Put on your thinking cap! It is time for the Washington Rotary Club's 13th Annual Charity Trivia Contest to be held on Friday, March 20 at 7 p.m. at the South Franklin Fire Hall.
Rotary will donate $1,250 to the charity of the winning team's choice, $750 to the second place team's charity and $500 to the third place team's charity. In 2014, a total of 300 people and 38 teams participated.
The event consists of 50 questions segmented into 10 categories of five questions each. All teams play simultaneously, with answers written on a notecard and scores tabulated by the quizmasters and scorekeepers. In between rounds, activities include door prize drawings and a raffle auction. Sponsorship opportunities are also available.
This year's Quizmaster will be Dorothy Curley Tecklenburg, a member of the Washington Rotary Club.
Teams must consist of a minimum of four people and a maximum of eight. Team size is strictly enforced, and full teams of eight are encouraged (the more brains the better!). The entry fee is $35 per team member and includes snacks and beverages. As space permits, spectators and cheerleaders are permitted to attend at $35 per person, but spectators and cheerleaders are not permitted to sit with teams during game-play.
To enter a team in the Charity Trivia Contest, send one check per team - with the team name noted in the memo - made payable to "Washington Rotary Club" in the amount of $35 per player and/or spectator to the Washington Rotary Club, c/o Kathy Sabol, 119 S. College St., Washington, PA 15301.
Registration must include the following: 1) email address and phone number for the team captain; 2) team name (be creative!); and 3) the name of the 501c3 non-profit charitable organization for which the team is playing.
Teams must be registered by March 13 - no exceptions. Team registrations will be accepted in the order that they are paid in full. Visit www.rotarywashpa.org to download a registration form.
