Trivia buffs will have a chance to put their skills to the test and raise money for a good cause at McMinnville Young Professionals Holiday Trivia Takeover.
The Holiday Trivia event will be Saturday, Dec. 11 at 6:30 p.m. at Smooth Rapids. The event is a fundraiser in support of the Family Resource Center.
“We normally just do one trivia fundraiser but we had such a great turnout and such positive feedback we decided to have Christmas-themed trivia as well,” said Autumn Malone, a member of McMinnville Young Professionals. “Family Resource Center is our community outreach partner for this year for MYP. Each year we pick a local nonprofit to partner with. We collect supplies for them throughout the year, as well as have a couple of fundraising event for them.”
The way the trivia night will work is there will be teams of eight and the cost is $100 per team. Everyone is welcome to participate once they register a team.
“Anyone can participate in trivia, not just MYP members. There is still time to sign up and get a team together. Max of eight players per team,” said Malone.
Along with trivia, there will be additional prizes for the best ugly Christmas sweater and best table decorations. There will also be a special prize drawing for canned goods donations for the Family Resource Center. McMinnville Young Professionals is hoping to raise a good amount of money for the Family Resource Center.
Malone says they raised $1,250 at their last event, a trivia contest held before Halloween where participants were encouraged to dress in costume.
Smooth Rapids is located at 245 Durham Street and the Trivia Takeover will begin at 6:30 p.m. For more information or to register contact the McMinnville-Warren County Chamber of Commerce at 931-473-6611.
