Local Trivia Contest

February 24, 2013

 Do you have a knack for remembering volumes of random information? Do friends argue over who gets to have you on their Trivial Pursuit™ team? WSIU Public Radio, a public media arm of Southern Illinois University, invites you to put that quick brain to work in support of the Southern Illinois Radio Information Service (SIRIS) at the first SIRIS Trivia Night fundraiser.

The event will be held on Saturday, March 2 at 6pm at the Newman Center, 715 South Washington in Carbondale. WSIU-TV's Jak Tichenor will be Master of Ceremonies. Doors open at 6pm; the trivia contest will begin at 6:30pm.

Teams of up to eight people will compete for first, second, and third place prizes. Individuals and teams are welcome. Registration is $15 per person or $120 per team. Teams can register beforehand by calling SIRIS at (618) 453-2808 or on site on the day of the event. Bring your own food and drink, or buy snacks from SIRIS.

All sale proceeds will benefit SIRIS, a radio information service for individuals who are blind or whose physical condition makes reading difficult or impossible. Broadcasts include regional and national newspapers, magazines, and books. SIRIS is supported in part by the United Way.

Questions should be directed to Vickie Devenport at (618) 453-6148,vickie.devenport@wsiu.org or by calling SIRIS at (618) 453-2808.
