NILES - Big Brothers Big Sisters of Berrien and Cass is asking the community for their help to make their second annual Trivia Night Fun Raiser as big of a success as it was this past year.
The trivia night will take place on Saturday, Jan 14, 2006, at St. Mark's Parish Hall, located at 115 N. 19th St., Niles.
There are only 30 tables available for the event so reservations need to be made by Friday, Jan. 6, said Mahlon Wise, executive director of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Berrien and Cass.
Teams of up to 10 players may enter for a cost of $150 per table. The winning team will receive a $250 prize.
Doors for the fun filled night will open at 6 p.m., with the game starting at 6:30 p.m.
Those playing will need to bring their own tail-gate munchies, there will be free pop and coffee, and a cash bar for beer and wine.
For more information or to make a reservation for your team, call Big Brothers Big Sisters of Berrien &Cass at (269) 684-1100 or e-mail them at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Funds raised from the trivia night festivities will help Big Brother Big Sisters of Berrien &Cass to continue the programs they offer to children in the area who need adult mentors.
Big Brothers Big Sisters would also like to remind the community they have moved their offices.
In May 2005 they moved from their old facility at the corner of North Fifth and Broadway to new offices at 10 N. Third St.
Wise said the move was necessary to reduce the administrative overhead cost and obtain housing more in keeping in what space they actually need.
