I'm a bit of a nerd. I love trivia, especially music trivia. I watch Jeopardy every day. I teach a music history class at the college and have a trivia section with my students, and even quiz people at work. I'm not great at it, but it's fun.
This is why I'm excited about the second annual Pervasive Parenting Trivia Night coming up on March 5. This is something that we took over last year after the Special Olympics stopped a couple years back. It's a great night filled with trivia, fellowship, costumes, food, and fun.
Unfortunately I don't get to play, but I love watching everyone else participate.
The event will be held at The Community State Bank in Poteau, OK to raise funds for the Pervasive Parenting Center.
I want to invite everyone to attend.
This year’s theme will be 80s Movies, so each team can dress as characters from your favorite 80s movie (costumes are optional).
The event will start at 7 p.m., with registration beginning at 6 p.m.
Funds raised will go to the Pervasive Parenting Center and will be used to help families in the area coping with disabilities.
There will be 10 rounds of questions varying in category, but most will be 80s themed.
Price to participate will be $100 per team. The teams can include from six to 10 members. Prizes will be given for 1st and 2nd place teams as well as best costume as a team and as an individual.
There will be free food and drinks for participants.
We work so hard to help the families of this area coping with disabilities find resources to help make life better. The funds raised from this event can help us continue to bring trainings, conferences, resources, and programs to this area.
Entry forms can be picked up and dropped off at the following establishments: Poteau Daily News, Clip Joint, and Carl Albert State College in Sallisaw. You can also register online at: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/pervasive-parenting-trivia- night-80s-movies-tickets-20085511305
The deadline for registration in Friday, February 26.
Checks should be made payable to Pervasive Parenting Center and can be given on the night of the event, or mailed to PO Box 574, Panama, OK 74951.
