Do you consider yourself to be skilled in the art of random facts and knowledge?
Then participating in “Trivia Knight” might be right up your alley.
The Oswego Police Department is teaming up with members from Special Olympics Illinois and the Oswego Knights of Columbus to host “Trivia Knight” and raise funds for the Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics Illinois.
The Law Enforcement Torch Run (LETR) began in 1981 when Wichita, Kansas (USA), Police Chief Richard LaMunyon saw an urgent need to increase awareness of Special Olympics. He also saw it as an ideal way to involve local law enforcement personnel with the Special Olympics community. Thirty years later, that flicker has become a roaring flame of stability for Special Olympic athletes worldwide.
“Trivia Knight” will take place at the Oswego Columbus Hall, 197 E. Washington St., on Saturday, October 20. The doors open at 6:00 p.m. with a silent auction at 6:30 p.m. and trivia starting at 7:00 p.m.
Those interested in participating in the “Trivia Knight” are asked to form teams of 8 people, who will answer questions in categories such as music, movies, sports and news.
Registration is $200 a team and entries are now being accepted. There is space for 15 teams.
To register, fill out a form at www.oswegopoliceil.org or pick up a form at the Oswego Police Department.
There will be raffles, prizes and awards throughout the night, as well as a contest for best table decorations. Tables may wear costumes and decorate tables as they choose.
The team that gets the most answers correct will get back their $200 registration fee.
Food will also be available via a cash bar, but participants are allowed to bring their own snacks and food.
