Washington Rotary Club’s 11th Annual Rotary Charity Trivia Contest will take place at 7 p.m. March 8 the Three Rivers Auction House in Washington. Rotary will donate $1,000 to the charity of the winning team’s choice, $500 to the second place team’s charity and $250 to the third place team’s charity.

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. Last year, a total of 200 people and 33 teams participated. Net proceeds are donated to the Rotary Foundation, which funds international projects that provide health care, clean water, food, education and other essential needs in the developing world.

Teams must consist of a minimum of four people and a maximum of eight; team size is strictly enforced. The entry fee is $30 per team member and includes pizza, snacks and beverages. The fee for all spectators is also $30 per person, and 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 $30 per player and/or spectator to the Washington Rotary Club, c/o Kathy Sabol, 119 S.
