Birthright of Quincy Virtual Trivia Registration Ends Friday
Are you looking for something fun to do this Saturday night? Well, Birthright of Quincy’s largest annual fundraiser will be taking place this Saturday, November 7th, and it is receiving a makeover this year due to current restrictions on large gatherings.
For years, Birthright Trivia Night has packed over 500 supporters together inside Quincy University’s Health & Fitness Center to enjoy a trivia contest and silent auction of more than 200 locally donated items. Money raised by the annual event represents half the funds needed to support Birthright’s clients for the entire year.
For the first time it its 11-year history, this year’s Birthright Trivia Night will be taking place virtually. “If we're going to continue helping the women and girls we serve, we have to find a way to forge ahead with our largest fundraiser, and we need our supporters’ help this year more than ever” Birthright President Patty Adam said.
Teams will gather at a location of their choice, or even virtually if they prefer, and follow along with the evening’s events on Zoom while entering trivia answers on a separate mobile app provided. Because of the virtual platform, there will be more multiple choice questions than years past, and answer scores will be weighted on response time.
In another first, this year’s event will not include a silent auction. Adam said it didn’t feel right to ask Birthright’s small business supporters to donate items this year considering how many are currently struggling as a result of the pandemic. For businesses and individuals who still want to support the cause, but not necessarily play trivia, event and round sponsorships are available and will be critical to funding Birthright’s mission.
For a donation of $125, trivia teams of up to 8 players can register online at birthrightquincyil.org, or contact Birthright at (217) 224-1277 for a registration form or more information. The registration deadline for trivia teams is this Friday at 8pm.
