The Greater Kansas City Alumnae Chapter is adding a new fundraiser this year- trivia night!

At our executive board meeting last spring, we brainstormed some new ideas for fundraisers that went beyond just selling things to friends and family. Several of our board members suggested a trivia night- many of us attend live trivia nights ourselves, and we have lots of friends who do, too.

Here are the details:

  • When: Saturday, August 27
  • Time: 6:30 p.m.
  • Where: Conroy's Pub, 3115 W. 6th St., Lawrence

Yes, this event is in Lawrence. A little farther to drive for many of our Kansas City alumnae, but we have lots of alumnae members in Lawrence, too! And Lawrence is a fun little town.

Conroy's is a great local Irish bar and grill that serves a wide variety of delicious food. Food and drinks will be available for purchase, and we definitely encourage you to take advantage of a night out and enjoy dinner or appetizers, too!

The cost is $10 per person, and teams can be as small as one person or as big as you want it to be. But, keep in mind, team size may have to be limited by the table sizes available.

We would prefer payment in advance, so we know how many people to plan for and also so we don't go over the room's capacity of about 50 people. However, if you can't commit in advance, just check back and make sure we still have space available before you show up, and then you can pay at the event.

You can pay by check or Paypal. Checks can be mailed to Treasurer Debbi Johanning, 1313 Connecticut, Lawrence, KS 66044. Or, you can pay via Paypal by sending your payment to johanning(at)sunflower(dot)com.

We'll also have prizes available, to be determined.

You can RSVP on Facebook and see who else is attending. Please spread the word among your trivia-loving friends! This event is not restricted to members of Alpha Omicron Pi.

Money raised will help benefit various local and national philanthropies, including scholarships and arthritis research.
