.
Fun traditions have grown throughout the seven previous competitions including team names and table decorations. Most teams also bring snacks to share at their tables. Drinks and food will also be available for purchase from Fore Seasons.
“Trivia Night is such a great time,” board member Sue Ponder said. “It is so much fun because you get to collaborate with others on your team to find the best answers to the questions, so you don’t feel like you have to know everything. Having people on your team with a wide variety of interests is a good idea. Ask anyone who’s been before! It’s a good time for a good cause.”
PCM Foundation/Endowment board members continue working to make the school community aware they‘re out there. They have fundraisers, give scholarships and purchase equipment for teachers which the ordinary budget doesn’t provide, but they need those “gifts that keep on giving,” which are tax deductible, to enhance their efforts.
Questions and reservations may be directed to Ponder at 515-238-8857 or Kathy Macy at 641-521-1495. Email reservations will also be taken at firstname.lastname@example.org. It is recommended that reservations be made as soon possible as table space is limited.
