Trivia Night benefits Carlson Community Services’ neighborhood programs – The Magic After-School Place, Three Brothers Garden and Irving Park Fine Arts Concert Series.
Thanks to everyone who participated in Carlson Community Services’ October 2016 Trivia Night to benefit Carlson’s programs. Eighteen teams ranging in age from 20 somethings to septuagenarians competed. From players to sponsors to raffle and beverage donors, we are grateful for your support!
A team led by long-time West Walker residents Phil and Roberta Bole won the 8-round competition, leading the contest for much of the night. Good competitors and good sports, their team donated $120 of their $200 in prize winnings back to Carlson Community Services.
The evening netted approximately $8,500 for Carlson’s programs — The Magic After-School Place, Three Brothers Garden and the Irving Park Fine Arts Concert Series.
Thanks to the following Round Sponsors and Raffle Prize donors who helped make the evening a financial success: Round Sponsors were Dorie Westmeyer, Charles Rutenberg Realty, Wintrust Bank, Mayfair Branch, Alderman John Arena, 45th Ward, Lichter Realty, Carlson Community Services Board & Committees. Raffle and silent auction donors were Old Irving Brewing, WMAQ-TV, Community Tavern, and West Walker neighbors. Special thanks to Lagunitas Brewing Company and Verizon Enterprise for beer and wine donations. A shout goes out to event chair Helen Lira, our many volunteers and to our host, Irving Park Lutheran Church. Another fun night in the neighborhood for a great cause!
